"Love-a-Lot Bear believes in the power of love, but is not afraid to help it along. He’s a handsome and perky bear who loves everything about love and tries to make it grow wherever he goes." Love-A-Lot really enjoys being in your lap, while he may be small enough now he may not realize his size when he grows up!
My mom appears to be a Husky and dad a German Shepherd. This makes me a "Shepsky"
"Shepsky's" are very smart, loving and loyal breed but do need to be exercised and worked. Please read a bit more about them to ensure this is the right breed for your home.
I am just a baby and my adopters should be respectful of my small size and puppy needs, such as not being left alone for more than 4 hours at a time, and to teach me proper manners with play, potty, leash walking and crating. In return, I promise to try really hard to make you proud and to give lots of puppy kisses!
Please note that because this puppy is so young, it will have just received its third distemper shot prior to adoption. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that the immune system will not be fully functioning until about 2 weeks after that third vaccine. Until then, the puppy MUST stay out of public places where it could be exposed to the germs of other dogs. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.
This puppy is microchipped and up to date on age appropriate vaccines and monthly preventatives and is available to go home as early as October 15, 2022.
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.
