#10941 Splash Mountain

Adoptable
Medium-size, Female, Adult Carolina Dog x Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler),

Hi, My name is Splash Mountain and I’m part of the Disney Ride themed transport. Splash Mountain is a log flume at Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, and Magic Kingdom, based on the animated sequences of the 1946 Disney film Song of the South.

I’m guessed to be a Carolina/Red Heeler mix and I weigh about 45 lbs. I’m a sweet girl and I am 4 years old. I’m making my way north in search of my new family is that with you? If so apply today! I won’t be available for long.

Splash Mountain is a very sweet and beautiful girl but also a timid foster. Each day she is opening up a little more and accepting scratches without hesitation. She quickly meet my 3 personal dogs with a friendly sniff and totally ignored the cat hisses. She has accepted my husband and labeled him the "pushover with treats". She did well in the crate the first night but since it has been difficult to get her to enter the crate. She is very quick to learn the tricks and will ignore treats tossed in the crate knowing what the outcome will be. . She sleep very quietly in our bedroom and is not destructive at all. Splash Mountain appears to be potty trained with only a couple of accidents. Each time she goes outside she does her business right away. Splash Mountain has great leash manners, walks next to you, does not pull or back out of the collar. She had a quick reaction to a rabbit in the neighbors yard but did not charge after it.

Splash Mountain is not a cuddle I guess independent. She is very low key, loves to gives kisses and receive scratches. She does not jump on people, is learning basic commands and starting tp enjoy life and realizing not all homes are the same. She is starting to enjoy life. She does not show any interest in toys, Kongs or balls. Hopefully after heartworm treatment is over, this will probably change and she will feel more like herself.

She is a perfect house guest and looking forward to seeing her true personality in the coming weeks.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

Splash Mountain is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Splash Mountain is currently being fostered in Mechanicsville, VA.

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.
