Hi! My name is Gumball and I am part of the candy theme transport coming to OPH on 11-20-20
I am guessed to be a hound mix although my foster mom thinks I am also part hound since I look like a hound and my nose is glued to the ground on walks. I am a sweet girl and I am about 2-3 years old and 43 lbs.
I like to spend most of my time in the crate with the door open. I am working on my potty training but my leash manners are pretty good. I only pull when my nose detects something that could be fun! I'm curious about the other dogs in the house because I want to be their friend and play. I love the teen boys in the house and enjoy snuggling with them. Check back on me soon as I am slowly getting used to this new place and environment.
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
