Dogs of the Week

Brian is a 1-year-old Jack Russel and wire hair terrier mix. He is friendly with children and people. Dog shelter employees say he is a “lap dog” and likes plenty of belly rubs. He is noted to have high energy at times. A donated spade and neuter voucher is available for those that wish to adopt him. He also comes with his own pillow and a few toys.

Here are a pair of Jack Russell and poodle mix pups. They are eight weeks old. Of the four original, there are two left, a male and female. They have both had their shots, are wormed and would make loving companions for any family willing to take on the responsibility of young puppies waiting to be influenced.

Here are a trio of Blue Heeler, Australian shepherd and Border Collie mix pups. Laurie Castillo, Gallia County dog warden, notes the pups come from strong herding stock. These three are three months old and “fairly-laid back.” All three have been wormed and had their shots.

Here are a pair of Jack Russell and Mountain Feist mix pups at roughly 5 months old. They have both received their shots and taken worm medication. The black pup is male and the tan is female. The Gallia County dog warden notes the pair would likely not make good apartment pets and could potentially be trained for use as hunting companions. They are high-energy dogs.

The Gallia County K-9 Shelter recently hosted an adoption event Saturday at Rural King in Gallipolis. Similar events are anticipated to be held in the future.
