Hi! My name is Grand Teton and I'm part of the National Parks transport. I'm guessed to be a terrier mix and I weigh about 55lbs. I'm a sweet girl and I am about 4 years old. Being a former mother, I am gentle, loving, and protective. I love going on long walks, meeting new people and dogs (though a bit shy at first), and absolutely LOVE to cuddle. I'm athletic and love hanging out.
Grand Teton is a medical miracle. Her body has recovered from severe injuries in amazing ways naturally, which can be viewed as a testament to her physical strength and health as well as overall resilient nature of her character. She does cope with being crated, but it is not her favorite. She is playful, but doesn't play with toys. She is friendly with other humans as well as other pets so long as they're not aggressive. She is great walking companion - no pulls. Generally, she is the perfect balance of social and submissive. She is curious, but listens very well. She is also very intelligent and can be trained easily. She is mostly praise-driven, but a combination of praise and treat works best. She prefers to go to the bathroom off the leash so a fenced in yard would be ideal.
I've made my way north in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so apply today! I won't be available for long!
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.
