Gus - ADOPTED!'s Story...
ADOPTED!
*GUS*
#278-16
Male Mix Breed
Date in: 7/11/16

My name is Gus and I have been having a harder time than most adjusting to life in a kennel at the Muskingum County Dog Warden & Adoption Center. Unfamiliar people can scare me a little and make me nervous but once I warm up, I am a completely different boy! I am pretty easy to get in and out of my kennel and walk well on a leash. So far I have gotten along with all of the dogs I have met but I have not been around any cats or kids yet. If you want to visit me, please understand that I may come off a little gruff at first, but if a volunteer can introduce us, you'll see that I really am a calm, older guy who is just trying to protect myself from the unknown.

Available for adoption at:
Muskingum County Dog Warden & Adoption Center
1500 Newark Rd., Zanesville, Ohio 43701
740-453-0273

Please call ahead if you plan to visit.
Open M-F 11-5 and Saturday 11-1.

Adoption fee is $105 which includes spay/neuter, combo and rabies shots, Bordetella vaccine, heartworm test and dog tags. (Although some of the dogs come to the pound spayed or neutered, most do not. If you adopt a dog that has not yet been spayed/neutered, we will set up an appointment for the dog to be spayed/neutered before it can leave the facility.)

Act quickly to adopt Gus - ADOPTED!. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gus - ADOPTED!, a Zanesville Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Zanesville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Zanesville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Zanesville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Zanesville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Zanesville paves the way for another one to be saved.
