#10799 Niffler

Medium-size, Male, Adult Labrador Retriever x Hound,
Energy Level 3

Energy Level 3 - Enjoys walks, mental stimulation, and some playtime.

Hi, my name is Niffler! I’m guessed to be a lab/hound mix and my foster family thinks I am also part boxer. I am estimated to be about 2 years old. I weigh about 45 lbs. I'm a very sweet and smart boy. I've had the amazing opportunity to participate in the Happy Hounds Prison Dog Program and I've learned so much! My handler taught me sit, down, wait, stay, and paw. I also have a great recall. I'm very treat motivated so training is fun. I LOVE to spend time outside in a yard and will even entertain myself with a rope toy, ball, or stuffy. I also enjoy a good bone to chew on. I'm also crate trained and house broken.

Life before OPH and HHPDP was scary. I've been learning to open up and trust people. I have been fostered in a home with other dogs and I would love a fur sibling in my furever home to show me the ropes.

All I need is someone to give me a chance. Once I am comfortable and trust someone I am very fun and loving.

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. Read about heartworm disease here: here

Niffler is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He is best in a home without small children and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Niffler is currently being fostered in New Freedom, PA.

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.
