Animal Shelter Society’s Pet of the Week: Edward!

Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio- Allow me to introduce you to the Animal Shelter Society’s pet of the week: Edward!

He is a 3 month old coonhound/retriever and Labrador mix, and while it may seem contradictory, he is just as timid as he is energetic!

“He has a great personality, he’s very active. He’d be great in a home with children, and a space to run. We want to make sure that he have a fenced-in yard, and he can go on walks. He’s just really super sensitive to people. And that’s what you want in an animal,” April Cohagen-Gibson, general manager of the Animal Shelter Society stated.

He is an all around open-minded dog. Despite being shy, he just has to get comfortable around you before opening up and socializing. This makes him great around children, other dogs, and other pets. He doesn’t mind being transported either.

“He doesn’t have any problems riding in vehicles, we’ve taken to do some other events, and we’ve had some applications on him for folks. We want to make sure that he is able to have an outdoor type of lifestyle,” Cohagen-Gibson said.

If you’re interested in adopting Edward, you can head to the Animal Shelter Society’s website to submit an application online. Like all dogs that leave the shelter he is already neutered and caught up on all his vaccinations.

Gunnar is a recent graduate of Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire having majored in meteorology with minors in mathematics and communications. He was on the varsity track & field team all four of his years at Plymouth competing in the long jump, triple jump, and 100m and 200m races. Growing up in Central Florida, having endured many relentless hurricane seasons and experiencing pop-up thunderstorms everyday during the summer inspired his initial interest in the weather. A lack of cold weather subsequently drove him to attend college in New Hampshire. This was to experience a whole other side of the weather: winter. He is excited to have just moved to Ohio and explore what all the state has to offer. He also hopes that Ohio is a happy middle ground between how hot Florida is and how cold New Hampshire is. In his free time, Gunnar enjoys staying active, going on photography photoshoots, and gardening.
