Hi! My name is Remembering Riley. I arrived to OPH 9/24 on the RMT Transport, named in honor of all the homeless pets waiting for forever homes in animal shelters and those who didn't make it out.
Pawsome things about me:
~ I'm guessed to be a hound mix
~ The vet and rescue folks guess that I am about 4 years old
~ I came to OPH from South Carolina
~ I love cuddles
~ I get along well with other dogs
~ I’m super gentle
~ I weigh about 31 pounds. The PERFECT size!
~ I like to play and can be energetic
~ I can also be quiet and calm
~ I appear to be house trained, although I like to walk a bit before finding the perfect place to do my business outside
~ I’m kid friendly
I'm in search of a new family. Is that you? If so, apply today! I won't be available for long!
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. The dog was treated for the disease prior to transport north. 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. Read more about heartworm disease here.
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.
