Hi my name is Nashville and I came to OPH in search of a family to call my own. I am estimated to be seven years old and a Retriever mix. My foster mom said I'm doing well in her home and I'm just a sweet, calm boy! I love to be outside in the backyard where I can enjoy the scenery and watch the neighborhood goings-on. I really like the other large dog in the house and LOVE the two young kids here! I'm learning to walk on a leash (foster mom thinks I may not have been on one before) but I don't pull and I try to use my best manners. I even go into my crate to nap but would much prefer to spend time with my people. Foster mom says I have the most soulful eyes and she thinks I'll make a great family pet. Apply to adopt me today!
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving at OPH and has since completed treatment. 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.
This dog tested positive for Lyme before arriving to the rescue. Lymes is a very common type of bacteria that infects dogs and other species and is spread by ticks. Lymes is not contagious to humans or other pets. The only way to get this disease is to be bitten by a tick that carries it. The treatment is typically 21-30 days of antibiotics. This dog started treatment upon arriving to the rescue.
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.
