Notes: Vicki is estimated to be 8-10 years old. She came in as a stray from Symmes Valley area. She is a magnet to all humans. Super calm and sweet, low energy. She is hesitant with new dogs but with a slow controlled introduction we have no doubt she could fit right in. She is super easy on the leash and a couch potato. She is super friendly, loves kids and interacts well with dogs and cats. She can be submissive and shy to new dogs so would recommend slow introductions. She did very well riding in the car, however was not very familiar with it. Vicki is a “senior” dog so she will have a Senior adoption fee of $25


If you are interested in Vicki phone 740-533-1736 for an appointment or stop by to meet her at Lawrence County Ohio Animal Shelter. We are open Monday-Friday 10am - 4pm, Closed Saturday, Sunday and Holidays.

One by one, they pass by my cage
Too old, too worn, too broken, they say
Way past his time, he can’t run and play
They shake their heads and go on their way
A little old man, arthritic and sore
It seems that I am wanted no more
I once had a home, I once had a bed
A place that was warm, and where I was fed
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn’t belong
I got in their way, my attitude wrong
Now I sit in this kennel, where day after day
The younger ones are chosen and taken away
When I had come to the end of my rope
You saw my face and again I knew hope
You saw past the grey, the legs wobbly with age
And felt I deserved life beyond this cage
You took me home, gave me food and a bed
You gently stroked my poor tired head
We snuggle and play, you talk to me low
You love me so dearly, and make sure I know
Although I have lived most of my life with another
You outshine them with a love so much stronger
I promise to return all the love I can give
To you my dear friend, as long as I live
I may be with you for a week, or for years
We will share many smiles, and a few tears
When the time comes, that God deems I must leave
I know you will cry and your heart it will grieve
When I arrive at the Bridge all brand new
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you
And I will brag to all who will hear
Of the person who made my last days so dear.
