Hi! My name is Sweet Gum. I'm coming to OPH on 10/22 on the fall leaves transport and named after the Sassafras tree. I'm guessed to be a chihuahua mix and about 3 years old. I'm a sweet girl and I currently weigh around 13 lbs. I get along well with the other dogs at my foster home and I like to run and play. I have quite a bit of energy when I want to play and I can run fast and easily jump up on a surface 2 and 1/2 feet off the ground. But there are times I calm down and I am quiet as a mouse at bedtime. I like toys. I can be a little shy and skittish around humans at first, but I warm up quickly. I have made my way north in search of a new family. Is that with you? If so apply today! I won't be available for long!
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.
