After four years, a seemingly forgotten dog has spent the majority of his life homeless at a rural Ohio animal shelter. The now six-year-old dog, Kelso, has spent the bulk of his life at the Pickaway County Animal Shelter.

Recently, an advocate, hoping to see this longtime shelter resident adopted to a loving family, created a Facebook post with photos and additional information about Kelso:

He is about 6 years old and has tons of pent up energy as you can imagine having spent almost his whole life at the shelter. He is a big boy and would definitely benefit from some training, a good harness to help with control, and probably a fenced in yard.

Kelso can be “choosy” with his canine friends, so he requires a meet and greet before adoption, and may be best suited to being the only dog in the home.
