Meet Cork

Cork and his buddy Lazlo came to STAF recently from a rural county shelter. Sadly, they were part of a hoarding case. They are both small hound mixes, each just under 30 pounds. Cork is 2 years old. Cork was initially a bit nervous when he arrived, but he with the time he has spent at STAF we can definitely see him beginning to blossom and soaking up all the STAF love:) Now that he’s becoming more comfortable, we also see his fun and playful side. He loves playing with his buddy, Lazlo, 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:)”

More feedback on Cork after he attended a public event: "I took Cork to a very large and busy. Cork was so good! He went right up to other dogs to meet them, loved meeting the kids and did very well with the crowd until the very end. He's a great car rider & just a sweet boy :-)"

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.

Both Cork and Lazlo will do best in a home with another dog to help them build their confidence as well as a less hectic home without small children. Because they are still unsure they will also benefit from having a secured fenced yard. We know these sweet boys had a rough time before coming to STAF, but we will shower them with lots of love and care until they find the wonderful forever homes they deserve.

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 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.
