Meet Haro, a happy and playful Retriever mix pup who's ready to steal your hearts! This pretty 1-2 year-old is a well-trained girl who knows how to fetch, sit and shake! She has a very sweet temperament with people and dogs alike, and greets everyone with a warm smile! She loves attention and if you rub her head she will be your best friend for life.
Sadly, we discovered that Haro has a hip issue. When Haro runs, she runs like a bunny… and her hips don’t function properly. When she tries to sit, you can tell she is in pain. After visiting with one of our vet partners, we learned that Haro needed to have double hip surgery.
When OPH commits to a dog, we commit fully. We have always believed that when a dog is a part of the OPH family, they are with us forever – that is what family means! So we are beginning the long journey with Haro of getting her treated. Haro’s surgery will cost OPH $2,500. To help this beautiful girl, we need your help. We have set up the Help Haro Fund and are looking for caring supporters to help Haro live out her life and enjoy chasing balls and bringing love to everyone she meets.
While preparing for the surgery, volunteers who care for OPH dogs out of the kindness of their heart have shuttled her to vet appointments and made arrangements for this surgery. But now… we need to ask our OPH family to help Haro get the surgery she deserves and needs. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to help Haro.

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 Davidsonville, MD 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 Davidsonville.
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.
