Hi! I'm Red Hot and I am hot on the trail looking for my furever home! Do you want it to be you??? Everyone keeps telling me how beautiful I am, I'm thought to be a Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd mix and a young estimated 4 years of age, approximately 65 pounds.
My foster mom says that I am so great and thinks everyone should love me, but she wants to make sure I find a great family that can give me everything I need! She tells me I have a high IQ, I don't know what that means, but she says that I'm really smart. I'm pretty sure she is right, I am always on the lookout for directions and guidance. I really want someone that will teach me commands and tricks, because I know I would be really good at learning.
Do you like walking or hiking? Because I do! It is probably my favorite thing to do, especially if you take me into the woods, I LOVE walking the trails, being in touch with nature, following the scent of cool animals, climbing on falling trees, and right now blending in with the color of the beautiful fall leaves!
Do I meet some of your requirements? If so, I have a few of my own too. I really need to be with an active family and I really need space in a yard with a secure fence. Right now I'm not fond of small animals, I'm not sure if they are toys or friends so probably not a home with those. My foster mom thinks I need an experienced dog owner, but I'm willing to go with a first timer too as long as you understand my needs!! I can't wait to meet you, I love meeting new friends. Apply quick, I think I will go fast!
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.
