Hi! My name is Greenland Shark and I'm an 11-month-old Heeler mix.

Click here, here, and here to see me in action!

Want to know more about me? Read on!

- I'm a smoll boy - I only weigh 20 lbs!
- I am crate-trained and truly love spending time in my crate - it's my safe space!
- I'm potty-trained on pee pads indoors - I'll try the outdoors when I gain some more confidence
- I sleep through the night in my crate without a peep
- I am so so so gentle
- When I get spooked by loud noises (like my foster mom's vacuum!), I will chill in my crate
- I'm getting braver with new experiences every day! Right now, my favorite things are: plush toys, hard bones, and treats... I always get treats from my foster dad
- I'm very quiet and my foster mom has only heard me bark once
- I like to graze on my food throughout the day so please leave a bowl of food out for me... who doesn't like to snack?
- I LOVE naps - I take multiple naps in my crate throughout the day while my foster mom works from home
- Give me some time to warm up and I'll show you that I'm a total wiggle butt who also loves to snuggle <3

I am searching for my forever family. Is that with you? If so - apply today, I will not be available for long!

Greenland Shark is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Greenland Shark is currently being fostered in Alexandria, 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.
