He came into the pound as a teenage pup in 2014. The shelter pulled him from the local pound when we had space available so that he would no longer be on euthanasia countdown. He was adopted and kept for a year or so. Then he was brought back because he was a bit too much puppy for the family. The shelter put him through the cell dog training program. He learned crate training, basic commands and some tricks. He was adopted again but returned after a short trial in that home. He is not listed as a cell dog now since it has been a while since his training. At the shelter, the dogs are at the mercy of how many dog walkers pick them to take out. The "pretty" dogs get walked a lot and the others, not so much. Those walked less frequently lose their ability to stay "housebroken". So, the longer they are back in the building after cell dog training, the more of their training is lost so he is at normal adoption fees now and with his sponsored amount, he is only $50 plus OH dog tags. He does have the concept of going to potty outside still, and given a choice and enough walks, he will use the bathroom outside. He can sit on command, stay, roll over and shake hands. He is a very jolly boy and still quite young at about 2 years old. He is on the high energy side and can play a bit rough so he is listed as only older respectful children. If you have other dogs, he would need a dog playmate of similar size and energy to play at an equal level.. He could be available for a home trial, or a meet and greet with an adopter's canine could be arranged. 740-452-1077 ext 0 or ext 107 to make further arrangements.

If the pup is old enough and the dogs, it will also get a rabies vaccine and heart worm tested. **Sponsored dogs will have their adoption fees reduced by the sponsored amount. Occasionally we have a highly adoptable dog or a dog that has had more extensive medical cost that may be priced slightly higher to offset the price reductions for some of the lesser adoptable dogs or extra medical cost* *All of our dogs/puppies are spayed/neutered before going home. If you choose a dog/pup that has not had their surgery yet, it is still available for adoption/deposit but it must stay till it's surgery is competed on the next available surgery slot. We do work with approved rescues as well. If you are traveling to adopt, please check to see if the pup or dog is ready to travel.
