New to OCDRT on 8/8/2016 from a northwestern Ohio shelter, Vanilla Bean is being fostered in Creston, Ohio.

If you would like to sponsor Vanilla Bean, please go to – Vanilla says Thank you!

Vanilla Bean was brought in to the shelter by a civilian as a stray.  She was very afraid of everything, but did seek human comfort.  She has no idea what a leash is for or what humans want from her.   Stay tuned for her updates!

UPDATE 8/9/2016:  Vanilla Bean is around a year of age and about 35#.  She has started her vaccines and dewormer and her spay/4DX/rabies vaccine/heartworm test are scheduled for 8/18/16.  She is a quick study and is learning that we are here to help her, not to hurt her.  She likes her crate and kept it dry all night, considering she was too stressed to potty earlier.   Vanilla has been avoiding the ACDs,  but is curious.   When asked to play, she politely goes belly-up or warns them off with a proper air snap.  She was happily chasing a ball around this morning and coming when called.   We will teach her crate training, house training, social skills and foundation skills.   Check back for updates as we learn what type of home she will need.   Currently, due to her fear, no children under 10 years of age.

UPDATE 8/19/2016:   Bean is now spayed.   She did great at the vet clinic,  though she was afraid.   She is making strides  trusting humans; however, noises outside will send her bolting.  She will not recall as she searches for a safe place to hide.  She is fully crate trained and walks nicely on a leash.   Bean is not interacting with the other dogs; her preference is her human.  She is going to bond tightly to her person after she trusts them.   It’s nice to see her opening up from her shell.  She will be able to go to her forever home after she heals from her spay,  around 8/27.

UPDATE 8/29/2016:  Vanilla Bean has a deposit to hold her, after she had a successful meeting with her new family.   She will go to her forever home on 9/3/16.

UPDATE 9/6/2016:  Vanilla Bean is settling into her new home.  We will update after two weeks.

UPDATE 9/18/2016:  Vanilla Bean is officially adopted!!
