                       General Sherman Marches Home!



Sometimes the best stories are the shortest.  After more than six months at the Chautauqua County Humane Society, General Sherman has gone home.  This big, loving guy is now enjoying life at home with his new family.  General Sherman went home Saturday afternoon (1/26/19), and as you can see by the follow up photos, provided by Savannah Pollow, he is loving his new life.  If  you are looking for a new four legged family member, you can always find available animals on our adoptable animals page.  You can also support the animals that rely on CCHS with a donation.


Previous General Sherman Story from 1/12/19: 



                                               Meet General Sherman

General Sherman first walked into the Chautauqua County Humane Society's (CCHS) Strunk Road adoption center on July 16th, 2018 as a stray, from Sherman.  In the six months that he has been a guest at CCHS, he has won the hearts of staff and volunteers. He has visited the ice at the Northwest Arena in Jamestown to help drop the puck at a Jamestown Rebels hockey game.  General Sherman even took the stage at the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts prior to the Chautauqua Regional Youth Ballet's performance of the Nutcracker...twice. 

The General's trip to the Nutcracker was a telling one.  He really had a chance to show his personality outside of the adoption center.  He sat very patiently in the back seat on the car ride to the Reg.  He was a little nervous with the few steps that led to the dark part of stage right, but was brave and made it to the stage.  While back stage he loved the attention he received from both children and adults getting ready for the start of the performance.  General Sherman ended up being quite the showman, when it was time to leave the stage, he was hesitant to give up the spotlight. 

General Sherman is a pretty informal kind of dog.  He is a big boy who would do well in a household with older children.  If you are not of a fan of cats, that is perfect, because neither is General Sherman. He is a dog who loves to be around people, and his size is matched only by his giant, sweet personality. 

If you are looking for a sweet dog, with lots of energy and love to share, stop by CCHS and meet General Sherman.  You can fill out the adoption application form right now!
