Hi, I’m Seville! I’m a shepherd mix, about 3 years old and 55 pounds.
I love everyone I meet and I just want to be part of the family. I am good in my crate and housetrained in my foster home. I don’t jump, but sometimes I might paw to get attention and make sure you haven’t forgotten that I’m here. I am not much of a barker, only when I see critters on my walks.
Speaking of walks, I recently had surgery for hip dysplasia. The vet says I am doing really well and should make a full recovery. Yay me! I just need some more time to develop my muscles. But don’t worry – you don’t need a home gym to help me do that. Just short leash walks and time, then I should be able to handle long walks and hikes with you!
Even though I’ve had some challenges since coming to OPH, my foster mom says I have been nothing but sweet and gentle, tolerating all of the hard stuff I’ve had to go through. I live in a busy house with lots of kiddos and love them all but prefer bigger kids. I am ok with other dogs but would prefer to have a forever home all to myself. Now that I’m healthy, it’s time for me to find my forever home. Is that with you?
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue and has since been treated. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. 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.
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.
