Happy Tails

2019

Happy Tail 7.19.19

Owner's Name: Robin Laughlin
Pet's Name: Ms. Frizzle
City: Sidney, Ohio

Ms. Frizzle is having a good time going to work with me. She is learning to follow on the leash. Her new friends ReRe and my niece's dog Venkman are keeping her company at work. She is learning her way around and I'm learning that she can go up the sidewalk more easily since I removed some of the plants that were spreading over the sides and leaving only a tiny pathway. I was surprised to find out that she likes crunchy Cheetos. She also enjoys the ice cream from Chilly Jillys. Sometimes she disappears and when I look closer she has covered herself up with the blanket that is on the couch. Sometimes just her head and other times her body is completely covered up. When I first got her she would look for food in the trash can but now she doesn't mess with that anymore.

Happy Tail 7.12.19

Owner's Name: Daniel Dicke
Pet's Name: Lucy Lou Dicke
City: Sidney, Ohio

We had a dog go to heaven and needed a companion for Snoopy the Beagle as he was very sad to be alone. I saw Lulu's picture on the website and just had to go see her. It was definitely love at first sight! That girl wagged her whole body when she saw me. She knew I was the one. That was almost 4 years ago. Lucy has turned into a wonderful family pet. She is very loving and full of energy and personality. A couple years ago we lost Snoopy the Beagle to cancer. Lucy was very sad and lonely so we adopted a female beagle from Auglaize County. Lucy bonded with her immediately and made her feel welcomed and loved. Those 2 are now totally bonded and truly love each other as you can see in the photo. I thank God every day for bringing Lucy Lou into our family. She's the bestest girl!

Happy Tail 7.11.19

Owner's Name: Betsy OLeary
Pet's Name: Buster
City: Sidney, Ohio

My name is Buster. I was adopted from the SCAS in October 2011. I enjoy cozy spots, squeaky toys and barking at critters in the yard. The highlight of my day is letting my humans know that the mail lady delivered their mail. I enjoy playing with my little brother, Ace, but sometimes he’s a little rough. He’s still has a lot of pup in him and is learning his manners. My little sister Sophie rules the house. She’s the smallest of us 3 at only 11lbs but she is fierce! No one, not even my humans, cross her! All 3 of us were adopted from a shelter and now we are living a life of luxury. My only complaint is that there is never enough steak. Ever. Other than that I’m pretty happy.

Happy Tail 7.11.19

Owner's Name: Betsy OLeary
Pet's Name: Ace
City: Sidney, Ohio

Hi my name is Ace! I was adopted from the SCAS in January 2019. I enjoy sleeping with my human brother, my bone and food! The highlight of my day is chasing and treeing squirrels. It is seriously the best thing ever! I am the master of the sad face and it helps me get my way most of the time. I like to play with my older brother, Buster, too. I’m about twice his size and I try to be gentle but sometimes I just get too excited. We’re working on manners and I’m much better about not jumping on people. My humans help me work off my excess energy by playing outside with me. My older sister, Sophie, scares me! She’s little and bossy! She constantly hides the blue bone from me and my brother. She doesn’t want it but she doesn’t want us to have it either. Other than the blue bone incidents, I really like it here! At first I was really anxious and scared to be alone. It took me a few months to get settled but now I realize that this is my forever home and it feels pretty great!

Happy Tail 6.17.19

Owner's Name: Vance & Linda Stewart
Pet's Name: Mia
City: Sidney, Ohio

Our daughter volunteers for SCARF and sent us pictures of some puppies that were at the shelter. We didn’t think we were ready for another dog since we had just lost our beloved Annie about 6 months before. To my surprise, Vance asked to go look at her. He visited with her at the shelter and the rest is history. We are so happy to have found Mia and we want to thank the shelter and SCARF for all that they do. And a big thank you to Chastity Crowder for helping us train her.

Happy Tail 5.24.19

Owner's Name: Susan Magoteaux
Pet's Name: Gracie. Holly at the shelter
City: Greenville, Ohio

We were looking for a new dog after losing our lab. We noticed Gracie with her beautiful brindle coat playing in the yard. It was love at first sight. She has been with us since February 2019 and will always be with us. She is smart, sweet, and very loving. And a bit of a goofball. Gracie still has a few issues but we are working on the rough patches. We can't imagine life without her!

Pet's Name: Maxii

Hello my family adopted Maxii from the local shelter. She is by far the sweetest most protective dog of her family. She knows she's loved by each and everyone of us. It’s almost like we raised her from the young. I have had Maxii since September 2018 and she will be with us for a while. Thanks again for allowing our family to adopt her.

About a month and half ago I adopted Pippa " formally known as Cricket" she is loving but extremely active!!

Happy Tail 5.7.19

Owner's Name: Penny Lucente
Pet's Name: Cody
City: Jackson Center, Ohio

We were devastated when we lost our Petey Bug to CHF. When it was time to adopt we wanted a rescue. The Shelby County Animal Shelter was great in letting me spend time with the dogs because we have to have a hypoallergenic dog. Mertz and his siblings came in and my meeting with Mertz went great. We’ve had him for a week and we are in love and he’s a member of our family. Thank you Shelby County Animal Shelter in all that you do for the lost and abandoned animals. ❤️❤️ And a big thank you for our “Cody”

Happy Tail 3.18.19

Owner's Name: Kristen France
Pet's Name: Dexter
City: Sidney, Ohio

Sadly our fur baby had passed away. We missed her presence so much we decided to check the pound for a small female dog. The first time we visited the pound there was a huge fluffy dog running in the fenced area. I went in, bending down seeing the pups and I look over and this huge dog is showing me his teeth! Startled I jump back thinking he's mean. Then I notice his little nub wagging. OMG, he's smiling! So each week I visit the pound big silly smiley finds me. I tell my husband about him, he says no, we need a small dog because we already have 2 golden retrievers. I convinced him to come with me one Saturday and needless to say the big fluffy smiling dog won him over! Dexter now is a big spoiled baby who plays ball, goes on walks and plays outside with his sister's. Australian Shepherds are working dogs. So he finds his purpose running traps with my son, watching the back door and barking at any noise and making his rounds at night. Checking on his sleeping family. Dexter fits in perfectly!

Owner's Name: Hiliary & Josh Preston
Pet's Name: Pumpkin Spice Preston
City: Piqua, Ohio

We met Pumpkin at the animal shelter in Sidney and immediately fell in love with her golden eyes and fluffy tail. She is rotten but we love her! She gets into everything but she is adorable and knows how to get out of it by loving on you. Here is our fur baby...

Happy Tail 1.28.19

Owner's Name: Susan Magoteaux
Pet's Name: Gracie (now), Holly (at shelter)
City: Greenville, Ohio

We lost our 14 yr old lab 8 weeks ago. I was having trouble adjusting to the dog less life, so I began looking. I saw an older lab that I wanted to meet, however when we pulled up Holly was in the yard playing and I fell in love. I picked this beautiful sweet baby up today. This picture was taken about an hour after we got home. Gracie is making herself at home!

Happy Tail 1.28.19

Owner's Name: Mary & Ed Gearhart
Pet's Name: Noel
City: Sidney, Ohio

Noel, an Australian shepherd, found on Christmas, came to us ten days later from SCARF as an answer to our plea to Gay Smith for a dog. We had rescued a Golden Retriever pup when we lived at Lake Milton. Honey was good for me (Mary) and my two cats. Ed would not let this grown-up dog move with us because she had knocked me over several times and had not yet learned to get in a car. Gay helped develop a list of characteristics – needed love, not an ankle biter, gentle, good with cats, and so on. Noel answered my plea except in one way. Noel does not yet obey me. Ed thinks Noel needs obedience school; I disagree. We now have three rescued pets. We believe in SCARF.

Owner's Name: Mike and Jayne Olivieri
Pet's Name: Chester and Winnie
City: Sidney, Ohio

We have been so blessed to have rescued 2 very loving animals from the Shelby County Animal Shelter. Thank you so much. Our beagle is Ronin. He didn't come from the shelter but the other 2 did. Winnie is the little black lab pit bull mix. We got her just about 4 years ago. Chester (formerly known as Ghost) came to us just 1-1/2 weeks ago. We love them so much. Thank you for all you continue to do with these animals.

Happy Tail 1.11.19

Owner's Name: Charlie and Jeannie Jaques
Pet's Name: Gracie
City: Sidney, Ohio

We adopted Grace in 2007 after losing our previous Jack Russell. Gracie has this great need to run and has climbed and dug underneath our fenced yard many many times. She is very friendly and has always been returned to us by many caring people.
She is now 12 years old and would still run if she had the chance!
We love Gracie very much and like to call her amazing Grace!
