Say hello to Miss Lyndz! She is about 5 years old and believed to be a boxer, papillon/beagle mix. Miss Lyndz came to OPH and gave birth to a litter of puppies, who were all adopted. Now mama needs to find a forever home of her own!
Miss Lyndz's foster mom says Miss Lyndz is slow to warm up to new people, but once she does, she wants to be by their side constantly. She is working on her manners and learning commands. She thrives off interactions with others dogs, following their lead in order to learn to trust new people and feel comfortable in new situations. Therefore, Miss Lyndz definitely needs a home with at least one other dog.
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease. 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.
