Leon's Story...

Our foster dogs live as family members in the foster home until chosen for adoption.

Hi, my name is Leon.

I was found as a stray, wandering the streets trying to find a place to live. I am glad I am at the shelter because it means that I have a roof over my head and I don't have to search for my next meal but I really want a real home with a family. Do you have room in your heart and your home for me??

UPDATE: I am now living in a wonderful foster home with lots of kids to love me and dogs and cats for companions.

This is what my foster mom has to say about me, "Leon has blended in nicely with our "population". He is quiet and well mannered, walks nicely on leash. He does not attempt to get out of our fenced yard and is not a "barker" even when tempted by visiting squirrels! He sleeps on a dog mat next to our bed and has only friendly exchanges with the three cats that share that space. He likes to play with our dog but is not aggressive. He tends to pick up any stuffed toys that are laying about, but he hands them over most politely when asked. And he has the coolest ears ever!"

I am a young fellow, a little over one year old and I weigh around 40 pounds. The perfect size, not to big, not too little. Now, don't you just love my big ears, better to hear you with. I have already been neutered, given my basic shots, microchipped, and am heartworm negative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leon, a Cincinnati Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cincinnati breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
