Sasha American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Adult Female - AT SHELTER SINCE 2014!!  Sasha is fully vetted. When Sasha came to the shelter she had no stability and very little training. She has come so far. For the next step in her progress she needs a stable, secure environment with minimal stress. Will YOU be that person that takes Sasha to her next level?? Sasha was 2 years old when she came to the shelter. She's going to be 5 soon. She has too much potential to live another year of life in the concrete confines of the county shelter! Sasha adores people and loves their company. However, few others have the complexity of a Sasha. She has both the intensity of a well trained search dog and is as lovable as the cuddliest lap dog. Her intensity shows in her play and high ball drive. The intensity can be seen in her eyes through her focus and attention. Sasha does well with children, but should be supervised during play because her intensity can become rough.

7. Millfield/Chauncey, OH: URGENT DOGS! EUTH DATE SET!

*******************************************************************************************UPDATE 11/30  HAPPY UPDATE - BOTH DOGS ON TODAY'S EUTH LIST ARE SAFE!!

 Creed  Pit Bull Terrier Medium Young Male RESCUED! 1 to 2 years old. Creed is housebroken and crate-trained, good with men, women and kids. Not good with other dogs. Cats unknown. He will come and sit to his name. This gorgeous, happy, people pleaser is going to be euthanized on November 30th. He is young, healthy and devastatingly ignorant of what the last day of November will bring. Creed is a wiggly, friendly guy that likes to sit on your feet while you give him chest scratches. He loves to look at you upside-down, and leans against anyone petting him just to be close to them. Creed is an extremely handler-centered dog that makes you feel like you are the light of his world.  Like any young, healthy dog, Creed is very trainable. He also has the abundant energy of youth, and being cooped up in a kennel all day does not bode well. Creed has been disadvantaged in that he has had little or no obedience training. We feel Creed would do well placed in a home, or foster, with no children or other animals, at least in the beginning, until he learns to channel his energy into listening and learning. Creed’s savior should be experienced enough to set expectations  of him early. He wants to please, and we feel he wants, and needs, structure and consistency. This is a young dog that has great potential in the right hands.

Hardy Shar Pei/Hound Mix Large Young Male RESCUED!! 1 to 2 years old, 53lbs, Neutered. This is a dog that has probably never known the gentle hand of an adoring owner, a warm bed in the winter, or the comfort of a happy home. He was found in rough condition with patchy fur and areas of thin hair, most likely from previously unchecked fleas.  He has probably spent a good portion of his life alone and fending for himself. He is energetic, but our volunteers have handled him just fine with appropriate head-control type leashes such as a gentle leader. Hardy is somewhat fence reactive to other dogs and displays kennel aggression while inside his kennel, but outside the kennel he is very different.  In a controlled situation with an experienced trainer, he was neutral to other dogs with a slow introduction on leash.  After being outside the shelter for a while Hardy is much more relaxed.  He is friendly to people, likes getting petted and tunes into his handler when given attention. As you can see from his photo, he's got the greatest smile!

Ruby Boxer Mix Large Adult Female -  5 years old. Ruby is an excellent dog! She is very loving and intelligent. She has had house-training and knows several commands, such as sit, lay, stay, paw, and roll over. She was surrendered due to her owner having some life changes. She has not been socialized with other dogs and typically does not get along with them. Therefore, we think Ruby would do best in a home without other pets. We also require her new home to have a fenced in yard. Ruby is  full of love and spunk. She deserves another chance and a FOREVER home.

Sally Domestic Short Hair Gray/Silver Medium Adult Female -  4 years old. Spayed.  Sally  was surrendered because her owner passed away. Sally is a very friendly and lovable cat that used to being with one person and the only pet. Sally would make a great companion pet. She is currently being fostered at The Critter Cradle.
