Gizmo's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Gizmo's Story...
Hello. My name is Gizmo. I'm around 1 year old and I weigh about 40 lbs.
I was seized by the pound during a drug raid at the place where we lived. The police said it is known that the guy who owned us had been taking some of us up to Detroit to fight us. There was some equipment there too that the girls say are consistent with dog fighting. Thankfully, I had not yet began my life in the ring. Although I hadn't been fought, I have been doen very wrong by people. Things some humans could never comprehen and things I wish I could forget. I am head shy and afraid of having my collar messed with (the folks at the pound definitely things I have been strangled some).
I am really glad to have been sprung from that life of living on a log chain. Now I get to have a new, wonderful life with a family that will love me, adore me and never do me wrong again.
I will obviously need a patient family with the time and patience to train a guy like me. Please remember that I haven't had the kindest past or any kind of positive training. I have never known kind words or a soft touch, so I just don't really know how to act when I am treated kindly. I like it but it does take a little bit of time for me to learn to trust new people.
I do get along well with other dogs. Gidget, a friend of mine who also lived where I did, is a good playmate of mine. We LOVE each other.
I am going to make someone a really great dog. I just need a family that will work with me.
If you're looking for a good dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me.

Our adoption fee is $120.00. The adoption fee must be paid in CASH. We are unable to accept personal checks or credit/debit cards for adoption fees. ALL dogs/puppies adopted from our shelter will receive their parvo distemper vaccine, bordetella vaccine, rabies vaccine (if aged at 12 weeks or older), be dewormed with a 3 day course of panacur dewormer, be microchipped, receive their current Ohio dog license and will be spayed or neutered. ALL DOGS/PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED unless a health issue prohibits the surgery from being performed. Not all dogs posted for adoption are spayed/ neutered yet. If you're driving a long distance to adopt, please verify that the vetting process has been completed and dog you're interested in adopting is still available for adoption. The above mentioned vetting is all included in your adoption fee. The adoption fee and what is included in the adoption fee is NON-NEGOTIABLE.

Adoptions MUST be done at the pound and in person as there is paperwork to fill out and an adoption contract that must be signed by the adopter. This means you must be willing to travel to our shelter to adopt.

IF the dog you're interested in adopting has medical conditions or injuries which require medical treatment, we ask that you help with the medical bills so we can continue to help the dogs coming in who need additional vet care.
We are a county run shelter, therefore we cannot control our intake or the health or behavior of the dogs that come in to our shelter.

Although we try our hardest to place all of our adoptable dogs, there are certain circumstances in which any dog in our care could be euthanized at any time and without further notice (IE: sudden untreatable medical condition or injury, temperament or behavioral problems which may not be apparent when the dog first arrives, lack or space, etc.), therefore all dogs at our shelter should be considered urgent. The adoption of a more highly adoptable dog will mean more time for the less adoptable dog in the kennel next to him!

Shelter hours are: Monday-Friday: 8 am- 4 pm
Saturday: 9 am- 12 pm.
The pound is CLOSED to the public on Sunday.
There is nobody in the office on Saturday and Sunday, so therefore we are unable to answer or return phone calls over the weekend.

Can't adopt a dog? We would love to have more volunteers who are able to spend time with our dogs! The dogs LOVE going for walks and the socialization and exercise helps make the dogs more adoptable.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gizmo, a Lisbon Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Staffordshire Bull Terrier for sale in Lisbon, or seeking a Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Lisbon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lisbon 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 Lisbon 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 Staffordshire Bull Terrier breeders who help with Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lisbon paves the way for another one to be saved.
