The Rescue Round-Up

| 15 Feb 2012 | 09:17

Second Chance Pet Adoption League Tailgate is a 2-year-old shepherd/hound mix rescued from life on the streets. He is timid, but sweet and playful once he warms up. He loves female dogs in particular. Tailgate is gentle and well-mannered, walks nicely on a leash, and is housebroken. Zeke is a 6-year-old longhaired dachshund mix surrendered to a local shelter because his owners had no time for him. He is a friendly, quirky little guy who likes attention. He would prefer to be the only pet in an adult household. For more information on Tailgate, Zeke, and other dogs for adoption at Second Chance, call 973-208-1054 or visit Adoption days are every Sunday from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains at 3009 Route 10 East, Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). Eleventh Hour Rescue Dutch is a 10-year-old Dutch Shepherd. He is a sweet, gentle, easy going old man with lots of soul and character in his aging face. Surrendered by his owners, Dutch is now looking for a warm, friendly, and kind home to live out his life with. He is in good health and has plenty of spunk and love left to give. Dutch gets along with other dogs and loves people of all ages. He is a mellow old fellow that he would fit well into any home situation, including with first time dog owners. Shiloh is a 9-year-old Husky/German Shepherd mix. She weighs about 50 pounds and had lots of land to run around at her previous home. Shiloh was attacked by a bear at one time and while fine now, she takes a daily aspirin just to ease some pain. She’s an active girl who also enjoys napping in bed. Shiloh is good with cats, but can be dog selective at times; she has lived with other dogs in the past, however. Shiloh is housetrained and loves people and car rides. To learn more about Dutch, Shiloh, or other pets for adoption at Eleventh Hour Rescue, visit, email, or call 973-664-0865. Paws 2 Your Heart Georgia is a 2 1/2-year-old Jack Russell/Pug mix. She is a sweet little ball of energy, about 15 pounds and full grown. Crate trained, house trained, and knows sit command. Georgia loves kids and other dogs; she would do great in a home that has children and a fenced yard for her to run around in. Grant is a 5-month-old Black Lab mix (about 40 to 50 pounds full grown). He’s very sweet and extremely mellow for being so young. He is crate trained, leash trained, and about 90 percent housebroken. He loves to play, but he’d rather sit on the sofa giving kisses and cuddle time. Grant is great with kids, other dogs, and cats.
