Meet The Real Shelter Dogs of Ohio

Meet The Real Shelter Dogs of Ohio

Complete with George Clooney’s seal of approval!

By Stacy Lenz

Welcome to Cincinnati, Ohio—known for the catchiest TV theme song ever created (seriously, how did WKRP in Cincinnati come out before we were born and yet, somehow, we know every single word?). But if we know anything else about Cincinnati that isn’t earworm related, it’s that they’ve got some really cute dogs: Look no further than Luv Fur Mutts Animal Rescue!   

Luv Fur Mutts isn’t technically a shelter, so please forgive our Real Shelter Dog misnomer; they are a rescue team that pulls dogs from high-kill shelters and places them in private foster homes while they wait for adoption. One LFM adoption success story comes by way of George Clooney, who adopted an adorable terrier named Nate for his parents—then surprised them by having Nate delivered on Christmas Eve. Swoon!

And now meet your Real Shelter Dogs, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines! (If you are interested in adopting any of these dapper doggos, please visit
