I'm Charizard! I'm an adorable little guy! I'm about 2 years old, weigh just 8 pounds, and appear to be a Chihuahua mix. I' came to OPH on February 9 as part of the Pokemon themed transport. I love attention and to be picked up and snuggled. I tend to be a little nervous though so if I am outside you need to make sure I am in a secure fenced in area or have me outfitted with a secure harness or collar and leash. If something startles me, I will run and I can run fast! I get along well with dogs of all sizes and all the people I have met too. To know me is to love me!
I'm in search of someone to love. Will you be my Valentine? Apply to adopt me 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.
