New to OCDRT on 8/20/2016 from a northern Kentucky shelter. 
Kizzy is being fostered in Creston Ohio. 
Kizzy is 2.5 years old spayed female. Her name means 'Cinnamon' for her pretty red coat. She is a very sweet girl who is learning that the world isn't out to get her. She is learning how to walk on a leash, and is already catching on quickly. She is a quieter cattle dog and will slowly try and sneak up to sit with you on the couch. She also is your little shadow in the yard, she likes to hang right with you. Although a little afraid, she introduced great to other dogs big and small, and kitties too. She wags her tail really hard at the other dogs! She thinks respectful kids are just fine, and will let them come up and pet her. She likes to be petted and will seek out attention. She is good in the crate, and learning to potty outside. She needs a home that will help build her confidence and take their time to get to know this sweet girl! Please check back for  updates as we get to know Kizzy better. 
UPDATE 8/30/2016: Kizzy has a deposit to hold her from an approved applicant for her meeting on 9/12.
UPDATE 9/12/2016: Kizzy's meeting went well and she's headed to her forever home. Please check back for updates as she settles in over the next 2 weeks. 
UPDATE 9/20/2016: Kizzy has returned to OCDRT though no fault of her own. Just not the right home for her needs. Please stay tuned for an update as we re-evaluate Kizzy. 
UPDATE 9/29/2016: She's ready for her forever home! Kizzy has recovered well from her little 'at large' adventure. She's regaining her lost weight and her confidence. She is starting to play with the other dogs & people. If there is another dog in the home, it needs to be a stable laid back male who is not going to react to her 'fearful' moments as she adjusts when playing & once she adjusts she is more of a dominate female during play. She will require a fenced in yard, as we are seeing a new Kizzy now that she's not on a long line. Kizzy seeks out her humans when something scares her, pepperoni is an amazing reward! Kizzy needs an ACD experienced person who can help her become the confident ACD she is showing her Foster Mom.

About Ohio Cattle Dog Rescue Team

About Our Rescue Group...

Ohio Cattle Dog Rescue Team is an all volunteer group who may be a newly formed, however this Team has many combined years working together in Rescue. The Founders of OCDRT have been active in ACD Rescue since 2003 along with backgrounds in the veterinary fields since 1982, animal control fields since 2004, business ownership fields, military fields, & all have been through the adoption process with other Rescues.
OCDRT has filed with the Ohio Department of Agriculture & is a State of Ohio verified 501(c)3 Organization. If you would like to make a donation please email for details on helping with OCDRT's food and / or vet expenses. OCDRT appreciates your support!

We welcome you to join us in our mission of helping the homeless ACD's find their right forever home & with our continued support before & after adoption, we want to make sure our foster ACD's know "You'll Never Walk Alone".

Ohio Cattle Dog Rescue Team's primary foster home is based just outside of Sterling, OH. There is over an acre fenced in for safe off leash play. Our foster dogs live in our homes with us and are treated like one of our own. While with us they learn housebreaking, crate training, general obedience, leash skills, house manners, socialization with adults, children, & multiple dogs, traveling in a vehicle, and a few other things depending on the foster dog. Each foster dog continues their socialization with humans & other dogs. All our fosters are completely vetted and evaluated for a minimum of 2-3 weeks to learn their likes/dislikes and what type of home they need, while at the primary foster home. Once their 2-3 week evaluation has passed, if they are ready & there is a compatible foster home open, OCDRT will transfer a foster to make room for a new ACD to enter our program. All foster homes must be within a 30 minute drive of our primary vet clinic in Rittman, OH.
