Story
My family and I adopted Max in 2019, and he was an instantly adored member of the family. He has an amazing personality, likes to howl gently to communicate, loves new people, animals, and activities, and playing tug and fetch. But Max's defining quality is how incredibly sweet and loving he is! Max does have separation anxiety when he's left alone or doesn't have anyone around. He is able to be crated with a dose of Trazadone before he's left alone, and he's working on getting accustomed to his new thunder sweater. Max needs a home where he can get all the attention he needs. He loves children and would do best with a young family, with or without other animals!

Story
Neptune is a magnificent 3-year old male American Staffordshire Terrier who was surrendered by his owner on April 24, 2024. Neptune may look familiar to some of our volunteers and Facebook fans since Neptune was originally bought to the HSOV on December 14, 2023 after he was found on State Route 7 in the Marietta/Reno Ohio area. Neptune was not wearing a collar, but a microchip was detected. Our shelter staff attempted to locate his owner through the microchip data but was unable to do so since the individual to whom the microchip was registered had re-homed Neptune to a 'friend-of-a-friend' and no longer had any contact information (sigh). This handsome guy has a sleek chocolate brown-and-white coat, white markings on his legs/paws, a long tail with a white tip on the end, and a beautiful symmetrically-marked face with dark brown eyes, a chocolate nose on his pink/white muzzle, and cute 'cartoon ears'. You cannot look at Neptune's mischievous-looking face without smiling. Neptune has a playful, fun-loving personality. Thanks to HSOV Kennel Tech Emily Beaver who accompanied Neptune for his outdoor photos on December 16th. Neptune thoroughly enjoyed his '15-minutes of fame' and (like all of the HSOV dogs), he loved Emily. Neptune weighs 62 lbs and is strong on the other end of a leash. In compliance with the Ohio Revised Code, Neptune was held for three days so that his family would have an opportunity to reclaim him with proof of ownership. Since Neptune was not reclaimed, he was neutered on February 15, 2024 and was also given rabies vaccine. We did our usual 'Happy Dance' when Neptune was adopted on March 2, 2024 .. But Neptune's time in his new home was short-lived since he was returned to HSOV on April 24, 2024. It seems that Neptune was jumping the fence in his new home and making un-wanted social visits with his neighbors' dogs (and was not playing nice) ... So we would suggest Neptune find a home that he would not have to share with other dogs or be allowed to leaving his property unleashed. Neptune is still a happy boy with a very outgoing personality. We have him on our "needs updated photos" list~

Story
Coal is a sweet 5-year old male Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer mix who was brought to the HSOV on May 29, 2024 by a Good Samaritan who found him on State Route 7 in the Marietta Ohio area (near Hensler's Market). Coal was wearing a collar but there was neither an id tag nor a dog tag license on his collar ... And he was not microchipped. Coal has a black short smooth coat with a white bib on his chest, white paws, a short half tail, and an adorable symmetrically-marked face with expressive brown eyes, a blue/charcoal nose on his cute chubby muzzle, and large semi-erect ears. Coal appears to have an affectionate personality. He melted our photographer's heart when he begged for attention with his big brown eyes and gently walked to the gate of his kennel where he was enjoying a little outdoor time in the shade with a cool breeze on the afternoon of May 30th. Coal weighs 48 lbs and is a fairly small dog when you see him in person. He has sparse/thinning hair on his neck/back (most likely due to an allergy). In compliance with the Ohio Revised Code, Coal will be held for three days so that his family will have an opportunity to reclaim him with proof of ownership.

Female, Adult
Columbus, OH
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with kids, Not good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Patches has been like an emotional support dog for us and is a very lovable and calm companion. She loves to be snuggled in some blankets and loves soft things. We got her as a rescue 8 years ago in Philadelphia and she has been all over the US with us. The shelter and vet estimated her birthday as 1.1.2016 and we adopted her 10.5.16. She is great with people of all ages (toddlers/kids/elderly included), but she has only ever gotten along with 1 other dog, after 2 weeks of crating them in the same room and doing walking introductions. She is scared of cats and reactive to them Patches current humans health issues are preventing them from being able to give her the best care. They also need to move at the end of June and cannot take her with them. Patches is a Pitty mix that could live up to another 8 years in a safe and loving home.
