New to OCDRT on 11/13/2016 from central Ohio.

Lily Grace is being fostered in Creston Ohio.

Lily Grace (Gracie) is around 6 months of age & less than 20#, we suspect her to be an ACD/JRT mix. She was surrendered due to very long work hours & they wanted what was best for Grace. Grace introduced nice to the pack but needs more social time as she is fearful but defensive. She takes her time to warm up to strangers but a little food and space is all she needs. Gracie loves her toys & playing fetch. We are seeing some resource guarding issues which we are modifying. She is crate trained, & will learn basic manners, foundation skills, house training, & have all her vetting completed on 12/6. We will accept applications while she is under evaluation & she will be available to leave around 12/10. Grace will require an ACD experienced home. Check back for updates as we get to know her better. 

UPDATE 11/28/2016: Lily Grace has a deposit from an approved applicant to hold her for a meeting in mid-December. 

UPDATE 12/17/2016: Lily Grace had a successful meeting and left for her forever home. We will update after she settles in. 

UPDATE 12/31/2016: Lily Grace, nka Viper, is Officially Adopted!

ADOPTION INFORMATION: P lease email for an adoption application, as this is the first step to the adoption process. We are better able to suggest a potential match after reviewing your completed application. We require a telephone interview, check references, home support visit, & a contract and adoption fee of $250 applies. All our foster dogs are altered, heartworm tested and kept on prevention, tick borne disease tested, receive DHLPP, Bordatella, Lyme, & Rabies vaccine, fecal tested & de-wormed as necessary, micro-chipped, any additional medical concerns or behavior concerns are addressed, crate trained, leash trained, and are kept on a premium food.

PLEASE NOTE: This Rescue is not a public shelter. This dog is being fostered in a private home until adoption. Our fosters are adopted on first come, first serve basis, with applications being processed in the order received. If approved for adoption, a deposit is required to hold the dog until a meeting can be arranged. We do require prospective adopters to travel to the home of the foster dog along with all family members, including any resident dog(s). This is the only way to see the known temperament of our fosters dogs, while they are in the home they feel is 'their's'. Any behavior concerns with meeting new people/dog(s) on their home 'turf' will be visible at the meeting.


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.
