Gizmo

Gizmo2When Gizmo first arrived at New Lease on Life, he was a bit of a mess.

The people who originally found him on the street didn’t see him as a cute, friendly dog. They saw him as a quick way to make some cash. Even though they didn’t know his background and hadn’t even bothered to groom him, they were trying to sell him as a stud dog.

But thankfully, his bad hairdo worked in his favor. No one wanted to pay for a dog who looked like Cousin It at the time, so they finally gave up and gave him to their neighbor, who happened to be one of our foster moms.

Now, Gizmo is looking good, sporting his new do, and quite proud of it. He was so proud on the grooming table as the last of the scruffy fur came off.

Gizmo is a 1 1/2 year old Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso. He weighs approx 15 pounds. You can meet him at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm.

Pepper 8 MTHS OLD

PepperDogPepper is such a happy boy. And why shouldn’t he be? He was picked up as a stray a week ago and taken to the Trumbull County Dog Pound where he thought his time was up, but instead, he’s now at New Lease on Life and already dreaming of finding a new family of his own!

We believe Pepper is a Boxer/Shiba Inu mix. He’s only 8 months old and already weighs just under 50 pounds, so we’re expecting him to be around 60 pounds full grown.

He loves people and was even running around, playing with the junior volunteers, only minutes after arriving.

You can meet Pepper at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. He has not yet seen the vet, but you’re welcome to meet him and reserve him for your family in the meantime. He is expected to be ready to go home in about a week.

Sonar

Sonar

Some of you might remember this face. Sonar was one of the first of the Coonhound group to be adopted a few months ago, but sadly, she was returned to the shelter yesterday.

Sonar and 19 of her close and far family members were rescued back in May from a hoarder who had around 60 dogs in her home and was about to be raided by police. With the help of our volunteers, we were able to get 20 dogs to safety, and we had thought the last of them was adopted when Zeus left a few weeks ago.

But late last week, we received an unexpected phone call from Sonar’s adopters saying it wasn’t working out. Their other dog, who was much larger, wanted no part of this rambunctious girl who kept jumping and chewing on him. Fearing someone would get hurt when he finally tired of her antics and retaliated, her adopters decided to return her to the shelter.

Now she’s waiting and hoping for another chance.

Sonar is an 11-month-old Black/Tan Coonhound. She is fully housebroken and knows her basic commands as well as how to “shake paw.”

She loved hanging out with the junior volunteers yesterday evening. Of course it didn’t hurt that they were pretty liberal with the treats, which everyone enjoyed.

You can meet Sonar at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. She can be reserved now, and once the vet gets a chance to check her over in a couple days, she will be ready to go home.

Speckles

Speckles2A microchip is usually the key to getting back home…… but it only works if there’s a home to go back to.

When Speckles showed up as a stray at the Trumbull County Dog Pound and that magical microchip number popped up on the scanner, everyone was thrilled. But when they called the number listed on the registration, the excitement quickly died. Her original owner who had microchipped her didn’t want her back. She had given her away and didn’t even know who she had given this sweet girl to. All she had was some vague information about his job.

The pound tried in vain to hunt down this mysterious new owner, but none of their calls were returned, and no one reported Speckles missing, so they finally had to give up.

Now Speckles is left without a home and wondering why.

We believe Speckles is a 2-year-old English Pointer/Lab mix. She weighs in at 50 pounds full grown. You can meet her at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. She can be reserved now and will be ready to go home in about a week after her spay.

Holly & Jolly

Holly_JollyHere’s an unusual mix for you……. Holly and Jolly are Beagle/Huskies! Their mother is only about 20 pounds, but daddy was much, much larger (thank goodness she only had two!), and the pups at only 8 weeks old are almost as big as their poor mom already.

But boy are they adorable. They have the look and markings of a Beagle but the plush double coat of a Husky. So cute!

You can meet the girls, and their mom, at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. They can be reserved for adoption now and will be ready to go home with you in just a few days.

Ollie

Ollie5Ollie is such a sweet guy. Everyone loves him. He’s so sweet that he gets to wander the Adoption Center all day long to greet customers and do whatever he pleases.

He especially likes his freedom because it lets him pretend to be a vacuum and grab any stray treats or food that fall out of the cages….. and mooch extra treats off of visitors of course.

Ollie arrived at the shelter a few weeks ago after his original owners decided to move without making a plan for him. He’s a 7-year-old Cocker Spaniel, and he’s looking so cute with his new haircut.

You can meet Ollie at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. He has already had all of his healthcare completed, so he’s ready to join your family right away. He gets along great with other dogs, cats and kids! Due to his age, Ollie’s adoption fee is only $100 to an approved family.

Robin

RobinRobin wanted only one thing in life when she found herself at the Trumbull County Dog Pound after being ripped away from her puppies…… a real home of her own. And she had one, but only for a short time.

Her former owners loved her. They gave her plenty of attention and taught her tricks, but their other dog wasn’t nearly as happy about the idea of sharing his space. He wanted this interloper out, and he wanted her out now.

Her family tried to make it work for four months, but he wasn’t having it. At every opportunity, he would snap at Robin, and her owners feared for her safety, so they finally brought her here to New Lease on Life.

Now Robin is on the hunt for a new family who will keep her forever, so she never has to want again.

Robin is believed to be a Feist mix. She’s already full grown at 28 pounds and two years old. She is full housebroken, and she knows her basic commands as well as Shake Paw and Give Kisses. She gets along great with other dogs who like her, cats and kids.

You can meet Robin at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. She has already completed her healthcare, so she is ready to join your family.
