#7789 Eriksen

Completed
Medium-size, Male, Adult Newfoundland Dog x Black Labrador Retriever,
Eriksen is up-to-date on his shots and has been neutered. Eriksen is currently being fostered in Boyds, MD.

Are you looking for your perfect copilot? Look no further. Eriksen wants to be by your side on all your adventures. He is approximately two years old, 45 pounds, appears to be a Newfoundland/Lab mix and loves to ride shotgun in the car.

He is a very happy, friendly boy who wants to be the first to greet you when you get home. He loves people and loves playing with other dogs. He also loves going on walks and exploring his surroundings. He is good on a leash and will follow your direction. He loves to snuggle and will curl up next to you for a good belly rub!

He is doing well with house training. His previous foster trained him to use a dog door. He also keeps his crate clean. He barks a bit when he first goes in to his crate, but he will settle down.

If you think Eriksen would make a good addition to your family, please apply to adopt him today!

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. 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. Read more about heartworm disease here https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics#q12.
