Meet Lucia

Lucia arrived at STAF this past summer. She was found as a stray and taken to one of STAF’s county shelter partners. It appeared that she had been fending for herself for quite some time; she was so very thin (see a profile picture). Lucia is a magnificent black and tan coonhound and we believe she is about 4 years old.

When Lucia first arrived at STAF she was afraid of her own shadow. Sadly she had not been exposed to so many things in life, but from the minute we met her we knew sweet Lucia was a diamond in the rough. With time, patience and understanding Lucia would blossom into the loving, trusting and fun-loving dog we knew was there just beneath the surface.

First we made sure to work on Lucia’s health issues which are now healed and she has a clean bill of health.

Next we needed to find Lucia canine friends who would help build her confidence and help teach her to trust.

Then we knew we had to have Lucia involved with one of our volunteers who has worked her magic before with our frightened and fragile dogs. This volunteer has been taking Lucia into her home, exposing her to everyday life (including playing with her dog and cat), taking her to doggie daycare and working with Lucia and her little quirks all the while building Lucia’s confidence. This volunteer has been rewarded with plenty of snuggles and kisses. Watch Lucia’s ears flip-flop while having a blast racing around the volunteer’s yard:)

Lucia has come so far since first arriving at STAF. She most likely lived most of her life outdoors but is nearly perfect with her house training:)! It will take a little time for a home to earn Lucia’s trust. With that we know that Lucia will need a home that has another dog to help Lucia to continue to build her confidence, a securely fenced yard and home that is patient, kind and willing to work with a lovely little dog named Lucia, who will thank you with her eyes and her kisses for the rest of her life.

Lucia needs: A securely fenced yard and another dog in the home.
Lucia would love: Positive based training.
Lucia’s estimated birth date is March 2013

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.
