New to OCDRT on 12/12/2014 from a southern Ohio shelter.

Jewel is in foster care with Save Ohio Strays while she raises her puppies, after they are weaned she will be fostered in Creston, OH. The puppies will be adopted through SOS & Jewel through OCDRT.

Jewel is a young adult who found herself as a stray & joined other roaming dogs. The DW was able to capture her & bring her to the shelter with her pups. She is scared but lets us handle her & is being a good Mom. We will update as she settles in. We will get her basic vetting scheduled & complete all her spay when she is ready.

UPDATE 12/26/2014: Jewel has tested positive for Lyme Disease – she is not symptomatic – and is starting a treatment protocol. She is negative for heartworms. She has been doing well with the resident dogs & cats in the home. Jewel will be transferred to OCDRT by mid-January.

UPDATE 12/31/2014: Jewel is now in foster care with OCDRT. She is adjusting & reserved around the pack. We will start her crate training & foundation skills & continue with the leash & house training SOS started. She will be under treatment for her tick borne diseases for the next 30 days at which time our Vet Team will re-evaluate her. Jewel will be spayed February 10th along with having a tooth extracted.

UPDATE 1/27/2015: Jewel is doing very well in her foster home! She is asking the resident female to play with her and she is starting to follow around the resident males and wanting to interact with them. She is even playing in the yard! We are so excited to see her start to interact with the other dogs. She is working on her recall along with other basic commands. Her GI issues are completely resolved and her tick disease treatment will end on 1/30/2015. Jewel has not displayed any symptoms.
