LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – A group of dogs running wild in the Girard and Liberty area has become an ongoing problem. But a group of animal activists are working to save the animals and get them into loving homes.
Greg Miller has already taken two dogs from the pack. Genevieve and Teddy were running with a pack near the Route 711 Connector. Miller said he began moving food down the hill to a baseball field to get them away from the highway and they followed. He was able to gain the dogs’ trust and rescue them.
Genevieve is staying with Miller until she can go to Close to Home Rescue and Teddy is with No Fear Rescue and waiting to go to his new family next week.
“I pray they all get a great home like Teddy. We couldn’t ask for a better home for him, and he has adapted to every situation that he has been placed in so well,” said Litsa Kargakos with No Fear Rescue.
Mahoning County Dog Warden Dave Nelson said wild dogs can make good pets. He said his office brought in three from the same pack last week.
“Right now we have two that are able to go into a home. One needs a little bit of work,” Nelson said.
There are still two more dogs that need caught from the pack. Nelson said they are tracking the dogs and hope to have them soon.
Nelson said the kennel is full and there are plenty of dogs right now ready to be adopted.
