Zoee American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Young  Female URGENT! STRESSED AT SHELTER! DESPERATELY NEEDS A FOSTER HOMED! SHE IS LOSING WEIGHT! 8-10 months old, 30bs. Spayed. Anyone that has seen Zoee more recently knows that she has lost so much weight, that every bone in her body is visible. The shelter vet has done blood work, fecals tests, and other measures to try to figure out why she is losing so much weight. Right now, we feel it is definitely the stress of the shelter. Zoee will need a decompression period. Zoee has been evaluated and even though staff said she was aggressive with other dogs, an expert did not see any aggression towards other dogs. The shelter environment is not good for her. Can you please help this beautiful girl out of the cage? She loves to play with other dogs, doesn’t mind cats and needs some work on house training. She is sweet and playful.

Zara Pharaoh Hound Mix Young Female - IN FOSTER - NEEDS A FOREVER HOME! Spayed.  We still cannot understand why Zara, 10-12 month old beautiful girl has not found her forever home yet.

Please consider adopting Zara so her current foster parents can foster a new dog in need. Click her to start your journey:

King Chocolate Lab Mix Large Young Male EXTREMELY URGENT! LONG TIMER! HE HAS BEEN AT THE SHELTER TOO LONG! Neutered. 1 year old and weighs 54lbs. Super sweet boy, but needs to be an only pet. King is VERY high energy and being stuck in a kennel is very stressful for him. He was evaluated by a professional trainer and they feel that he is a little dog reactive but that this could possibly be worked with. He was non-reactive to cats. He is a very sweet boy that just needs a home where he can get plenty of exercise and love. He doesn't show well in his kennel but he is a great boy! King has attended an adoption event and was very sweet and did very well with everyone too.

Dart Terrier/Shepherd Mix Adult Male URGENT! Dart is a 2 years old and weighs 39 pounds. He is a little timid at first but warms up quickly and becomes a lap dog. The shelter thinks he might be OK with other animals once out of the shelter environment and more comfortable.

Serius Black Lab Mix Large Young Male URGENT! LONG TIMER! HE HAS BEEN AT THE SHELTER SINCE FEBRUARY! Approximately 2 years old and weighs 55lbs. Neutered. Great boy. He is a super sweet boy, but he does not care much for the shelter life. He did not test well with other dogs but was tested shortly after arriving at the shelter and seemed to be more scared than aggressive. He doesn’t understand why he is being overlooked! NEEDS A HOME OR RESCUE!

Mrs. Potts Domestic Short Hair Adult Female - NOT DOING WELL WITH SHELTER LIFE! 2 years old. I am not sick at all but being in this environment has made be not have an appetite. I need to put on a few pounds. I am super sweet, I just need to be in a home. Anybody? Spayed. 
Teddy American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Large Adult Male EXTREMELY URGENT! DEAF! RESCUE FELL THROUGH! HAS $25 SPONSORSHIP! Teddy is about 2 years old and weighs 66lbs.  He is deaf. Teddy is a GREAT boy and REALLY needs to find his forever home! He is good with other dogs and non-reactive to cats.  UPDATE: Teddy had Rescue commitment, that due to no fault of his own, he will be returning to the shelter. Unfortunately, a rescue volunteer that helped transport him, was supposed to hold him until his foster home got off work. Instead of abiding by the rules of the rescue, and keeping him separated from resident dogs, understanding that decompression is a MUST, they let him interact with all five of their resident dogs and he got into a scuffle with one. Due to the incident, the foster home backed out and they now have no where for him to go, so he will be coming back to the shelter. He was set up to fail. He is breaking my heart. He came from a bad situation, and has been at the shelter since February. He is deaf, which is even more of a stress factor for him. Teddy is a GREAT dog, and with proper introductions and some decompression time, I have no doubt he will be a great family member.

Mr. B Mixed Breed Young Male URGENT! LONG TIMER! HAS $25 SPONSORSHIP! Mr. B is approximately 1 year old and weighs 56lbs. Neutered. He is very active and high energy, and would do best in an active home. He would do best in a home with no other pets. He has been at the shelter since February and is desperately seeking a home of his own!

Diamond American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Young Adult Female ADOPTED AND RETURNED TWICE! 1 year old, 39lbs. Spayed. Due to no fault of her own, this girl has been returned to the shelter twice. She is still just a pup and is full of energy. She needs a home where she will not be kenneled more than she has time out of the kennel. While we do recommend kenneling when you are not home, in order to protect her from getting into things she shouldn't and to protect your home as well. A home where she can get exercise and the love she needs. We are told she is a counter surfer, and that is a behavior that can be worked with and corrected. PLEASE do not attempt to adopt her unless you are committed to helping her learn how to be a dog inside of a home. While she didn't test good with dogs inside of the shelter, she was evaluated by a professional and this is what they said: Barrier Frustration, will act aggressive toward other dogs through the age, barrier or window, but no reaction on leash with no barrier. She was able to walk past another dog on leash with no issues. Recommend testing with any potential home. OUTSIDE the shelter. Not reactive to cats at all.--More scared of them than anything. No evidence that she will chase, no interest when they would move or swipe at her. VERY toy motivated.

Queen American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Adult Female - ADOPTED AND RETURNED! 4 years old, 36lbs. Spayed. Queen  has tested well with other dogs, and was returned because she was destructive in the home. We recommend crating her when you are not home, to protect her from getting into something that can harm her, and to protect your belongings! She was in the shelter for quite awhile before getting adopted, and she needs a home that is willing to give her time to decompress and get familiar with her environment and that will have patience with her while she learns how to live in a home.

Ceberus American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Young Male IN FOSTER/NEEDS ADOPTION/RESCUE! 1 year old. This handsome boy is very playful and social. He is non reactive to other dogs and cats.

Truman Pit Bull Terrier Large Adult Male - Meet our handsome guy, Truman. He enjoys nothing more than getting affection/attention. He is a big baby that wants love and a forever home!

He is good with other dogs and children. 

Russell Pit Bull Terrier Medium Adult Male URGENT Meet our handsome lad, Russell. He is around 1-2 years old and has the prettiest hazel eyes we've seen.

I would love to have my own family.

Lady Labrador Retriever Mix Large Adult Female - Lady is approximately 3 years old and weighs about 70 pounds. She is a very friendly and affectionate dog. She is very sweet, great with kids, cats and other dogs. Housebroken, friendly, loves attention and play time, but is one big couch potato in the house! She also likes to cuddle with kitties!!

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. His broken leg healed, so he now has a limp but is still using the leg for balance. Lucas went to the vet to have surgery, however his leg had healed badly making a pin placement not possible. Lucas is currently recovering at the shelter.

Milo Mastiff/Lab Mix Large SENIOR Male -  Milo is about 60 pounds but should be about 80 pounds. He is approximately 9 years old.  Milo is a low key guy just looking for a little love. He is good with other dogs and is sharing a small kennel with a female dog because of overcrowding. It looks as if Milo could use some extra feedings to get his weight back up. Milo has been good around children. He has not been tested with cats.
Violet Pit Bull Terrier Large Adult Female - Violet is about 6 years old and 50 pounds. Gorgeous and sweet. She has been good with smaller dogs and children. She even allowed some young girls at the shelter to play dress up with her up in the lobby. Violet is spayed.

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.
