I'm Hurricane Florence's Kassandra! OPH evacuated me from a partner shelter in Hurricane Florence's path. I am a lovable, gentle, chill girl and a wonderful family dog. I'm approximately 5 years old and about 55 pounds. I appear to be a Lab mix. I currently live in a home with 4 children. I am well behaved and crate free and sometimes hang out in my crate. I am so gentle, I take a treat nicely from your hand. My foster mom says I have excellent house manners. I love to go for walks. I get along well with other dogs that I have met so far. I am looking for a home where I will be loved. I love my people and loved to be petted by them. I would be a good companion dog too. Do I sound like your ideal dog? If so, I would love to meet you!
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.
