Hi! My name is Imperio, and I am a 13 week old sweet girl who will be available for adoption soon! I am guessed to be a beagle mix and weigh 15 pounds right now, I’ll likely be a medium sized dog when I grow up!
Click here to see me playing with my foster friend!
My foster mom says I am a sweet and goofy girl! I love belly rubs, being near humans and the resident dog in my foster home. At first I was so shy, but within a few days opened up with a big, mischievous, hilarious personality! I have been working on potty training for only a few days but I am catching on very quickly! I currently need to get up once in the middle of the night for a bathroom break but I think soon I'll be able to make it all night. I sleep well in my crate, too!.
I am just a baby and my adopters should be respectful of my small size and puppy needs, such as not being left alone for more than 4 hours at a time, and to teach me proper manners with play, potty, leash walking and crating. In return, I promise to try really hard to make you proud and to give lots of puppy kisses!
Please note that because this puppy is so young, it has only received 2 of the required 3 puppy distemper vaccinations. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that the immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. Until then, the puppy MUST stay out of public places where it could be exposed to the germs of other dogs. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.
This puppy is microchipped and up to date on age appropriate vaccines and monthly preventatives. This puppy is fostered in Alexandria, VA and will be ready to go home as soon as 7 May.
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.
