Hi there. My name is Angel (left). I am about 11 months old and I weigh about 40 lbs.
I was originally brought in to the pound as a stray from the Lisbon area. I was adopted shortly after, but returned because I didn't really "click" with my whole family. I was fearful of her (older) son. I was also the same with the older son who came home from College. She said I was the greatest dog aside from not being very personable with the sons. She said that I was completely house trained, that I loved sleeping in bed and that I loved her period.
I am just very standoffish around new men at first. I just need time to warm up to everyone. It does take me a little longer to make up to men, but I really am a nice girl once I do. I absolutely love the guy who works here at the pound. I cuddle with him and go up to him for attention and everything!
So then I was adopted again... They had me for a couple of weeks, but I didn't really "work out" there either and was returned again.
So what I need is a family who will have some patience with me. A family who will train and socialize me with people. I love to go for car rides, so I could even go to Tractor Supply or the park a couple of times a week to mix and mingle with new people to help me learn that nobody is "out to get me" so to speak.
I am a very sweet girl here at the pound!! I like hanging out in the office. I love just lounging around on chairs. Preferably chairs with people in them. I like to get behind the girls here at the pound in the office chairs and sleep while they're working. Warm and comfy! I also like being in the office because I LOVE other dogs. I like to run around and have a friend to play with!! So, if you have another dog, that'd be fabulous 'cause I love 'em!!
If you're looking for a great dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me!! Next is my friend Nyla with her story!!
Hi there. My name is Nyla (right). I am 1 yr 4 mo old and I weigh 56 lbs.
I was found as a stray originally. I am a very high energy girl and I need lots of exercise and proper training. I have been adopted twice now and sadly for me, I was returned both times because I am high energy, I didn'??t get enough exercise and with not having any structured training I became too much for my other families to handle.
One of my favorite people in the whole world and a volunteer here at the pound took me to be evaluated by a professional trainer (who will give my new family a 10% discount on my training if I go t him!). He said I am highly trainable and a very eager to please girl. He said my only issue has been that nobody has taken the time and effort to give me the proper structured training, positive reinforcements rather than punishment and not being rewarded in any way for behavior (such as jumping up) that I shouldn'??t be doing. After just an hour with the trainer, I came back to the shelter as a better mannered, more well behaved, more confident dog.
I really am a wonderful dog. I love people. I get along great with other dogs, so a playmate in my new home would be awesome, but I would also be perfectly fine in a home without another dog.
I am really, really hoping to be able to find the right home soon. I am so sad sitting here in the pound day after day. I watch people walk though and pick out their new dog and watch the other dogs find great homes, but not me. When will I get to find my new home and my new family who will spend the time with me that I need and will love me absolutely unconditionally the way I love them? Today? Tomorrow? Next week? Next month? Please don't make me wait that long!! Please consider adopting me. I miss having a family terribly!

Please tell people that you know that when they've lost a dog to check our site! Pictures are posted as soon as possible under the "Click here to see our adoptable dogs list". According to Ohio Revised Code, the dog pound must observe this stray hold in order to give the owner a chance to locate their dog. We ARE NOT able to adopt any dog early! After this hold period, the dogs may be adopted to new homes. PS-an ad in the newspaper may also help. Some people are reluctant to surrender a stray that they find to the dog pound. If they see an ad or a flyer, they are able to contact you. Also check our facebook page and post a picture of your missing dog! http://www.facebook.com/columbianacountydogpound
Who We Are
We are an animal control facility. We are a rural county with a very common overpopulation problem. In 2004 our commissioners and Angels for Animals entered into a contract that makes spay/neutering dogs from the pound manditory in an attempt to educate and provide pets at a reasonable cost. This program and the Petfinder's site have resulted in a successful adoption program. We still average more dogs than pens each week, but we are finding some terrific homes and meeting some incredible people!
We use Patented Kuranda Dog Beds because they are durable, chew proof and easy to clean. We now have beds for 23 of our 28 pens. If you would like to donate a bed to us, click here.
Adopting a Dog
If you find a dog that you are interested in adopting, please call the dog pound at 330-424-6663 ext. 1757 or email. We will be happy to explain our simple adoption procedure and tell you what we can about the dogs. All dogs are spayed/neutered and given a rabies and a 7 way vaccination before leaving. Trips for vet work are scheduled each Wednesday and Friday morning and you can pick up your new pet between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm the same day. THE ADOPTION FEE IS $110.00 (CASH!!) PER DOG. EFFECTIVE APRIL 1, 2009. This includes an Ohio dog license. There are additional services offered upon request such as heartworm test, flea and tick prevention, bordatella vaccination, ect. Payment must be received before the dog can be scheduled for additional vet work. Often this means overnight a Money Order or Cashier's check if you are not close enough to the pound to stop in or you may stop in and pay with CASH.
