Hi, My name is Viper. (Don't let my OPH name fool you. I'm a friendly, easy-going, dog!) I'm guessed to be a sweet 2 year old hound mix and weigh about 45lbs. I am a sweet guy, just arrived on September 9 to Rockville, Maryland. I'm getting my bearings here, but feeling happy.
I love affection, I'm easy to manage on the leash, I don't bark much, and well, I'm awfully handsome, aren't I? I'm buddies with Quincy. We're fostering together, have known each other a while and we get along great.
Also, I've already met some people outside the house. They take to me, I take to them. It's mutual!
I have a little medical thing to get through (see below) but shortly after that I'll be ready to find my permanent home. Looking for a kind hearted human or human family to give me a happy life! I'll make it worth your while, promise!
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

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.
