Whisper is new to OCDRT on 8/21/2016 from Northern Ohio.
Whisper is being fostered in Creston, Ohio.
Whisper is a deaf 9 month old female ACD, who was owner surrendered due to life circumstances at this time. She was born on 11/12/2015 & her owners took very good care of her physically and mentally. Whisper lived with 3 children under 10 years of age and another dog. She is started in training with a vibration collar for recalls along with basic obedience. While with us she will learn crate training, foundation skills, basic manners, walking on a leash, and social manners. Whisper will be spayed & micro-chipped on 8/31. Please check back for updates as we get to know Whisper better. ACD experience & a fenced yard is necessary for her adoption.
UPDATE 9/6/2016: Whisper is now fully vetted and ready to meet a very active adopter. She is not only physically active, but she needs a lot of mental stimulation. Teaching her to 'settle' also helps this busy bee learn to be content when she has to wait to do something. She loves her crate time and goes right to sleep. She is learning better leash skills and will need an adopter to continue to work with her in these areas. Whisper came to us really obsessed with shadows. She is learning there is more to life & is open to learning anything you wish to teach her. She is in foster care with 2 other ACDs and loves to play with them.
UPDATE 10/1/2016: Whisper had a meeting with an approved adopter which went very well. She has a deposit to hold her until she can go home the weekend of 10/22.

PLEASE NOTE: This Rescue is not a public shelter. This dog is being fostered in a private home until adoption. Our fosters are adopted on first come, first serve basis, with applications being processed in the order received. If approved for adoption, a deposit is required to hold the dog until a meeting can be arranged. We do require prospective adopters to travel to the home of the foster dog along with all family members, including any resident dog(s). This is the only way to see the known temperament of our fosters dogs, while they are in the home they feel is 'their's'. Any behavior concerns with meeting new people/dog(s) on their home 'turf' will be visible at the meeting.
