My name is Unique, and if you think I'm just like all the other pitties walking around, you are so wrong! Yeah I'm a blocky girl and I'm wiggly sometimes, but I've got this knowing look in my eyes that will make you stop and do a double take. Some dogs communicate with their mouths, and sure, I do that too, but I have found that my eyes work much better! When I first came to the Muskingum County Dog Warden & Adoption Center I was caught in this legal mumbo jumbo and I spent week after week just sitting in a kennel without any exercise and very little interaction. It was a complete nightmare!! But now I've been moved up front to the "premium" kennels and I am living the life! I have my own bed, I can go outside whenever I want, and the volunteers take me for walks! I adore children and grew up in a home with toddlers, so I know how to behave with them. On the down side, I'm not supposed to go to a home with other animals. If you are interested in me and have other dogs, you will have to talk to the Warden to see if he will make an exception...but don't be mad if he says "No." In the meantime, I'll be here, living it up as much as possible!

About Muskingum County Dog Pound & Kennel

About Our Shelter...

The Muskingum County Dog Pound & Kennel is responsible for answering calls from the general public about dogs running loose or at large in the Muskingum County area. The dog warden picks up the animal and brings it back to the dog pound/kennel. The dog is kept at the pound/kennel for 3 days. If the owner doesn't claim the dog, then the dog is officially up for adoption. The Muskingum County Dog Pound & Kennel receives several dogs weekly. Unfortunately, our facility can only hold so many dogs at one time and euthanasia is the only option. Many dogs only have a few weeks to live. Our goal, with your help, is to adopt as many dogs as possible into loving homes or to rescue groups. Please have your pets spayed or neutered.
