FOUND DOG!! Help us find her owner!! **UPDATED!!**

**UPDATED 10/15/11** This lucky dog's owners called the Miami County Animal Shelter last night & left a message on the answering machine.  This morning, MCAS called the owners back and gave them the phone number of the man who found the dog & kept her safe overnight.  As of around 8:30 this morning, her owners were en route to pick her up!  I'm so glad this sweetheart got the happy reunion she deserved!!

FOUND DOG! A friend of a friend found this black lab found on Rt. 55 near Troy, OH tonight- please check with anyone you know who owns a lab! Female, pink collar with white polkadots, approximately 3 years old. VERY friendly and gets along with other dogs - the person who found her can't keep her and is taking her to Miami Co. shelter tomorrow. If you know her owner, or can temporarily foster her until we've tried to find her owner, contact me ASAP! And please share with anyone who might know the pup or be able to help! Thanks!

Missy and Brody Need Foster or Forever Homes NOW!

Today at the adopt-a-thon at SuperPetz, I met two great dogs from the Shelby County Animal Shelter who are in DESPERATE need of foster or forever homes!  They are considered "URGENT" because they've been there the longest, so they need someone to save them! 
If you'd like to foster or adopt one of these sweethearts, please contact the Shelby County Animal Shelter at (937) 498-7201 or

First up is Missy!

She's a 6 or 7-month-old Australian Shepherd/Hound mix who was turned into the shelter by her owners.  They were older an unable to train her or pay to put her through obedience school, so they relinquished her to the shelter.  They'd had her since she was a puppy - she's sad they didn't realize she'd need a little guidance!

She LOVES life and is high energy, she just needs someone with patience who could give her a chance!  She definitely loves people - whenever someone comes up to say hi to her, her entire body wags!  :)

She's definitely still at a trainable age, and she LOVES treats!  (She's biting a Milkbone in half here!) 

"That Milkbone was delicious, may I have another?"

(This picture cracks me up!  She was really interested in my camera!)  Missy is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs!  She was having a great time at the adopt-a-thon playing with another Shelby County Shelter dog - May, who's currently in foster care.

Missy is good on a leash, and likes to get and give hugs and kisses!  If you'd like to give this sweet girl the home she deserves, please call the shelter as soon as possible!

Also in need of a foster or forever home is Brody!

He's a 1 or 2-year-old Collie/Chow mix who shouldn't get much bigger than he is now!

He's very smart, has a calm temperment, and he LOVES affection - he's a hugger!  :)  Here he is, giving me a hug:

Brody seems to get along well with other dogs, is good on a leash, and can sit when told - so he's definitely still at a trainable age!

Brody would happily hang around you all day if you would let him!

Both of these sweethearts need homes as soon as possible - please call the Shelby County Animal Shelter at (937) 498-7201 if you're interested in adopting!
