Dog of the Week

Local News Stories

MUSKINGUM COUNTY, Ohio-Have you ever dreamed of visiting the Northeastern United States? If so the Muskingum county Dog Warden and Adoption Center has the perfect dog for you. 

This week’s dog of the week is Boston. Boston is an energetic older dog that would make  a perfect companion for homebodies. 

“Boston is a senior. He’s estimated to be about nine years old. He is a sweet boy. He would do great in a home with somebody who can be home all the time with him and can give him all the attention and love he needs. He’s actually one of my favorites,” Deputy Dog Warden Alisha Myers said.

The adoption process has remained the same since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Mike DeWine has also issued emergency orders on dog licenses due to the pandemic. 

“Call in, set up an appointment. Due to the pandemic it’s making it a little bit harder on us. We need to make sure that we have enough people there to help take care of the person when they come in to check out a dog. Governor DeWine did sign an emergency legislation saying that dog licenses are extended to July 1st instead of January 31st. So you can still come out to our office to get your dog license for ten dollars instead of twenty,” Myers continued.

More information on adoptions and dog licenses can be found by calling the adoption center.
