#12189 Marcy

Adoption Pending
Medium-size, Female, Adult Shepherd,

Hi, My name is Marcy and I'm coming to OPH on 9/9. I'm guessed to be a sweet 1 year Terrier/Shepherd mix and weigh about 20lbs. Here are some things to know about me so far.

* I'm a little timid to meet everyone but do wag my tail in hopes that you'll be friendly.
* I met a few dogs when I got off transport and I was very polite to them.
* I like to snuggle and am a great size for this!
* I'm good in my crate, so far.
* I've worked really hard and am no longer having accidents in the house.
* I love the other dogs in my foster home!
* I've met 4 children, ages 9-1, and did great with them.
* I love to snuggle and will keep your lap warm all winter 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.

Marcy is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. Marcy is currently being fostered in Hanover, PA.

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.
