About Malachi

Adoption Fee: $120
Beagle mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Hi! My name is Malachi, but my foster mom has been calling me Charlie and I seem to like that name. I'm about 4 1/2 years old and I weigh about 35 lbs. I spent my first four years tied to a box. I was often neglected and had fly bites all over my ears. Last July, I was rescued from that life and brought to the pound. On Dec. 12, I began staying at the home of one of the pound volunteers. I instantly liked my two foster beagle sisters. I haven't liked every dog I have met, so please bring any potential canine siblings to meet me. I am a very smart boy. From the start, I would stop doing anything when I heard my foster mom say 'no' or a sharp 'uh-uh'. I now know many other commands too. In less than two weeks I learned that I am to do my business 'outside' and started to go to the door when I had 'to go'. Please be patient with me though, as all of this waiting until you can let me out is still new to me. For the most part, I am content to stay in my crate all night and other times when my foster mom cannot monitor me for my training. I enjoy wrestling and playing tug and 'keep away' with my feisty little beagle sister. I also LOVE to chew rawhides. I have a nice bark but mostly only use it when I hear a strange or loud noise outside. For the first three weeks in my foster home, I was very active because my new freedom was so exciting. Now I am settling down and am content to take long naps in my doggie bed. I have had no interest in trying to get up on couches, chairs, or human beds. I have been learning proper kitchen behavior even though my nose works really well! I also LOVE people and will sometimes grab your leg and give it a hug or lean against you when you are sitting. I like to know where 'my people' are, but I am not super clingy or anxious. Please consider meeting me soon! Our adoption fee is $120.00. The adoption fee must be paid in CASH. We are unable to accept personal checks or credit/debit cards for adoption fees. ALL dogs/puppies adopted from our shelter will receive their parvo distemper vaccine, bordetella vaccine, rabies vaccine (if aged at 12 weeks or older), be dewormed with a 3 day course of panacur dewormer, be microchipped, receive their current Ohio dog license and will be spayed or neutered. ALL DOGS/PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED unless a health issue prohibits the surgery from being performed. Not all dogs posted for adoption are spayed/ neutered yet. If you're driving a long distance to adopt, please verify that the vetting process has been completed and dog you're interested in adopting is still available for adoption. The above mentioned vetting is all included in your adoption fee. The adoption fee and what is included in the adoption fee is NON-NEGOTIABLE. Adoptions MUST be done at the pound and in person as there is paperwork to fill out and an adoption contract that must be signed by the adopter. This means you must be willing to travel to our shelter to adopt. IF the dog you're interested in adopting has medical conditions or injuries which require medical treatment, we ask that you help with the medical bills so we can continue to help the dogs coming in who need additional vet care. We are a county run shelter, therefore we cannot control our intake or the health or behavior of the dogs that come in to our shelter. Although we try our hardest to place all of our adoptable dogs, there are certain circumstances in which any dog in our care could be euthanized at any time and without further notice (IE: sudden untreatable medical condition or injury, temperament or behavioral problems which may not be apparent when the dog first arrives, lack or space, etc.), therefore all dogs at our shelter should be considered urgent. The adoption of a more highly adoptable dog will mean more time for the less adoptable dog in the kennel next to him! Shelter hours are: Monday-Friday: 8 am- 4 pm Saturday: 9 am- 12 pm. The pound is CLOSED to the public on Sunday. There is nobody in the office on Saturday and Sunday, so therefore we are unable to answer or return phone calls over the weekend. Can't adopt a dog? We would love to have more volunteers who are able to spend time with our dogs! The dogs LOVE going for walks and the socialization and exercise helps make the dogs more adoptable.
