Athens County Dog Shelter
Chauncey, OH

Ben is sweet, loveable, cuddly, adorable, charming, delightful, captivating, friendly, and so much more. He’s a big guy with an amazing temperament. Ben loves the ladies and puts up with most of the men in dog world. With humans, he loves everyone. When you meet him, expect big kisses and even bigger hugs. Since Ben has been fitted with a harness, he is easier to handle on a leash.  He also seems as though he has had some prior training.  He will come when told, sit when told and stay sometimes.  He’s the type of dog that needs a minute to calm before interacting.  He has so much love in his heart, it’s hard for him to contain it.  He just wants to express himself!  Ben has been in the shelter over a month, but he still prefers to potty outside and he stays relatively calm when in his kennel.  He would be a great dog for a family that has either a big yard , or is very active.  Ben has been neutered, heartworm tested and rabies vaccinated.

Big Ben was found on St. Rt. 550 near Amesville.  He is a large dog that is thought to be around 2 years old.
