My name is Horchata de Arroz and I am part of OPH's Mexican food themed transport. I am about 6 months old, as if June 25. I am thought to be a lab mix. I’m a sweet, friendly, happy boy and I currently weigh about 30 pounds.
I am named after Horchata de Arroz, a traditional Mexican drink made up of white rice soaked in water that is flavored with cinnamon and its sweetened with granulated sugar.
I am a happy go lucky puppy! I have the cutest ears that flop over. Want a low maintenance puppy? It's me! I don't need a lot of grooming other than the occasional bath and a good brushing! Give me some chew toys or a good squeaky and I will entertain myself for a bit. Take me outside and throw a ball with me!
I am enjoying playing with my foster sister who is about twice my size.
I am a puppy, therefore I like to.....
Use my mouth for everything.
I am learning not to potty in house.
So far, I only chew dog toys
The cat hit me once, so I try not to bother him. He is. fun to sniff though. I leave him alone when I am told.
I am crated at night and settle down quickly.
I have slept through the night without needing a potty break so far.
During the day, I am crated. I also settle down and am fine while my foster mom is gone.
So far, I am a puller on leash. I love treats and will look to you to find out what I have to do to get that treat. I would love to take a training class with you!
I am going to need guidance with some manners, but together we will learn and at the end of the day I will curl up next to you.
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.
