Energy Level 4 - Needs 1 hour of a mixture of off-leash playtime and or mental stimulation every day.
Hi! My name is McKnight and I recently arrived at OPH in search of a family of my own. I’m a male guessed to be born on 9/8/23 and currently weigh about 15 lbs. I'm listed by the shelter vet as a mixed breed dog but foster mom says I look like I might be part Chihuahua. I have a brindle face and legs and am very friendly and love to give lots and lots of kisses. I am a pretty energetic guy so far and would enjoy walks and play time with my new family.
I'm microchipped, neuthered and up to date on my vaccinations and preventatives. Apply to meet me now - you'll be glad you did!
I'm searching for...
* someone who won't leave me home alone for more than 4 hrs, at least not until I am older. The older I am the more I can stay home alone. I just don't want you to get mad at me if I have accidents or chew things I'm not supposed to when you leave me for too long. I'm a puppy, so I get bored quick and when I'm bored I could get in trouble.
* I am looking for my forever home, not my for right now home. So as I get bigger I need someone to teach me how to be the best dog I can be. I am young and still learning. You may want to teach me some new tricks like sit, stay, etc. Professional training will help me bond with you. That sounds like fun!
* I saved the most important for last. I am hoping my new mom or dad will snuggle with me, play with me and love me forever and ever!
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.
