Hula Hoop is a sweetheart. She's a gentle dog, but very much still a puppy. She loves her chew toys and enjoys playing with other dogs. She's crate trained, housebroken. and excellent on a leash.
She had puppies on 11/29/18 and as she regains her svelte figure, her energy is increasing. She is a submissive dog, who seems to like everyone she meets. She's treat motivated and LOVES food.
We are working on her habit of jumping up (to give hugs or check out the counter), but even that is done gently. She looks and moves like a border collie, but so far, doesn't have that kind of intensity. She's been great with all dogs and people (all ages), but hasn't had any real contact with cats.
This is an awesome dog, very devoted to her people.
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 Ashland, VA 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 Ashland.
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.
