Meet Timothy

Basic Information

New to OCDRT on 1/15/2016 from an eastern Ohio shelter. Timothy is being fostered in Massillon OH. Timothy is a 6 year old neutered male who was originally surrendered to the shelter for wandering away to a local business for lunch. He was then adopted, but returned 6 weeks later, for chasing the cat and not being house trained. We will update his vaccines, micro-chip, 4DX test, and de-worming program. As you can see Timothy will also go on a food reduction and exercise program, he weighed in at 88#. Timothy was raised outdoors on a farm so he had his own life rules, but he is going to learn the comforts of living inside, crate training, house training, living with cats, foundation skills, & traveling in a vehicle, all of which will be new to him.

Please check back as we get to know him over the next 2 – 3 weeks.

Timothy has meet all 3 resident cats and chooses to ignore them or just sniff and walk away. He has also proven he is house trained and asks to go out to go potty. He's been a gentleman with the resident ACDs and enjoys playing with the male, while respecting the female's request to be left alone. Timothy is taking well to crate training and indoor living! This is one of those males you always hope you get to meet.

Timothy had a Thyroid panel completed and his results came back normal. So it seems Sir Timothy was just a very overfed dog. His 4DX results are also negative!

Timothy remains the sweet boy he was the first day we received him. He recently spent a week in a “spa” while his foster family was on vacation and he did exceptionally well. The staff loved him and said he enjoyed all the dogs he was allowed to play with and had a wagging tail the entire time. He is back with his foster family and integrated right back in. Timothy enjoys being outside with his people and walks extremely well on a leash. Timothy is waiting for the lucky family to call his own! Also, we are happy to report that Timothy has lost 4 pounds since being with OCDRT and is on his way to a svelte new look!

Timothy has been accepted into a Service Dog Program and will be adopted out via this program. We are happy an ACD was chosen for their program, what an opportunity for Timothy and his future Veteran Adopter.
