My name is X's and O's. My foster family just calls me momma. I was found in Alabama and very scared. I learned to trust one of the volunteers there and then I had babies, I didn't even tell anyone I was pregnant! I traveled to OPH with 3 little babies, raised them and they moved on to their forever families. Now I need one of my own. I am about 1 or 2 yrs old and 12lbs
It takes me some time to get to know people and trust them, but once I do you better make sure there is room near you at all times, I love to snuggle but I am okay if I can't be IN your lap all the time.
I am fostered with several dogs my size and some much larger. Some are a lot older than me and others are just babies. But I like them all. I get a little timid around new people and sometimes active kids are scary, so I bark at them and then run away. I am crate trained, although only use the crate sometimes now because foster mom says she trusts me.
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. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. 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.

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.
