Last 3 Howell Dogs: Phoenix, Gus & Dale

There are 3 adoptable pups remaining from the Howell hoarding case rescue: Phoenix, a brindle Frenchie mix and the only girl of the bunch; Gus, who appears to be a light tan Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix and Dale, who appears to be an amber Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix.

These pups have special needs and would do best in a quiet home with another well-adjusted dog who they can learn from. They need help housetraining, learning how to walk on a leash, and how to enjoy simple pleasures, like playing with toys. They’re learning to trust people and are just starting to take treats from a few humans after several months of building trust. Although progress has been made, they have a long way to go.

If you currently have a well-adjusted dog and room in your heart and home for a very special pup, please consider adopting one of these dogs—they deserve to learn what it’s like to truly be a dog and have a loving family.


The Howell Hoarding Case

In June 2016, the SPCA rescued 276 small dogs from a home in Howell, NJ, in what authorities described as the worst hoarding case they’ve ever seen in Monmouth County. Many dogs were on bookshelves, under beds, and between the walls. Many were fearful as they were carried out by rescuers because they had never been exposed to the outdoors. They were never socialized, were frightened of new people and new things, and didn’t know what it meant to truly be a dog. Thankfully they were rescued, and all but these 3 pups have found loving homes of their own. You can read more about the case here.

For more information about Gus, Dale, Phoenix, and other adoptable dogs and cats, contact Monmouth County SPCA at (732) 542-5962 or adoptions@monmouthcountyspca.org. Share this post with the icons below to help them find a new family!
