I am house trained, crate trained and know "sit."
I seek affection after warming up to a new person. Once I trust you, I'll greet you with a happy tail, wiggle butt, and kisses. I like to be with you to cuddle on sofa, receive belly rubs and ear scratches.
I need a patient owner that's willing to give me time to blossom, then I promise to love you forever.
I'm realizing I like toys, even the squeaky ones.

I love playing with the other dog in my foster home. We love to chase each other and play tug-a-war in the back yard. My foster mom says I would benefit from a confident, playful dog in the home and a fenced in yard.

I chase foster mom's cat so maybe a home with no cats? 😿 I do take redirection well so foster mom is not sure if I could be taught to respect kitties.

I enjoy walks and hikes, and don't pull AT ALL. I am the easiest dog to walk. My foster mom thinks I'll do well both in and out of the crate. Did I mention I'm the best coworker at home? I don't make a peep! Foster mom has only heard me bark a few times when playing with her dog.

I enjoy rawhide bones and frozen kongs. I'm also good girl with baths, grooming and getting nails trimmed.

I'll need a kid-free house - I love a quiet home. I mean, who doesn't? I have NEVER shown any signs of aggression or even growled. I’m very afraid of kids. My foster mom thinks I was mistreated by kids in my past.

Bismuth is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is best in a home without cats, is best in a home without small children, and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Bismuth is currently being fostered in Midlothian , 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.
