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 said to be a German Shepherd mix but my foster mom thinks I may also have some Belgian Malinois in me too! I am a younger girl, estimated 4 years of age (although some people think I'm more like 2yo), approximately 60 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 fallen 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 and while I liked other dogs at th shelter I may need to regroup and have proper introductions with other dog friends. 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'm not all business though, I'm a goofball, love showing off my funny sense of humor and will make you laugh! I also like checking myself out in my foster mom's mirror. I'm pretty cute right? And don't forget the snuggles and belly rubs. I know how to relax and lounge on the bed or couch and really like getting my belly rubbed. Added bonus is I'm crate trained (I'll cry a little at first bc I already miss you, and when you come to let me out I get really excited! But am really calm during the inbetween) and I'm housebroken at my current place! See I'm a real gem!
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. 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.
