#12059 Elffie

Adoption Pending
Medium-size, Male, Adult Shepherd,

Hi, My name is Elffie. I am said to be a 1 year old and about 40lbs, Shepherd Mix.

Click here to see me in action!

I haven't been in foster care very long so my foster Mom can't tell you much about me yet, but she says I'm such a sweetheart. I like to give hugs. I like treats. I have been eating pretty well.

If you are interested, put in an application. I'm sure to be snatched up pretty quickly!

"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.

Elffie is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has not yet been neutered. He is best in a home without cats. Elffie is currently being fostered in Nokesville, 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.
