#11963 Bonnie Girl

Medium-size, Female, Adult Mountain Cur,

Hi my name is Bonnie Girl. I'm thought to be a Mountain Cur mix about 3 years old and I currently weigh 43 lbs. I have a lovely brindle coat that's very short and I'm just the right size for any home.

Until OPH rescued me, I spent my whole life chained or caged outside so lots of things are new to me and it takes me awhile to get used to them. Foster mom says even though I might be nervous around new things I'm a quiet girl and keep my kennel clean. I'm doing better every day learning to walk on a leash and even though its scary to go past the house and cars once I'm in the open I put my nose to the ground and enjoy the walk. I love the other dogs at the foster home and enjoy taking walks with them and playing with them in the fenced yard. I'm very comfortable with my foster mom and come around her all the time for pets . Foster mom says I'm a flight risk-- I'm not sure what that means-- I think it's just because when I'm around new things I try to hide or get away. But she said if somebody's willing to teach me that everything is not scary and give me time to get used to new things, I'm going to make a very nice family pet.

See me in action here:

I'm spayed, microchipped and current on my vaccines and monthly preventatives and ready for a home of my own.

Bonnie Girl is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. Bonnie Girl is currently being fostered in Craigsville , 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 Ashland, VA 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 Ashland.

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.
