Hi! My name is Sumatran Rhinoceros and I’m guessed to be a 3-4 year old lab/hound mix. I’m a sweet boy with big, velvety ears and I currently weigh about 75 lbs. I am named after the Sumatran Rhinoceros, the smallest of the living rhinoceroses and the only Asian rhino with two horns.
Bring on the love because this guy is looking for some new best friends! Rhino is a big, sweet, and loving dog that will stand by your side for as long as you are willing to pet him. And maybe just a little longer to make sure you really are done. He is true to the hound breed and follow's his nose. Sometimes that gets him into a little bit of trouble but he is so eager to please that he is willing to learn new things to make his people happy. Rhino sleeps through the night in his crate and will let you know if he needs to go to the bathroom. He is great with his foster's children but would do better in a home with kids that are 7 years old and up because of his size. Rhino has a tendency to jump up to "hug" his favorite people. In his foster's home this is on the oh no, no list and he is quickly learning that he'll get all the love he needs when he sits down instead. He loves to play with other dogs of all sizes and would be great with or without a canine sibling. He's looking for a loving adopter but also someone who can give him consistency and boundaries. 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.
