With a story like his, Banjo’s name should be Blaze or Flame, but his name is the only thing he has left of his former life, so Banjo it is.
You’d never guess Banjo’s history from the way he acts. He loves everyone and is always eager for attention. Right from the moment he walked in the door, he was more than happy to greet everyone, whether they were human or dog, with his tail wagging happily.
But we can only imagine how frightened he must have been on the night he lost everything. Banjo is one of only three canine survivors of a housefire in Trumbull County a few weeks ago. His human family made it out of the house safely, but all of the dogs and cats inside as well as a pet parrot perished in the fire.
Banjo’s only saving grace was that he and two other dogs were tied outside at the time. Safe in the backyard, they watched as their home burned to ashes, but at least they had their human family.. or so they thought. When their family looked for a new home for themselves and finally found an apartment, the dogs soon found themselves left at the Trumbull County Dog Pound.
When we read Banjo’s story, there was no way we could turn him away. The very next day, Banjo was on his way to true safety at New Lease on Life.
Since then, Banjo has proven just how wonderful of a dog he is. When he first arrived, he spent a couple of days in the cat room, and he did great. He and the cats had a good time together. Now in the dog room, Banjo has become one of the pack, blending seamlessly into the group. He’s probably the only Beagle we’ve ever seen who doesn’t bark or howl at the other dogs.
Banjo weighs in at only 26 pounds and is full grown. He seems to be fully housebroken, but as with any dog, he’ll need time to adjust to a new home and family, so he may have some accidents in the beginning as he gets used to your family’s routine.
You can meet Banjo at the shelter any time during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5 to 8pm, or give us a call at 330–397–8270 to schedule an appt to meet him at another time or on another day. He has already been neutered, heartworm tested (negative) and is on current preventative, fully vaccinated, dewormed and flea treated, so he’s ready to go home with you right away.
