Hi! My name is Beth Bear and I'm part of the Muppets themed transport. I'm guessed to be a 4 year old Hound mix. I'm a sweet girl and I currently weigh 35lbs. Here are some things to know about me.
* I'm a tall girl and need to put on between 5 and 10lbs.
* My foster family is calling me Gertie, my shelter name.
* I am fully crate trained and mostly house trained.
* I am doing great with the other dogs in my foster home. I'm trying to get them to play by doing the play bow.
* While I haven't play with many toys, I have picked up some bones to chew on.
* I take treats very gently and don't jump on anyone.
* I love to be scratched and found out that the couch is perfect for snuggling!
* I also love to lay in the sun on a dog bed.
* So far, I haven't barked or made any noises.
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.
