The Rescue Round-Up

| 30 Sep 2011 | 09:51

Second Chance Pet Adoption League Mona is a 7-year-old Pomeranian mix who was found wandering all alone and completely blind. Despite her abandonment, she is a cheerful, friendly girl who loves attention. She hears well and is very alert. Blind dogs adjust very easily to a routine using their other senses. She looks like a teddy bear. Mona deserves a home that will make sure she is safe for the rest of her life. Riley is an adorable one year-old Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix. He is a little nervous at first, but quickly warms up into a cuddly, playful puppy. He gets along with most other animals and is crate-trained. Riley should be easily housebroken once he’s on a schedule. He is only about 12 pounds full grown with a short, but thick soft coat, and looks like a tiny liver-colored German Shepherd. Riley will make a fun, affectionate companion for a calmer adult home with the time to socialize him. Second Chance dogs can be seen by appointment only or every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). For more information on Mona, Riley, and Second Chance, visit or call 973-208-1054. Paws 2 Your Heart Pepper is a 1-year-old, female petite German shorthair pointer/lab mix. She is super sweet, house trained, crate trained, great with other dogs, and loves children. Pepper’s owners abandoned her in South Carolina when they moved. Her family left her in a crate on their front porch and no one knew she was there until the landlord found her. Pepper is now safe in a loving foster home in N.Y. Morgan is a 1-year-old female lab/pitbull mix with beautiful grey/black markings. She still has a lot of her puppy energy. She’s a great girl, crate trained, house trained, and loves other dogs. Since Morgan can be rough during play, it’s suggested that she not have any little kids in her new family. Her owner surrendered her because he no longer had time for her. For more information on Pepper, Morgan, or Paws 2 Your Heart, visit or call 973-271-6897. Eleventh Hour Rescue Randy is a 9-year-old male beagle who is relaxed, confident, and happy. He will go to the door and let you know when he has to go out. He loves hanging out and should be easy to work with as he is very food motivated...especially for turkey pepperoni. Randy is quiet and low-energy. Elly Mae is a 3-year-old female with adorable ears; they stick straight up like two satellite dishes. She is smart, attentive, and affectionate. This pretty girl is everyone’s favorite at adoption events, but she’s yet to find her family. To learn more about Randy, Elly Mae, or Eleventh Hour Rescue visit or call 973-664-0865.
