#12063 Cairo

Adoption Pending
Small-size, Male, Young Terrier,

Hi, My name is Cairo and I'm coming to OPH on the Desert Animal transport on 8/5. I'm guessed to be a sweet 7 month Terrier mix and weigh about 20lbs. I am a sweet guy. I'm making my way North to find my family oasis in the desert. Is that with you? If so apply now I won't be available for long.

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.

Cairo is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Cairo is currently being fostered in King William, 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.
