Ellie's Story...
Ellie is the ultimate family dog! She is a 5 year old Shepherd/Shar Pei/Lab mix who was rescued from a rural shelter. Ellie is extremely gentle, calm, and laid back. Her big brown eyes and floppy ears make you smile just looking at her. Ellie weighed around 51 pounds when she left the shelter but has done some much needed filling out. She gets along great with men, women, children, dogs, cats, and even rats! Ellie is being fostered with three young children and ADORES the kids! She can usually be found in whichever room the kids are in and provides no shortage of kisses! Ellie is house trained and crate trained. She is is total cuddle bug and would love to find a family of her own. Her teeth were ground down from where she had tried to chew herself off a chain, and she was so happy to leave outdoor life behind and start her new life inside, with people she loves.

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, fully up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, 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, or even a different pet, 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

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