Hi! My name is Whiskey! I am a quiet, shy boy but I love my foster family soooo much. I get really excited when I see them. I am shy, but not afraid. One time I tried to sneak out of my room and ran right into a HUGE adult dog. I loved him. I wasn't scared at all! I am about 4 pounds at 5.5 weeks, so I won't be too big. My mom is petite at only about 25 lbs and I don't know who dad is. I have a brother and a sister who are a bit bigger than me though so foster mom says it's hard to tell how big I will be.
Due to his small size and young age, we recommend that he goes to a home with children that are respectful of his size and age. Because he is a baby, he will require an adopter who is not out of the home for more than 4 hours at one time to continue his training - no exceptions! He is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and will need to be altered at the appropriate age per the spay/neuter agreement you will be signing at the time of adoption.
Please note that because he is so young, he has only received 2 sets of the required 3 sets puppy vaccinations. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that his immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. He MUST stay out of public places where he could be exposed to the germs of many other dogs for another 8-10 weeks after he goes home. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity
He is fostered in Parsonsburg, MD and ready for adoption as soon as May 11, 2019. Apply to adopt me today.
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.
