Meet Blaze

5/11/20 In keeping with current safety guidelines, our shelter is closed to visitors and the majority of our dogs are in foster care with volunteers. While social distancing restrictions have slowed our adoption process (requiring patience on everyone's part!), we continue working with homes to ensure the right fit for families and dogs alike. If you are looking to adopt within the week, we are unable to accommodate … but if you are prepared to take your time in finding just-the-right canine partner for your family and lifestyle, we’d love to hear from you!

UPDATE 5/3 A prolific source of comic relief, Blaze has become somewhat of a star on our volunteers' Facebook page. Like the video of when he decided he was done with his walk and settled down for a spontaneous nap in the middle of the road. Looking for a family to appreciate his offbeat sense of humor.

UPDATE 4/22 Some additional insights from Blaze's time in foster care ...

* Gets along great with resident dog.
* When left alone, Blaze does well in a crate or in a gated area with lots of stuff to chew on.
* Good habits: snuggly, sweet, good on leash, good with every dog he's met
* Dream home: Will do best with older kids, a fenced yard and some basic obedience training.

UPDATE 3/20 Good can come out of something even as ugly as the coronavirus. Just ask any of our lucky shelter dogs who are being temporarily fostered in the homes of our huge-hearted volunteers. Blaze, for one, is making himself right at home. His foster mom has been posting lots of adorable pictures (Blaze relaxing, playing with the resident dogs, watching tv, sitting right on top of her) along with snippets like, "The pups after a long walk on a beautiful afternoon." And, "Too cute not to share." And, "He's very talkative. Likes to bark, whine, howl a little. Chatty li'l guy. Not great for conference calls, but it's the new normal!"

Foster mom is completely smitten--and we know there is a meant-to-be family who will be smitten with Blaze as well. He's around two years old and weighs in the mid-forties. He came to STAF from one of our county shelter partners, where he had been surrendered by his owners.

• All of our animals are spayed/neutered and current on shots.
• 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 from STAF.
• We require a 4-foot-tall 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.
• 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 can not adopt to homes with invisible fences.
• We do request vet and personal references.
• We can facilitate adoptions within a 75-mile radius of our Cincinnati-based shelter.
