My name is Niffler! I’m guessed to be a lab/hound mix and estimated to be about 2 years old. I currently weigh about 45 lbs. and need to gain a few more pounds. I'm a very sweet boy, but all of these new things are a little scary for me. I'm learning to trust people. I'm also learning how to live in a house. My foster dog brother and sisters have really been helping me with that. I am looking for someone who will continue to help me grow and learn. I would also love a fur brother or sister to show me the ropes in my new home. I am food motivated and foster mom says this will help people make friends with me and it will help me learn. I just say keep the hot dogs and treat coming!
Niffler is currently in the Happy Hounds Prison Dog Program, follow his progress here:
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.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.
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.
