Meet Sheldon (Neutered) (Photos 11/22/2022)

Sheldon is a handsome 3-1/2 year old male Chocolate Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier mix who was brought to the HSOV on November 22, 2022 by the Washington County Ohio Dog Warden who picked him up on State Route 555 in the Cutler Ohio area. Sheldon was wearing an orange/silver reflective collar but there was neither an id tag nor a dog tag on his collar .. And he was not microchipped.

Sheldon has a chocolate brown short smooth coat with a white bib on his neck/chest, a long tail, and an adorable face with expressive brown eyes, a milk chocolate nose, and short floppy ears .

Sheldon has a friendly, easygoing personality and enjoyed his 15-minutes of fame when HSOV Humane Officer Fredley Tynan spent time with him for his outdoor photo session. There was an after-hours dog walk in progress, and Sheldon was very curious about other dogs that he saw being walked in the distant and seemed to want to make their acquaintance. He also 'perked up' when he saw cars being driven into the parking lot as though he expected his owner to coming to look for him.

Sheldon appears to be housetrained.

Sheldon weighs 59.4 lbs and walks fairly well on a leash. He has a slim trim physique and could easily carry a few more pounds.

In compliance with the Ohio Revised Code, Sheldon was held for three days so that his family would have an opportunity to reclaim him with proof of ownership.

Since Sheldon was not reclaimed, he was neutered on January 11, 2023 and was also given rabies vaccine.

Sheldon was adopted on March 25, 2023 but was returned a week or so later because he was nervous around babies (and perhaps with toddlers/small children) and shows his fear by growling, so we recommend that Sheldon be placed in a home with adults or older children. He is truly a fantastic lovable dog who will be a terrific companion with his new family.

We've also learned that Sheldon does NOT do well with cats, so he should not be placed in a home where he would have contact with them.

Sheldon appears to do ok with most other dogs.
