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. I am a sweet girl and I am about 2-3 years old and 43 lbs. After this nice lady picked me up, I finally made it to my new foster home where I will be staying until the new year. They tell me I have to get a treatment for heartworms. It's OK, I have made it this far and I plan to do just fine with the treatment. Here are some things that my foster mom has observed so far:
1. I go in my crate and sleep there without any problem. (However, I am a little stiff in the morning as I can't stretch out). I would prefer to sleep on a bed or couch.
2. House-trained in foster's home as long as she is on the ball. My crate is always dry.
3. I like to be outside in the sun, but also will rest on something soft inside.
4. I have a very deep hound bark that is loud when I use it.
5. I will play with the other resident dogs, but I am also happy to lay on the couch and watch the actions around the house. I like bully sticks, cheese stick, etc.
6. I like to take walks and explore ( I tug a bit on my leash, but I am learning to not pull- It is just those smells on the farm!)
7. I am happy to meet people and other dogs.
8. Not overly food motivated, but learning "Come and Sit,"
9. I do not have much if any obedience training. I have been shy so it has not been a problem, but each day as I get more comfortable I have been found jumping up on counters, chasing squires and would love to get at any deer if I could. I wasn't overly interested in the barn cat and barked mostly at the cows.
10. I need a house with a fenced yard, no apartments.
I look forward to meeting my new forever family/companion soon.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. 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.
