UPDATE 4/22 from his foster mom:
* Cork gets along great with my dog and any other dog-visitors, but likes to take plenty of timeouts to bask in the sun and watch the world go by.
* Good with the feline-kind. My cats are even sleeping with him and giving him little kisses.
* I never have to crate him, he sleeps on a bed in spare room at night and I trust him when I leave the house. He's fully house-trained.
* Now that I have earned his trust, he is very affectionate. Still working on him coming in when called but getting so much better.
* Dream home: A calm, quiet family that that likes to take long walks and cuddle on the couch.

Cork (est. birthdate 12/16) came to STAF after being rescued from a hoarding situation. Around 2 years old and just under 30 pounds, Cork was initially a bit nervous upon arrival... but in his time at our shelter, we have seen him blossom, soak up all the STAF love, and let his fun side show. He loves playing with other dogs and running after toys in the yard. He's also a regular at doggy daycare, courtesy of The Pet Spot and Red Dog Pet Resort!
Shortly after arriving at STAF we got some great feedback on Cork from a volunteer:
“When Cork first arrived he would shake every time I went to put his harness on him. He really didn’t understand what it meant or what it was like to take a nice long walk. After a few weeks, although he is still tentative, I now seeing that he is much more eager to take a walk and not nearly as scared. It is wonderful to see him learning to trust the STAF volunteers and to see the stress begin to leave his face. He is now much more comfortable taking in the sites and the smells on our walks and I think he is really beginning to enjoy them. He is a very gentle soul that will continue to grow in a calmer home that understands that the confident dog under that shy little guy will emerge with continued patience and positive based training. He has made great strides since first arriving at STAF:)”
While Cork continues to make great strides every day as his world expands, there is damage from living in a hoarding situation that may never be fully undone. He has moments of panic and may try to bolt out of a door or car ... so it's imperative that his family-to-be is diligent in having him on leash and under control at all times.
Cork will need in a home with another dog to help them build their confidence as well as a less hectic home without small children. Because he is still unsure, he will also need a secured fenced yard. We know this sweet boy had a rough time before coming to STAF, but we will shower him with lots of love and care until he finds the wonderful forever homes he deserves.
* Cork’s estimated birthdate is January 2017
* Cork will need: A patient and calmer home preferably with a confident dog to help Cork gain his confidence. Also due to his uncertainty he will always need a secured fenced yard.
* Cork would love: Positive based training.
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.
We do request vet and personal references.
At this time, we are only able to consider applicants within 75 miles of Cincinnati.
