PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE CONTACTING US OR APPLYING - Mia came to us in early November 2019 from a rural Kentucky shelter along with her sister Ava. They were 6 months old at the time, the last of the latest litter of unwanted puppies from a family known to the shelter. Mia is 11 months old now and currently weighs about 50 pounds. Mia and her sister had no human socialization before they were dumped at the shelter. They were terrified at the shelter so the shelter was looking for help for them and we were able to say Yes! Mia is making progress in her foster home. Mia loves to... - cuddle on the couch and watch tv - give kisses to her foster mom - play with other dogs (good with all sizes) - to run after tennis balls - play with all toys but especially loves squeaky ones - chew on nylabones and deer antlers - run around in the yard with her doggie foster siblings - go to doggie day camp to play with her friends - eat treats (her favorite are peanut butter milk bone treats but is not picky) - snuggle with her doggie foster siblings while napping - hanging out with her human baby foster sibling watching cartoons Mia has done well with... - potty training - crate training - walking on a leash (loud noises do still scare her but sheâs come a long way since she first came to Recycled Doggies / she wears a martingale collar while on the leash, to prevent her from backing out of her collar when she gets scared) - car rides (she used to be very scared to get in the car and of car rides, but hops right in now like a pro and just lays down and relaxes/has just started to look out the window) Mia is working on... - socializing with people (she now has started to come up to some strangers to sniff them and get petted/seek attention) - walking through doorways (sheâs a lot better now but usually runs through them) - chewing on things she isnât supposed to (we have to remember sheâs still a puppy and is really learning how to be a dog - she responds well to correction) Mia is looking for... -a person or a family that has a lot of patience and is willing to give her time to settle into her new family life - She is what we call a project dog and will likely always be shy and skittish and a flight risk when startled. - to have at least one other well-socialized, playful and friendly dog in the household that is easy going and willing to continue to show her how to dog - a family that is willing to continue to help socialize her with people and other dogs - a securely fenced yard or someone who is committed to walking her with the martingale collar and ensuring she gets enough exercise - she is still a flight risk and needs a person/family who understands that and will keep her safe. Mia has not been around cats. We are looking for an experienced pet owner with an excellent vet reference and another friendly well-socialized dog for Mia to continue her socialization and progress. Mia loves to play with other dogs when she goes to doggy day camp! If you are interested in adopting from Recycled Doggies, please complete an adoption application through our website: www.recycleddoggies.org. THAT IS THE FIRST STEP IN OUR PROCESS. Please do not just show up at an adoption event and expect to adopt a dog that day - we need time to review your application ahead of time, which is why we ask that you submit your application ahead of time so you don't miss out on the dog you are hoping to adopt while you wait for your application to be reviewed. Our adoption fee is $195. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on age-appropriate vaccines, dewormed, heartworm tested (if over 9 months of age), and microchipped. We do not adopt outside our area, which we define as two hours drive time from downtown Cincinnati (zip code 45202 - use Google Maps to determine if you are within our area) NO EXCEPTIONS. This is for the safety of our dogs, so that in case an adoption does not work out, we can be sure that we can quickly get our dog back. We do not have a shelter or facility - all of our dogs live in volunteer foster homes. In order to not infringe on any more of the time of our foster families, we introduce our dogs to potential adopters at our weekend adoption events posted on our website - please do not request to meet the dog outside of an adoption event as we are unable to grant the request. If you have additional questions, please email email@example.com.
We’ve made it easier than ever to donate to Recycled Doggies! Donations of any size are greatly appreciated. Please remember that all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law! Our tax ID number is 27-0913056.

Ava (left) and Mia (right) took a break from playing and exploring to pose pretty! They are excited for their upcoming one year birthday in June and they really hope they find their forever homes before then! Ava and Mia came to us in November. They had had no human contact or socialization for the first six months of their lives and as a result they just have no idea about people- especially adults. They are non-aggressive, very sweet, and very skeptical of people but they love other dogs! They have come a long way since we got them in November, but they are still very shy, skittish, and are considered flight risks if they get startled or scared so they would jump a fence or crawl through a hole or otherwise escape if they panic. They need patient and experienced dog owners whose homes are secure to make sure they stay safe. No electric fences. ￼They love to play with other dogs and play with toys – they also love going to doggy day care! Mia is a bit braver than Ava - Mia loves car rides, loves treats, seeks attention and affection from her foster family, while Ava is more reserved and only sneaks up for head pats and attention but often runs away if you offer her that same attention when she didn’t sneak up for it. Ava doesn’t like to eat in front of people. They’re black lab mixes- Mia weighs 50-55 pounds and Ava is smaller at around 45 pounds. ￼
