Meet Della

This little 9-year-old, nine-pounder found her way into STAF's care via the Humane Society. Since her arrival, Della has spent time in a foster home and on a trial home visit with a potential adopter. We've learned that she doesn't like to be alone ... a common anxiety among dogs who--for one reason or another--have been separated from the family they know and love. She does take great comfort in having canine company, so we are in search of a forever home that includes another dog.

From Della's foster mom: "What a doll! She is sweet, playful and very cuddly. Della walks beautifully on leash and is not reactive to people/dogs on our walks. Della really likes people of all ages. She will need to be in a home with another dog I think. She does fantastic with my pack. I’ve seen no anxiety at all. She picked up on our routine quickly. I crate her if I leave the house."

From Della's trial home visit: "Della is an excellent well-trained dog who knows plenty of commands, eats well, is great on a leash, and is a little bundle of love. She knows how to sit, stay, lay down, and fetch, among other commands and she only accepts belly rubs (and the occasional kibble) as a form of payment for performing the commands. She loves to give kisses and will always make sure your face is thoroughly washed. Della is also an excellent lap dog who will sit in your lap if you let her."

If your family includes another dog and you'd like to meet Della, please visit for visiting hours, a downloadable application, and additional information.

• 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.
