Pups at play

I'm searching for...
* Someone who won't leave me home alone for more than 4 hrs, at least not until I am older. The older I am the more I can stay home alone. I just don't want you to get mad at me if I have accidents or chew things I'm not supposed to when you leave me for too long. I'm a puppy, so I get bored quick and when I'm bored I could get in trouble.
* I need someone who knows how important it is that I don't go to public places until I have all my shots. I will only have 2 of my required 3 shots when I go home. So since I am not fully vaccinated yet, I could get sick. My foster mom will explain in more detail if you choose me.
* I am looking for my forever home, not my for right now home. So as I get bigger I need someone to teach me how to be the best dog I can be. My mommy has taught me a lot, but I am young and still learning. You may want to teach me some new tricks like sit, stay, etc. My foster mom says professional training will help me bond with you. That sounds like fun!
* I saved the most important for last. I am hoping my new mom or dad will snuggle with me, play with me and love me forever and ever!

Gene (Tuxedo Pups) is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has not yet been neutered. Gene (Tuxedo Pups) is currently being fostered in Frederick, MD.

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.
