Story
Mercedes was adopted from us 5-1/2 yrs ago but recently returned due to high separation anxiety. She is approximately 7 yrs old and is a Mastiff/Boxer mix. She lived with another large dog and did ok.....but is not good with small dogs. She was recently surrendered back to us, primarily due to her high separation anxiety---she does NOT like to be left alone. She is medicated to help with the issue. Mercedes loves to go for walks and be near and with her people. She would do best in a home where she is either the center of attention and/or her owner is home a lot. 8/1/2023---Mercedes is now enrolled in our prison training program.  Anyone interested in her must contact us via email to set up a time to meet her.  She is not at the shelter.....all meetings will occur at the prison once an appointment is scheduled.   Morrow County Dog Shelter, Mt.

Story
Domino is a 4 yr old mixed breed.  He has some traits/characteristics as well as looks of Boxer, Hound and Rottweiler.  He is around 56 lbs, playful, confident and is a dominant male so he MUST meet any new housemates before adoption will be approved.  Our suggestion would be a female dog as a companion however he could do fine alone as well. It si unknown how he is with cats and children. He is scheduled to be neutered on 12/6/2022. Here is a link to his TikTok video: https://www.tiktok.com/@caninemoon/video/7163805181610675499?is_copy_url=1&is_from_webapp=v1   Anyone interested in him can meet him at the shelter and complete an application if you want to be considered.

Brooklyn is approximately 4 yrs old.  She can be shy with new people at first but if given time she warms up and enjoys attention. We are unaware of how she is with kids and cats.  She should meet any new dog before adoption is approved and a decision is made. She does have accidents in her kennel so she may need housetrained.  She does know some commands and will work for food. Here is a link to a TikTok video of her: https://www.tiktok.com/@caninemoon/video/7197577053695249706?lang=en Anyone interested in her must meet her and complete an application, in person, before a decision will be made for her adopter.

Story
Bo will need a home that is super patient and willing to give him time to decompress.  You will also have to come to the shelter more than once to visit with him. He is fine with our staff but takes time to warm up to ALL new people.  He reacts ok to some dogs but MUST meet and new housemates.  He was in a home prior to coming here, for a short time, and they said he would growl at their children from time to time (which is why they brought him to us).  So we suggest NO children.   Anyone interested in meeting him MUST come to the shelter and complete an application if you decide you would like to be considered.   ***better photos will be posted soon Morrow County Dog Shelter, Mt.

Story
Meadow was with the original owner since she was a puppy. Domestic issues meant they had to give him up to the Humane Society in the fall of 2022. The dogs had been starved of attention for several months as well as had inconsistent feeding. They'd also been left alone for extended periods of time. Because of that, we recommend that she not be in a home with small children that may disturb her when eating or try to take things away from her. Despite his last few months at home, since she's been with the Humane Society, she's shown that she's smart, great with other dogs, is okay with cats (but will chase them), receives correction well, and keeps a clean crate. She is good on a leash and will go to the bathroom in a fenced in area or on a leash. She does fear things being taken away from her and will need an experienced adopter to avoid issues. She's a counter surfer and has mild separation anxiety (will jump fences to get to her person). She can be fearful until she gets to know you. Unless you're a man - that will take a little longer! Meadow is an incredible dog with a ton of potential with someone that is willing to work with her and get to know her well. She would make an incredible companion.
