Muffy's adoption donation is $275 and she is being fostered in Central Ohio. She has been spayed, microchipped, received her rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza, and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms, started on prevention as well as flea prevention.  She has also had a dental cleaning with extractions. 

Muffy is a mature girl who has made incredible progress in rescue.  She came into our rescue because her owner had a terrible fall and ended up in a rehab facility and could no longer care for her. She is estimated to be about 12 years old but could be older and Muffy is a firm believer that age is just a number as she lives her very best life. Muffy has adapted to the changes like a champ and doesn't let anything get in her way.  She does have some impaired vision but it doesn't bother Muffy in the least. Some of her favorite things are getting up and sitting on the couch with you and going for long walks.

Her foster mom reports that she is really impressed by how well she walks on a leash, as she will walk right alongside you the whole way and won't bark at people/other dogs that you meet on the walks. It's actually been motivating me to get more exercise myself just because of how pleasant she is to walk! She'd be content living in a quiet home with someone that can give her all the pets because honestly, she lives for pets. She follows me around the house and sleeps next to me in a dog bed while I work from home. I let her roam the house freely because she never gets into any trouble. She doesn't seem to have any interest in playing with other dogs or toys so I think she'd be fine living as the only dog in the house or with another animal that matches her energy level. She is all tail wags around new strangers and eagerly shoves her head near them for pets. She rarely barks but will whimper to let you know when she wants something; whether that be to go potty, be fed, or of course... get pets.   In summary, Muffy is a lovely girl who is still spunky with a lot of years left, and will be a great companion to anyone looking for an affectionate lap dog that also loves to go on adventurous walks (if you can keep up with her)!

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website (the OFP website is, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the  individual webpage of our dogs , you will be able to get more information each dog.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets. 

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
