#12540 Mr. Precious

Medium-size, Male, Adult Boxer x Labrador Retriever,

They call me Mr. Precious because Mr. Wonderful was taken!

I'm guessed to be a 2-2.5 year old, 42 lbs, Boxer-Lab mix.

-I love to play and be social!
-I love to explore and run outside, consider me your new hiking buddy!
-I’m super dooper smart and love a good puzzle toy
-I don’t mind be leashed
-I’m working on my manner with places too tall for me to see
-Sighhh…and I’ll go into my crate if I have to

My foster mom says I am an extremely sweet boy! I aim to please! If you think I’m your paw-fect match, apply for me today!

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.

Mr. Precious is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Mr. Precious is currently being fostered in Lovettsville, 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.
