Hi, I’m Gudda! I am one year old and weigh about 35 lbs. I am a "Desi Dog" (a local term for native street dog) from India in search of a home of my own. I was hit by a car while living on the street in New Delhi, India, I was found with a broken leg and rescued by Kannan Animal Welfare (KAW), a local animal welfare group in New Delhi, who nursed me back to health. Now I have come to the U.S. to find a forever home of my own!
I am a playful, affectionate, and sweet girl! I am potty-trained and I do okay in a crate (though I'd rather be next to you!). I've met lots of other dogs, and even gone to dog parks, and I've been great! I'm submissive with other dogs and like to give them kisses on the nose. I warm up to people (including children) very quickly. Did I mention that I LOVE belly rubs?? I walk well on a leash and love to roll in the grass!

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.
