Big pooch needs a home in Hoboken

Abandoned on Thanksgiving – Big love needed for big pooch in Hoboken

This is very sad. Yesterday, a giant dog was found abandoned near Church Square Park in Hoboken. He appears to be a Bullmastiff – and around 1 to 1.5 years of age.

Hoboken Police kept the dog all day yesterday, where he was walked and fed before Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City picked him up. The dog may be enormous, but he’s well-trained and very healthy. He “gave paw” and loved handing out kisses to everyone!

Bullmastiffs are known for their friendliness, loyalty and willingness to please. They make great family pets!

He’s on a 7-day hold at Liberty Humane – and after that, God knows what will happen to him! So if you or anyone you know is in the market for a loving four-legged companion – please head over to LHS (235 Jersey City Blvd, Jersey City, NJ – map) or give them a call ASAP at (201)547-4147.

These stories break my heart. How anyone could be so cruel blows my mind. There are so many dog lovers in this town. Have the balls and say I made a mistake someone please help me. Why should a helpless animal suffer the consequences of a complete asshole. This person and others should serve time as far as I am concerned. We need a hidden camera to catch these bastards that keep abandoning their animals. Good luck pooch I am sure you will find a loving home.

As far as being too big for Hoboken. That is crazy. Dogs here get as much if not more exercise then many dogs I know that live in the suburbs with huge backyards. Its the love and caring dog owner that makes the life of the pet not the size of your dwelling.

That’s a really nice offer, but how does anyone know the Boston commenter is serious? It’s one thing to want to adopt a dog, and an entirely different thing to deal with the reality. Especially with an adult dog. Also, if it does not work out in Boston will the dog have the safety net it now has here?[quote comment=”222253″]For the person who wrote about getting him to Boston – I’ll drive him up.

Liberty Shelter giving inaccurate info – NO!! Maybe his foster will act as a go between so you can see about applying for the dog. The foster parent(s) would also be an influence in choosing the new owner.

I just called Liberty Humane….the dog has been reclaimed by his owner.

I appears today is the end of the hold. If Liberty Humane has “ownership” of the dog and he is being fostered though them, put in your application right away. I would go over there and hand deliver along w a copy of your license and any lease or proof of ownership/residence and a checkbook. They are open tip 7PM. But you gotta call dibs!!

In the mean time maybe the Foster can set up a time to meet.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
