ZANESVILLE, Ohio – A terrier mix named Knox was welcomed into the Muskingum County Dog Warden and Adoption Center and is in need of a new home.

Knox was surrendered into the adoption center after his previous family lost their house in a fire. Now Deputy Dog Warden Brittany Calihan is speaking on the behalf of him to find a welcoming family.

“Knox loves the play area that is one thing we know for sure,” Calihan acknowledged. “He gets in the play area and he just runs, plays, and he loves the toys. He doesn’t like when he has to come back in, but he doesn’t fight you or anything. That’s his area.”

Knox knows the commands for sit, lay down, and Calihan is confident he can learn other commands.

“He’s real goofy, he’s real ornery,” Calihan said. “I don’t know if he sits and shakes, but he seems like a really smart dog. So anyone who gets him can definitely can train him with some new tricks.”

Knox is dog selective so families who have other dogs and are interested in adopting will need to bring their current dogs in to meet and test with Knox.

Knox is up to date on shots, has been neutered, and his adoption fee is $105. If interested in Knox or any of the other dogs call the Muskingum County Dog Warden and Adoption Center at (740) 453-0273.
