Spring is here, and shelters are filling up!

Hi everyone!  Today I received an e-mail letting me know that the Shelby County and Clark County animal shelters are nearing full capacity - with spring here, dogs are out running and are being brought in as strays, then not being reclaimed.  Please visit the shelter sites (in the link section on the right hand side of this page) and see if any pups catch your eye!  Be sure to check often, too - sometimes it takes a day or two for a dog's profile to be posted online!

Our first dog today is Marley, a 1-year-old Collie/Lab mix at the Darke County Animal Shelter.  He is current on his shots & is good with kids.  He's very friendly and is looking for a good home - if you think your home would be a good fit for him, call the shelter at (937) 547-1645!

Next up is a dog who appears to be Marley's brother - meet Harley, another 1-year-old Collie/Lab mix who is also good with kids & current on his shots.  He, too, is very friendly and needs a great forever home - if you'd like to adopt him, call the Darke County Animal Shelter at (937) 547-1645!

In keeping with Darke County's brotherly theme, here are Tony & Randy, two dogs whose breed I'm not sure of.  On Petfinder they're listed as Italian Greyhounds, but in their profile it shows them to be Miniature Pinschers.  Whatever they are, they sure are cute, and look like they just need a nice couch to curl up on!  The shelter staff says they are friendly little guys and they weigh about 10 pounds each.  If you'd like to give this adorable duo a great home, call (937) 547-1645!

Our first Miami County dog of the day is Buster, a 2-1/2 year old Lab mix who was released by his owners due to that infuriating excuse: "They didn't have time for him."  He is already neutered and is housebroken.  The shelter staff says he's very energetic and that he just needs to learn a few manners - but he'd be a great pet!  If you'd like to help Buster learn manners, call (937) 332-6919 and tell them you want to adopt him!

Next up is Magnum, a 7 or 8-year-old Black Lab.  He came in to the Miami County Animal Shelter as a stray, and hasn't been reclaimed.  The shelter staff says he's a very sweet and gentle big boy, and that even though he's a little older, he's got lots of love left to give!  If you'd like to save Magnum from Black Dog Syndrome (i.e. big, black, male dogs tend to be the last adopted), call (937) 332-6919!

Here's another pup named Marley - but this one's a girl!  She's a Chocolate Lab mix who is about two years old and was brought in to Miami County Animal Shelter as a stray.  The shelter staff says she's very friendly and playful--just look at that gorgeous smile!  If you'd like Marley to brighten her day, call (937) 332-6919!

Our last Miami County dog is Shasta, a gorgeous Husky who was brought in as a stray.  The shelter staff says she's very friendly and energetic.  If you'd like to see those sweet baby blues staring up at you in your house every day, call the Miami County Shelter at (937) 332-6919!

As I mentioned earlier, the Shelby County Animal Shelter is getting full!  I have already featured all their listed dogs on this blog - please visit the site so you can see who's still available to add to your family!

Since the e-mail mentioned the Clark County shelter as well, I'm going to feature a few of their dogs here, too!

First up is Millie, a Bichon Frise who looks like she could use a nice lap to curl up on!  She's a little shy at first, but loves to be held!  She's house-trained and crate-trained and ready to come home with you!  If you want to adopt her, call the Clark County Humane Society at (937) 339-2917 x.14!

Next up is Georgia, a Hound/Retriever mix who is a survivor of Jeff Burgess's One More Chance Rescue and Adoption - she was one of 367 dogs rescued during the CCHS/ASPCA raid.  She's a little shy at first, but will walk on a leash and deserves a second chance at a happy life!  If you'd like to adopt Georgia, call the Clark County Humane Society at (937) 339-2917 x. 14!

Next up is Sheila, a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Retriever mix.  The shelter staff says she does great with other dogs and is a lovebug!  If you'd like to give Sheila the love she deserves, call (937) 339-2917 x.14!

Last but not least we have Bruce, a Norwich Terrier mix at the Clark County Humane Society.  The shelter staff says he does great with other dogs, loves to give kisses, and loves to be right with you--they call him an amazing little man!  If you'd like to give this smiling sweetheart a home, call (937) 339-2917 x.14!
