German Shepherd Dog
Schipperke, Mix

An adotable dog in Oak Ridge, NJ

  • Senior
  • Medium
  • Female

Meet Omega, a sad but sweet little skinny ~7 year old shepherd mix who has had a horrible life and is looking forward to a fresh start. She was the last of 17 dogs confiscated from a neglect situation, left behind because she was hiding outside. The local inner city shelter she ended up at is closing for renovations and needed to get all the dogs out immediately- she was again the last dog out and we saved her just in time! We hope her luck is changing and she won't be the last to be adopted... despite her fear she seems very sweet and looking for someone to trust. She is only about 25lbs and probably 10lbs underweight, and was covered in fleas and missing most of her hair (most likely due to skin infections/allergies from the fleas), and has several small mammary tumors as a result of her previous owners not spaying her. She is at our vet getting the medical attention she needs and will be looking for a calmer home that will make sure she is never neglected again. Please submit an application if you are interested, or click on the sponsor me link on her page to donate toward her medical bills!
We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.
