SHARONVILLE -- Within five minutes of watching an 6-year-old American Staffordshire terrier-mix trying to determine the winner of last night’s Crosstown Shootout, Kelsie Fae knew what she had to do.

9 On Your Side went to SPCA Cincinnati’s Sharonville facility Thursday afternoon to have a little fun with the dogs there, including one named Blue.

Fae said she had tried to adopt Blue a few months ago, but someone else did. Then, she saw Blue was back at the SPCA on WCPO’s Facebook page.

"We had actually adopted a dog from SPCA a couple of months ago, we were looking for a buddy for him (when) he was all alone," she said. "We went to the shelter, saw Blue and we just fell in love with her."

But in that instance, Blue was adopted out before Fae could take her. On Thursday, she got her second chance.

"We saw it (the broadcast) and we literally jumped up within five minutes and went over to the shelter," she said.
