I am a special needs pet.

Libby's Story...
Libby is an adorable senior female Dachshund who arrived at the HSOV on May 23, 2017 after a Good Samaritan found her on Third Street in Marietta Ohio and brought her to the safety of our shelter. The kind lady who gave her a ride thought she seemed hungry so she stopped and brought her a cheeseburger (much to Libby's delight!)

Libby was wearing a collar but, unfortunately, there was neither an id tag nor a dog tag to enable us to locate her family.

This little sweetheart has a fawn-colored coat, short legs, a long body, a long tail, and a Classic Doxie face with a long slender muzzle and extra-large floppy ears. Libby has an extremely friendly personality and adores attention. She also loves to snuggle in your arms.

Libby is a petite little lady who weighs 9.2 lbs.

In compliance with the Ohio Revised Code, Libby will be held for three days so that her owner has an opportunity to reclaim her. She will be available for adoption on May 26, 2017 if she is not reclaimed before that date.

Surely her family is missing this little girl since she seems like someone's beloved pet.

Libby is now available for adoption since she was not reclaimed. We've learned that Libby has a high-grade heart murmur, and we are very happy to report that she was adopted on May 30th and found the perfect home where she will be loved and cherished <3

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Libby, a Marietta Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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