Shandy's Story...
Shandy is a golden retriever/whippet mix who is approximately one year old. She is currently learning to become more comfortable in a crate and is mostly house broken, but does need to be reminded sometimes if she is having too much fun playing! She LOVES playing fetch and tug o war with her foster family and foster fur siblings. Shandy can be quite shy at first, but as soon as she feels safe and comfortable she loves to play with people and dogs. She would preferably like a fenced in yard so she can run and play with her family. She also is a fast runner when playing, so she might also love to run with her new family! Shandy is currently working to become a confident dog as she can be nervous around new places and people, so she would probably do best with a family who can continue to give her a predictable schedule and training so she knows what to expect throughout her day. Shandy has so much love to give and she might love cuddling and being pet even more than playing fetch!

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

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