Shadow's Info...

Shadow's Story...
Hi there! My name is Shadow and I am a black Flat Coat Retriever mix boy and I am 2 months old. I have been neutered and I am up to date on my shots. My mom is a medium size girl and I probably will be too! We love all people, children, and animals. I haven't been introduced to my foster family dogs yet because we are too little still. I know I will like them . I am a happy boy!

So my story as much as I know so far because I am kinda little is: My mommy was abandoned when she was pregnant. I was born on someone's property where we lived outside with another mommy and her pups for the first 6 week of our life until the very nice people from Louie's Legacy came and rescued all 14 of us and our 2 mommys! Thanks to them for saving our lives and finding me and my brother and sister our foster family. They cared for us, fed us yummy food FINALLY! We were all pretty hungry. They cleaned us up, gave us warm clean blankets and some toys! We then went to see the vet to get us all healthy and ready for our new forever homes. My foster mom says I'm a funny guy. I'm silly, and so cute! I'm a pretty confident little man, and I am always exploring. Foster mom said I'm pretty smart. I eat kind of fast because we didn't have much to eat our first 6 weeks living outside. I love belly rubs, and I have just discovered this tail thing on me! It wont let me catch it!! I hope you will consider to become my very own forever family, my very own people to love forever.

To adopt this pet, please visit

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, 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. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.

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, and can be transferred to any pet. 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. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please email your confirmation number to

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. Please note that we do not perform same-day adoptions.

Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shadow, a Cincinnati Flat-Coated Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Flat-Coated Retriever for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Flat-Coated Retriever puppy 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 Flat-Coated Retriever breeders who help with Flat-Coated Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
