Hi!! Ready for some unconditional love? Ready to be my whole world the second you walk into my line of vision? I'm Flitchee and I am ready to be yours! I will keep you great company on your walks -- I love people and other dogs and soon I will have the whole neighborhood smiling at us as we walk down the street. I get so much joy out of the simple act of sniffing that my happiness is contagious. I am gentle and keep some comfortable slack in the leash, while perfecting the zig-zag choreography when excited and expressing my love with some exuberant tail-wagging.
I am very sweet - love to cuddle and to be petted. (Click here to see how I soak in the love.)
I am guessed to be a two-year-old, male, hound mix and I currently weigh about 45 lbs.
In foster care I had contact with a female dog my size and with a nine-year-old child and we got along great! I have probably had some periods of going hungry in the past, and as a result I have had some anxiety-counter-surfing going on, and have also let out the occasional lonely howl, but I am responding well to positive reinforcement training, and with proper care and regular feeding I am learning that I don't need to worry. Flitchee has been successfully crate trained and sleeps through the night.
I love mental stimulation in the form of sniffy walks, puzzle feeders and my favorite games: Up & Off and Bucket Game. I also love to run in your yard -- I will make sure that every inch of ground is covered!
See you soon!
Waiting to be yours,
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.
