Max YOUNG Male EXTREMELY URGENT! AT RISK!  HW POSITIVE! This sweet boy is Max. He's 1 year old and has had a rough start to life. He loves people, is easy to get in and out of his kennel, and is very sweet. Max is eager with his food, non-reactive to cats, but considers all dogs a threat so he needs to be the only dog. Max needs a foster o r rescue. He's the only heartworm dog still in the back room, please don't forget him. He's a sweet and energetic one year old who needs to know the love of a family. He is heartworm positive and urgently needs help!
Pickle American Staffordshire Terrier Medium Adult Female  URGENT! 5 year old. Spayed. She is an amazing companion dog. An older girl who doesn't like crowds and stress. The shelter is very hard on her and she really wants to be with a person. She loves belly rubs and she'll be your best friend.

Sheri American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Medium YOUNG Female URGENT! 1 year old, 39lbs. Sheri will snuggle with you all day.She is overlooked as a brown dog, and the sign on her cage says "fence jumper" so people keep walking. Please don't let that identify her. She is great. She loves people. She needs a little training on a leash and someone to just show her love. She knows how to love you..and would make a great dog!

Tank American Staffordshire Terrier Adult Male URGENT! HW POSITIVE!  3.5 years old, 70 pounds. This gorgeous guy is Turk. He's a doll. He doesn't have any food aggression and isn't really interested in toys. He's an old soul. He does great with people but must be the only dog in the home. Turk would be a good companion dog and loyal friend. He's very affectionate. He had a few short days with a foster before they had a medical emergency and brought him back. He was very good for them and loved attention. He is fine out of the kennel but is reacting to being back behind bars and urgently needs a home!

Turk American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Adult Male πŸ’”SAD UPDATE πŸ’” TURK  WAS EUTHANIZED.

HW POSITIVE! HW TREATMENT COVERED! 3 years old. Turk is a real doll. Sadly Turk is heartworm positive and needs a foster home to be able to start treatment. Treatment will be covered by the Foundation so he just needs a place to stay. Once his treatment is done the foster can adopt, they can also choose to foster only till adopted. Rescues are also encouraged to pull. Turk isn't on the adoption floor so just ask to see him and the staff will bring him out.
Hunter Chow Mix Male URGENT! HW POSITIVE! Loves attention. In fact, he craves it. He would benefit from someone that's home a lot where he wouldn't require all day cage time, and someone who is ready to help him burn energy when the time comes after heartworm treatment. He was in a foster home for a short time and his foster mom said he was a good boy making a lot of training progress. Hunter does have food bowl aggression and would need to not be with children. He needs someone that understands this (and won't put their hand in his food bowl while eating) and will work with him. Please help!

 Reese  American Pit Bull Terrier Mix Adult Female URGENT! This gorgeous girl is Reese. She is a 3 year old that is playful, lovable, and looking for someone who will love her and provide a safe place. She is a sweet girl and loves her humans but does need to be the only pet in the home. She would be required to have a fenced yard as well. Reese will adore her person and will be a great friend and loyal companion. Please help!

He needs a home with no other pets or children. He takes a few visits to build trust, once you make friends he will be a great friend and loyal companion. Dart walks really well on a leash. Dart is also great on field tripsβ€”he rides great in the car and behaves well in public. He is smart and knows some tricks. He's shy and has a hard time trusting so he needs a special person. He needs someone with patience and love who is willing to show him he can trust. He spends a lot of time in the office up front which has helped him a lot and they can talk to you in more detail about what type of environment Dart would thrive in. Please give him a chance!

Kenny Labrador Retriever/American Bulldog Mix Medium Adult Male - HAS BEEN AT SHELTER TWO YEARS! ADOPTION FEE SPONSORED! My name is Kenny. I'm a very happy easy going type of guy. I love to give doggie kisses and play. I just love those squeaky toys. The kind people here at OCFA have said that I'm a good boy around other dogs and have shown no interest in cats. This is Kenny, he has been at Owen county animal shelter for 2 years now!! He has come a long way in those two years! He has even been to a board and train, but what Kenny really needs is somebody who is experienced with larger dogs that will make him listen and obey. He is a goofball and he is a very lovable boy. He knows that the right person is out there for him. He is very loved at the shelter and is very spoiled. Except he deserves so much more than that, so we are all pleading withCould you please take me into your heart and home? I would love to have my own family.

Lucas Labrador Retriever Mix Large Adult Male 1-2 years old. Sweet boy. Lucas has had a rough start to life. It appears he was hit by a car and left to fend and survive on his own.

Lucas is currently recovering at the shelter.

7. Millfield/Chauncey, OH: URGENT DOGS! EUTH DATE SET!

*******************************************************************************************UPDATE 11/30  HAPPY UPDATE - BOTH DOGS ON TODAY'S EUTH LIST ARE SAFE!!

 Creed  Pit Bull Terrier Medium Young Male RESCUED! 1 to 2 years old. Creed is housebroken and crate-trained, good with men, women and kids. Not good with other dogs. Cats unknown. He will come and sit to his name. This gorgeous, happy, people pleaser is going to be euthanized on November 30th. He is young, healthy and devastatingly ignorant of what the last day of November will bring. Creed is a wiggly, friendly guy that likes to sit on your feet while you give him chest scratches. He loves to look at you upside-down, and leans against anyone petting him just to be close to them. Creed is an extremely handler-centered dog that makes you feel like you are the light of his world.  Like any young, healthy dog, Creed is very trainable. He also has the abundant energy of youth, and being cooped up in a kennel all day does not bode well. Creed has been disadvantaged in that he has had little or no obedience training. We feel Creed would do well placed in a home, or foster, with no children or other animals, at least in the beginning, until he learns to channel his energy into listening and learning. Creed’s savior should be experienced enough to set expectations  of him early. He wants to please, and we feel he wants, and needs, structure and consistency. This is a young dog that has great potential in the right hands.

Hardy Shar Pei/Hound Mix Large Young Male RESCUED!! 1 to 2 years old, 53lbs, Neutered. This is a dog that has probably never known the gentle hand of an adoring owner, a warm bed in the winter, or the comfort of a happy home. He was found in rough condition with patchy fur and areas of thin hair, most likely from previously unchecked fleas.  He has probably spent a good portion of his life alone and fending for himself. He is energetic, but our volunteers have handled him just fine with appropriate head-control type leashes such as a gentle leader. Hardy is somewhat fence reactive to other dogs and displays kennel aggression while inside his kennel, but outside the kennel he is very different.  In a controlled situation with an experienced trainer, he was neutral to other dogs with a slow introduction on leash.  After being outside the shelter for a while Hardy is much more relaxed.  He is friendly to people, likes getting petted and tunes into his handler when given attention. As you can see from his photo, he's got the greatest smile!

Ruby Boxer Mix Large Adult Female -  5 years old. Ruby is an excellent dog! She is very loving and intelligent. She has had house-training and knows several commands, such as sit, lay, stay, paw, and roll over. She was surrendered due to her owner having some life changes. She has not been socialized with other dogs and typically does not get along with them. Therefore, we think Ruby would do best in a home without other pets. We also require her new home to have a fenced in yard. Ruby is  full of love and spunk. She deserves another chance and a FOREVER home.

Sally Domestic Short Hair Gray/Silver Medium Adult Female -  4 years old. Spayed.  Sally  was surrendered because her owner passed away. Sally is a very friendly and lovable cat that used to being with one person and the only pet. Sally would make a great companion pet. She is currently being fostered at The Critter Cradle.
