Camelot Puppy Sanctuary


  • Breed: Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
SHEP Is a wonderful friendly 2 year old that, despite being in a extremely bad situation(they threatened to shoot him for trying to play with some chickens) is still loving, friendly, playful, loves everybody 2 legged and 4 legged alike. And so Forgiving, despite his neglect. He is safe at the moment in a kennel, where he amuses himself all day with toys that he really enjoys tossing up in the air. He loves kids,(everybody really). A wonderful neighbor who learned of his plight took him to her house, in hopes that someone would open their hearts to him. Susan has a dozen other dogs and just cannot keep him. He has never been in a house, so is probably not housebroken and he is not neutered yet. We would be happy to add $50 to the expense of having him neutered.
He is a bit submissive and just lacks confidence...teaching him lots of tricks and stimulating his brain, will help him to gain confidence. And I AM sure he would enjoy a passel of kids to play with! And he has always been a homebody..his former owners brought in free range chickens and Shep just thought that they might be fun to play with because he was bored and ignored (he just played a bit too hard)
He is very quiet, which may be because he was punished for barking. This fella has great potential and We are praying for a Christmas miracle in finding a friendly home for him.
Please call Susan at 740-395-0504 or email her at
Shep is located in Zaleski Ohio 45651 (if you would like to mapquest us or meet him).
And THANKS SOOOOOO Much for YOUR Consideration of a dog in great need of a little LOVE~

About Camelot Puppy Sanctuary

About Our Shelter...

Camelot was created to help abandoned moms and their pups. They are brought to us by Doggie Angels, who find them in some precarious situation and do not want to take them to the county dog shelter. We adopt the pups, spay the moms and find the moms a home too! Any pups with health issues that are unadoptable, get to spend their lives here. Please consider a donation to help support these 'special needs kids'
UPDATE: although we do occasionally have puppies, kittens and dogs to adopt, most of our mission at the moment, is to provide housing and fun for the many unadoptables(due to age or illness) that have come to call Camelot home. We also support a Cat Sanctuary(Creekside Cat Sanctuary) with the same purpose. Please consider a donation..large or small, it will be an investment with continued and lifelong dividends.

"In short there's simply not.....

A more Congenial spot.....

For happily ever aftering.....

Than here at CAMELOT! "

UPDATE...while we still help abandoned moms and pups, our focus is now on dogs that are being displaced and winding up in shelters, due to economic situations. Lots of these dogs are older but they are as deserving as the young little whipper-snappers, who are very easy to find homes for.
We maintain optimum Well Being with a Natural diet of raw and cooked meat and raw meaty bones. They are carnivores. All our Sanctuary Residents and adoptables are use to eating real food and may not transition well to a kibble based diet.

Our Adoption Process...

We require a contract for spay/neuter, a vet reference and a home visit when possible. All adoptions are for a Free Will donation. We want our dogs and kitties to go to as many homes as possible and trust that you will know in your Heart what your new compaion is worth to you.
We LOVE it when you call us and will return ALL calls on all our dogs, if the dog or cat is still available.
And if you might need help re-homing your current pet, Please do not hesitate to call us, as we network with lots of rescue folks and will help you find the perfect place for your loved one.
