Finlay's Story...
Meet Finlay, a handsome young Border Collie mix looking for a forever friend! Finlay loves to play with other active dogs his size, and never met a human he didn't like. Finlay has the energy and the focus of a dog made just for agility! He has great focus on his handler, coming right to you and sitting at your feet as if to say "What would you like from me?" In fact, you will most often find Finlay sitting at your feet gazing up at you like he's found his very best friend.

This handsome bi-eyed Border Collie is looking for an active family that will give him a job to do - whether it is obedience, agility, or something else! Due to his herding characteristics, we prefer to place Finlay in a home without small children. Please apply at if you would like to give sweet Finlay a forever home!

All of our dogs come fully up to date on vaccinations, including rabies and bordatella, are microchipped, heartworm tested negative, current on preventatives, dewormed, as well as neutered, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals.

For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application here: - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home. An application does not obligate you to adopt. You will receive an automated confirmation once your application is successfully submitted. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the dog you are interested in, a volunteer will give you a call ASAP.

We are a foster based rescue and do not have a shelter location where dogs can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page at for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a dog in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.

Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Finlay, a Cincinnati Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd 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 Border Collie/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Border Collie/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
