New to OCDRT on 8/20/2016 from a northern Kentucky shelter, Kizzy is being fostered in Mansfield, Ohio.

Kizzy is a 2-1/2-year-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 to 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 until a meeting can be arranged within the next two weeks.

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 two weeks.

UPDATE 9/20/2016:  Kizzy has returned to OCDRT through no fault of her own.  Just not the right home for her needs.  Please stay tuned for an update as we re-evaluate her.

UPDATE 9/29/2016:  Kizzy is ready for her forever home!  Kizzy has recovered well from her “at large” adventure.   She is regaining her lost weight and her confidence.  She is starting to play with the other dogs and with 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 and once she adjusts, she is more of a dominant 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.   She 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.

UPDATE 11/18/2016:   Kizzy is officially adopted!
