 Milly
Age: 8 Months Old / Breed: Hound / Sex: Female / Rescue: SAAP
”Milly is a 6 month old 28 pound hound mix! She loves people. I think she would be a great puppy for a family. She's a little nervous around dogs right now, but I think as the days go on with her being out of a shelter and with my resident dog she'll be a playful happy puppy.”

Fred
Age: 3 Months Old / Breed: Domestic Long Hair / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Kittens are very social by nature, so if there is no other cat in the home, our kittens (under one year of age) are adopted in pairs.
Hello, I'm Fred! I'm a 3 month old male kitten. I have longer hair which makes me really fluffy. I'm litter trained and good with small dogs. I haven't seen bigger dogs, but I'm sure I would like them too. My favorite things are chin scratches and face snuggles. I really like to play with my siblings. My favorite day would consist of running around trying to catch the red dot. I'm super fluffy so If I were a treat I'd be a marshmallow. My adoption fee is $75.”

 Lucky
Age: 5 Years Old / Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound Coonhound Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: HART of Cincinnati Animal Rescue
”Lucky here! I was hit by a car and left for dead on the side of the road. A nice lady found and took me to the closest vet where they contemplated euthanasia. You see, my spine was fractured leaving me paralyzed from the waist down. 
Thankfully, this rescue gave me a second chance. I am happy to be alive and am perfectly capable of living a good quality life. I just need to find a family who is perfectly cable of caring for my special needs :)
I am guessed to be a 5-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound. I love the company of other dogs and walking in my cart! I also enjoy getting pet by everyone I meet. If you don’t come to me, I’m rolling my way to you. 
My bladder needs expressed every 6 hours, and I cannot control my bowels. If you cannot deal with diapers, pee, and poopy messes, I will not be a good fit for you.
I had bilateral leg amputation surgery to remove my back legs since they were dead weight. More recent pics are me without legs.”

Bear
Age: 2 Years Old / Breed: Flat-Coated Retriever / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Hi! My name is Bear! I am a two year old, Flat-Coated Retriever mix. At 59 pounds, I am the perfect medium sized boy, fit for any yard! I am fostered with dogs, cats and kids and do great with everyone in my foster home, but I am a pretty playful guy which can sometimes annoy dogs that don't enjoy playing as much as I do! I am mostly potty trained, but have had a few accidents while adjusting to my foster home - I promise I'm working hard at it! I am very quiet in my crate and will go in on command. I will need a family that is committed to training me to use my smarts for good. It doesn't seem like I had any training prior to coming to rescue, so I'm very much a puppy in a bigger dog's body! My foster family says I will learn quickly as I am very smart and eager to please. If you're looking for a handsome, happy guy to spend your time with - you've found him! Apply today! My adoption fee is $250.”

Q-Tip
Age: 4.5 Years Old / Breed: Great Pyrenees / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Q-Tip is a 4.5 year old Great Pyrenees mix! This gentle giant weighs in around 140 pounds and is full of love! Q came into rescue severely matted so he received a much needed haircut. Once his fur grows back out, he'll look like a big, fluffy polar bear again! Q is very laid back, loving to lounge around in his foster home. He does a little bit of running in the yard here and there but is primarily found relaxing around the home. He does fantastic with other dogs of all sizes, having met dogs that range from as small as five pounds, to as big as he is. He does great with cats and loves the children that visit. Q is potty trained and prefers to be free roaming over using a crate, but will use a crate as needed. He loves being with people and would love a forever home that is home more often enough to shower him in attention. If you want to make this big boy a part of your family, apply online today!
My adoption fee is $250.”

Logan Jax
Age: 3 Years Old / Breed: Australian Shepherd / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Logan Jax is a 40lb Aussie mix who is the ultimate come back kid. In his 3 years of life, he has been through more than we could imagine- living in a cave, possibly being shot, having hip surgery.. and now just needs a calm home with a furry friend or two to play and help him build his confidence. He is a play hard to get kinda guy, but once he knows you have treats and a kind soul, he will nudge you with his nose for ear scratches and belly rubs. He loves nothing more than a good chew toy and curling up in a dog bed. He is a little impatient, so if he needs to use the bathroom you can't ignore him, but luckily he lets you know. He needs a quiet home, with at least one other furry friend and no children. With routines, patience, and love, Logan could be the perfect addition to your home. His adoption fee is $250.”

Teddy
Age: 10 Months Old / Breed: Beagle / Sex: Male / Rescue: SAAP
”Meet Teddy! This beagle pup is a happy go lucky guy. He loves to play, give kisses and snuggle. What makes Teddy more special than your average Beagle? Teddy was born with a heart anomaly where a tract that blood flows through in his heart is narrow and some valves are a bit deformed. At this time, he has a heart murmur from this developmental anomaly. As Teddy grows up, he is likely to develop congestive heart failure. For now, our partner vet recommends that Teddy visit the doctor monthly for his first year of life. If the doctor of the adopter's choosing believes Teddy needs a referral to a cardiac doctor, the adopter should follow through with that.
Teddy is working on potty training, still having accidents but trying very hard. He's crate trained. Teddy LOVES kids, and other dogs; due to a bossy cat in his foster home, he steers clear of them. If you feel Teddy could be a family member you are open to care for and ensure he gets the best care for his heart condition, please apply at www.adoptastray.com”
