Welcome Home Wednesday: The Fabulous Four!

Clocktwise Hera, Bruno, Billy and Scrappy Clocktwise Hera, Bruno, Billy and Scrappy Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter

The Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter is FULL!! There’s no vacancy at the canine inn, so, we are re-featuring the 4 remaining pups who still have not found their forever homes! Hera, a lovely lady with floppy ears and expressive eyes, Bruno, a Miracle K9 graduate, Billy a gentle golden bachelor hound mix and Scrappy a sweet Sharpei mix!! When the shelter is at capacity, it's through foster homes they are able to continue to help abandoned, sick and homeless dogs. If you’ve ever thought about fostering, now is the perfect time to take the plunge! 



Hera is a lovely silver lady with expressive eyes that will melt your heart - a 7 year old super sweet terrier pittie mix, who has been at the shelter since March - her foster family says she’s the kind of well behaved guest you want to stay! Zero accidents, and she even puts herself to bed. She also has great leash skills that she loves to show off! Hera is a people pup - just like a people person, but so much better, so she’ll make a great only copilot. The folks at the shelter can't believe this super good girl still hasn't found her forever home!

Bruno No Border


Bruno is a fun, energetic 1 1/2 year old Brindle and tan pittie mix who's bee at the shelter since January - which means he’s spent nearly 1/2 of his life in a shelter, The folks at the shelter hooked him up with Miracle K9 training for 30 days and he came back with leash manners and knows all kinds of commands. Bruno is very smart!! But don't worry, his new family will get his training info plus follow up visits with Miracle K9 (so they can be doggone smart too)! Bruno would make a great jogging/hiking buddy. He loves the water, his toys and could become quite the rally or agility pup. Bruno does like playing with other dogs, but will probably be happiest as an only copilot. He also likes kids, but they recommend his new family have kids 14 and older.

Billy 2

Billy is 9 year old handsome hound mix. This golden bachelor enjoys chill walks and afternoon naps. Always happy to see the shelter staff​ and ready​ to show it with kisses. Billy is a gentleman with a heart of pure gold and he does well with other calm, respectful pups. As great as the staff is at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter, a shelter is no place for a senior​, and there are so many advantages to adopting a senior dog! They're usually already trained, and still easily learn a new schedule (the old adage of "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" is total bs - whoever said that didn't understand dogs at ALL). Seniors are also already calm and happy to just chill at your side most of the time. The best part is giving a dog who has given his or her best years only to find themselves alone in a shelter the retirement that is worthy of the love, loyalty and acceptance they gave and are still ready and willing to give.


Scrappy is a one and a half year old tan Sharpei mix, who has spent much of his young life in a shelter, so he’s been hooked up with a foster home so he’s ready for his new family with fresh home training!! According to his fosters, Scrappy​ has learned a couple of basics quickly, gets along with his furry foster siblings and gets a gold star for being accident free! He is a little shy when you first meet him, but with a little time, he’ll be your bestie for life! Scrappy also loves toys and is a de-fluff enthusiast! 

You can meet any one (or all) of the Fabulous Four, as well as plenty of potential copilots at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter and of course Foster Homes are always needed, especially now!! You can also help the shelter through donations, supplies or volunteering. Consider a Cage Sponsorship or contributing to their Medical Relief Fund. Every little bit helps!
