Meet Addy

Addy is an absolutely gorgeous Redbone Coonhound and this lovely lady has some of the longest velvety ears we’ve ever seen! Addy came to STAF from a high kill county pound where she had been found as a stray. Addy came to STAF at an emaciated 43 lbs, but we are very happy to say that Addy is now at a healthy weight and simply beautiful.

At approximately 2 years old Addy is still a big puppy. She is lively, talkative, and has a great deal of energy; she is also very sweet and curious. Addy loves any and all human interaction (she has been fabulous when interacting with children). Check out Addy's starring performance on Fox 19. She can schmooze with the best of them:) http://www.fox19.com/clip/14572093/save-the-animals-foundation

We are so thankful to have Addy in foster care where she is blossoming:). Below is a portion of the wonderful write up from her foster home. We will share the write-up in its entirety with interested homes:):
“Addy has been an absolute pleasure, and we have opened our home for her to stay with us until she finds her forever home. Addy loves being active during the day. Her favorite activity is running and sniffing around the yard. Addy plays well with our 3 dogs and enjoys chase, wrestling, and tumbling with our boys. She is completely house broken and crate trained. In the house, she loves lounging, trying to get into the kitchen, and lap time.

Addy does need to be active. She loves being outside. Addy enjoys fetch, sticks, soccer, and tug-of-war. She loves it if you chase her. Addy does need supervision as she will dig if she smells something in the ground and will bark back at neighbor dogs (easily distracted back to play). She will also play with the toys by herself. When playing with other dogs, she seems to get frustrated when she can’t catch another dog. She will lower her head and “bellow” (longer bark that is lower in pitch). She will also do this if another dog is being too rough with her or has hurt her. If other dogs have a toy, she will chase them and try to take it. She usually waits for the toy to be dropped but will take it if she can. If the other dog tells her not to, she will back off. Addy likes to destroy soft dog toys. She will not eat the stuffing, but we closely supervise her and remove the squeaker as soon as it comes out. Addy will happily play with the unstuffed remains.

There are some house behaviors to work on. She loves to climb and will need reminders to get down. Addy can easily jump smaller gates but will respect them most of the time. She is still adjusting to noises. She currently hates the vacuum and will not step over the cord even if it is off. Addy is not aware of her size and will bump into furniture and others. Addy does seem to enjoy calmer music. She will wag her tail and flip onto her back. Addy did this almost the entire time we watched, “A Star Is Born,” so she might be a Lady Gaga fan.
Addy only responds well to positive based training.”

Addy is ready for her forever home, a place where she will get the love and attention she deserves!

Addy needs: An active home with a privacy fenced yard.
Addy would love: Positive based training to build confidence. Doggie daycare and/or canine playmates.
Addy’s estimated birth date is October 2016


Please see our homepage for visiting hours and adoption details.

All of our animals are spayed/neutered and current on shots.

Visit our website www.staf.org to download our application.

We do not do same-day adoptions; we ask that you return for a follow-up visit before taking an animal home.

You must be 21 years or older to adopt a dog from STAF

We require a physical fence for homes with children under the age of 11. We also may require a physical fence for specific dogs on a case-by-case basis, depending on each dog's behavior and exercise needs.

Invisible fences - Due in part to increasing coyote activity/incidents in the area and the difficulty of predicting how a dog will respond to invisible fence training--we cannot adopt to homes with invisible fences unless otherwise noted in a dog's online profile.

We do request vet and personal references.

At this time, we are only able to consider applicants within 75 miles of Cincinnati.

Can’t adopt but want to help? You can make a difference! Our shelter is run entirely on volunteer-power and generous donations from animal-lovers like you. 100% of your contribution goes directly to caring for our 500+ furry residents. Thank you for your support.
