"Oboe" is a magnificent 9-year old male Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix who was surrendered by his owner on February 9, 2015. This handsome big guy has a chocolate brown short smooth coat with white highlights on his chest, a long tail, and a noble-looking face with a dusting of white on his muzzle, a liver-colored nose, and semi-erect ears. "Oboe" has been in our shelter for almost two years now, and he longs for a real home with a family of his very own. Our kennel techs dearly love "Oboe" but shelter life is no substitute for a loving home environment :( We know there is the perfect home for him if we can just find it.. "Oboe" usually gets along ok with other dogs if introduced slowly, but he does NOT like cats. He appears to be ok with older children. “Oboe” would probably be happier if he could find a home without other animals and could be an ‘only child’. His previous owner provided a detailed two-page document about Oboe (which includes hands/voice commands that he recognizes, vocabulary words that he knows, and some of his fears .. windshield wipers, beeping sounds, etc). We'd highly suggest that potential adopters/rescue groups take the time to read through the document since it really explains a lot about Oboe's background and experiences. He is originally a 'California Boy'! "Oboe" weighs approximately 70 lbs. He has already been neutered, and he is housebroken. We would recommend that he be placed in a home with an experienced handler (and would have no contact with cats). "Oboe" is a GREAT dog for the right home. Please call the HSOV at 740.373.5959 or send an email to if you would like to meet this special boy. Rescue groups may contact our Canine Rescue Coordinator via email ( We can usually help with transportation. These updated photos of "Oboe" were taken on October 8, 2016 when “Oboe” and one of his favorite volunteers (Jo Ellen Gray) participated in a ‘Blessing of the Animals’ Event which was sponsored by the Williamstown WV Ministerial Alliance. “Oboe” was marvelous that day, and we were so proud of our big boy <3
