Chance's Story...
Hi, my name is Chance, my foster family named me Chance because they believed I deserved a better chance at life. I am a small boy Flat Coat Retriever mix and I am 2 months old. I have already been neutered and up to date on my shots. My mom is a medium size dog and I probably will be too! We are a all people friendly breed and we like other animals too. I haven't been introduced to my foster family dogs yet because we are still too young.

My story began before I was born. My mommy was abandoned on a strangers property when she was pregnant. I was born outside on that property. We lived outside with another mommy and her babies for the first 6 weeks of or lives. It sure wasn't fun and it was pretty scary for me. Then our life changed the day the nice people from Louies Legacy came and rescued all of us!! Thanks to them I found my foster family who saved my life, and my other sister and brother because I don't know how much longer I would have lasted out there. I was smaller than all my sisters and brothers and no one would let me eat. I could barely walk without falling I was so weak. When my foster family got me home they gave me some yummy food and a nice warm bed. They took us to see the vet so we would get healthy and ready for our forever family! My foster mom says that I'm a little shy. She says that loud things scare me. I'm not used to all of this. I feel so much better now and I am trying to be braver. All I need is some tender loving care, and to know that I will be fed and have a safe place to call home and I will be a good boy for you. When my brother and sister wrestle I don't like that so I go to the sidelines and just watch. I'm still tiny compared to them . I do like to curl up in my little round bed with my big stuffed puppy. I'm a good boy, I'm quiet, I like to just watch my surroundings and take it all in. Please consider making me a part of your family so I can finally have my own forever home and my own people.

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

Chance, 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.
