Melissa from Walk Play Stay Unlimited stopped by the Herkimer County Humane Society to meet the dogs up for adoption and fell in love with a 5-month-old mix named Spottie. She says:

Sweetest, submissive puppy we have ever met. Want him to sit in your lap? Excellent! Do you want him to learn obedience? He’s ready! He is a lover and the nicest puppy you could ask for.



Have room for 2 dogs? Winnie looks like she could be Spotties mom and is desperate for a forever home. She's not doing well at the Herkimer County Humane Society. She's very depressed and is constantly in a state of fight or flite, which is not good for her.

Winnie is a 5-year-old mixed breed that loves all people. She's housebroken, good with cats, good on a leash, and great in the car. She is on a low-cost medication for seizures, which she will need for the rest of her life. Winnie needs a family with patience as she is reactive to some dogs if she feels threatened, but it can be fixed, and the volunteers at HCHS are working hard to help her.

Winnie needs to be away from shelter stress with someone who can spend more time helping her. She lived in a home for the past two years, but her owner didn’t know how to help her and probably inadvertently caused the behavior to escalate.

Pablo is still looking for a home. He has been at a shelter for over 1,000 days. That's his entire life!

Herkimer County Humane Society

Pablo is on the smaller side, probably around 45 lbs. He is extremely friendly and loves people. He is good on a leash, although he enjoys chasing squirrels and chipmunks or anything he sees while out on walks. He gets excited because he never had the chance to leave the concrete kennel where he was before  Herkimer County Humane Society. He is starved for attention and does whatever he can to get someone to notice him. Herkimer County Humane Society says:

What Pablo really needs in order to reach his potential, is someone who can expose him to the life he missed growing up locked in a kennel and teach him how a good dog needs to behave. He needs patience and socialization. For the time being, he needs a home without cats or young kids.

If Pablo sounds like the kind of guy you could help, meet him. He would really love to meet you!! The Herkimer County Humane Society is located at 514 State Route 5S Mohawk, New York. (315) 866-3255. He has been altered and is up to date on his shots.
