#11909 Gaboon Viper

Large-size, Male, Adult Shepherd,
Energy Level 1

Energy Level 1 - Is it time for a nap yet? Prefers naps over walks.

I like to cuddle! I like to be your big teddy bear!
Gaboon Viper is a low energy dog that enjoy lying down in a crate, a corner or on a couch. He is an easy dog that does not require walks longer than 15 minutes. Fully house-trained. No potty accidents and no chewing behavior in foster's home. He is friendly with other dogs, cats and children. He is a little shy when he meets new people but he is very sweet when he warms up.

I’m guessed to be a 3 year old shepherd mix. I’m a sweet, friendly, happy boy and I currently weigh about 74 lbs.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

Gaboon Viper is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Gaboon Viper is currently being fostered in Rockville, 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.
