New to OCDRT on 1/7/2016 from southeastern Ohio, Precious Livy is being fostered in Creston, Ohio.

Precious Livy is a little over 4 months of age and is 18 pounds.  She was an owner surrender due to not being the proper match for the situation.  Livy was well taken care of and her vetting was started.  We will scheduled her for her spay and microchip.  Livy introduced well to her foster siblings.   She is slow to warm up to strangers and needs continued socialization.  We will expose her to new situations and further her foundation skills.   Livy will require an ACD-savvy home.  Please check back for updates as she settles in.

UPDATE 1/14/2017:  Livy is making good progress in her foster home.  She is learning not to be a bully in her play with the other dogs, with their corrections or her foster mom’s.  Livy was very inappropriate when meeting new people but this is also greatly improved.  She has met over 10 people in the last week and will continue to meet many more as she goes to work with her foster mom.  Livy is crate trained, house trained, learning basic obedience and foundation skills.  She will be spayed on 1/25 and ready for her new home after that.  If you have raised a “true” ACD, you will appreciate this pup.  She is not for the faint of heart and will have you raising your training skills.

UPDATE 1/26/2017:  Livy has a deposit with an approved applicant to hold her for a meeting on 2/4.  We will update after her meeting.

UPDATE 2/4/2017:  Livy had a successful meeting with her new family and she left for her forever home.   We will update as she settles in.

UPDATE 2/20/2017:  Livy is officially adopted!
