Buddy, the 1 to 2 year old Lab who was skin and bones, was pulled from a shelter by Special Needs K9 last week and taken to the vet for shots and a check up. He was too frail to even be considered for neutering at that time, which will be taken care of as soon as he puts some weight on.
Buddy has already been adopted by a wonderful family and is doing great. His new family reports that he is getting along with their cats, neighbor’s dog and responding well to training. He goes for a walk everyday and is receiving much love.
Thank you Melinda and family for letting Buddy into your lives and giving him a loving home!
Jack is a 10 year old wire haired Jack Russel, who is visually impaired, in fact he is almost, but not completely blind.
Jack’s story is especially tragic since he lost his owner and his home, all at once. After his owner died, Jack was turned over to the Monmouth County SPCA in Eatontown, NJ where he is currently residing.
The SPCA reported that there is zero interest in Jack who has cataracts and asked us for help in getting Jack into a foster or permanent home. Jack can still see shadows and gets around just fine. He is very motivated by toys and loves to play fetch, which is a good indication that he can in fact still see to a degree.
Jack still has a lot of energy and likes to go for walks. He proudly walks around with toys in his mouth and loves to have his chin rubbed.
He is good with other dogs, neutered and up to date with all his shots.
Please consider giving this loving dog a chance. He lost so much all at once, yet he still has so much life to live and love to give.
If you would like to find out more about Jack or meet him, please contact us and become a part of something very special!
Stewart is a sweet 5 year old Shiba Inu neutered male that suffers from focal seizures, a condition that is easily controlled with pheno barbital; which is very inexpensive.
Stewart is healthy in all other respects and has had several visits with a neurologist who feels that his seizures are definitely improving.
As with Lexi, the good folks at the Yonkers, NY Shelter asked us to help find a home for Stewart. They also feel that he’ll do even better and make more progress in a home, where he won’t face the everyday stress associated with any shelter environment.
Stewart is also friendly with other dogs, so please give him a chance!
Please contact us if you are interested in meeting Stewart.
Lexi is a 2 year old Pit/Bulldog mix who is deaf. The Yonkers Animal Shelter asked SNK9 for help with Lexi, who was surrendered to them in March of 2010, for no particular reason.
Looking back, the shelter staff think that Lexi was surrendered because she is deaf, a “detail” which was never disclosed to them and took quite a while to find out.
Lexi is smart and will learn command signals as other dogs with her condition have. She likes to play with other dogs and loves being around humans. Lexi has a blanket in her run and takes good care of her things, never destroying anything. She also loves stuffed toys.
If you think you might be the one to give Lexi a chance and some love, please contact us and we will provide a trainer who specializes in working with deaf dogs to get you started.
Hi there! My name is Mr. Cakes but I am also known as Cakey, Cake and Bake, Baker Boy and I am GORGEOUS 3 year old American Bulldog. My foster mom gave me those names because she said I am soooo sweet and well, I kind of had a “crumby” life. You see the people who had me before left me outside all day, every day. I only had about four feet of rope and was surrounded by six foot fences. It was pretty cold some nights and WOW was it hot in the summer! I am not sure why my old owners left me outside, I tried to tell them that I wanted to be indoors with them but I guess they didn’t understand.
But that’s all over now! Lucky me! My foster home has heat, air conditioning and a soft bed for me to lay on every night! I get to play with my foster brothers and sisters too! I love to play a lot, especially with other dogs! I also like running around my yard. One of my favorite things to do is to chase the water from the garden hose. I get to play AND I get a bath at the same time! See? Aren’t I great?
I am very gentle but full of energy. I’m happy being the submissive one in a relationship. I’m a lover, not a fighter!
I’m neutered and up to date with all of my shots.
If you’d like to find out more about this wonderful dog or meet him, you can contact us or you can contact Mr. Cakes directly at his own e-mail: email@example.com.
