The Seneca County Bicentennial Committee has announced that Halo, owned by Nan Sauber, is the winner of the Seneca County Canine Commissioner contest.

The committee was in search of a special dog to serve as an honorary Seneca County Canine Commissioner for 2024. The contest was a fun initiative meant to get the residents of the county involved with the celebration of 200 years. Halo, along with 13 other Seneca County dogs, gathered nearly 9,500 votes from the community.

Halo was rescued in November of 2018 from the HALO rescue in Xenia Ohio. She is an 8-year-old lab/beagle mix. Halo enjoys long walks, car rides, listening to the concerts at the East Green Amphitheater, and visiting with neighbors and friends. Halo also volunteers and visits the elderly at The Willows at Tiffin.

Halo, along with her owner, Nan Sauber, enjoyed being on the campaign trail and visiting various Seneca County businesses. Nan Sauber stated, “Halo cannot contain her excitement in having been given the opportunity and responsibility to do more to promote Seneca County and represent everyone, including all her Canine friends.”  Nan encouraged Halo’s dedicated Facebook followers join them in completing the Secrets of Seneca County Historical Driving Tour.

Halo received a Seneca County Canine Commissioner bandana, barking rights, and will be featured on social media and on the Seneca County Bicentennial website.

The committee would like to thank the Seneca County Commissioners for their financial support of the events and initiatives planned throughout the year. To stay up to date with additional events and initiatives visit
