-I’m shy towards strangers, but once I warm up I really like being with people!
-I’m am happy to lounge around the house while you work, but love when we go outside
-I’m a happy boy and will greet greet you with tail wags and wiggles
-I love to be petted , especially chin rubs and belly rubs
-I’m housetrained; I sometimes let out a "happy growl" and wag my tail when I wipe my paws on the ground after doing my business.
-I’m inseparable with OPH Millie ( click here to meet her!)
-Click here to see some happy wiggles!
You know what’s better than one dog? Two dogs! I was surrendered with my best pal Millie ….we are a bonded pair……and to be honest I cannot live without her. We are so in-sync we’re basically one dog; we can walk together, play together, and snuggle together. If you have room in your heart for two, apply for us today!
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.
