I'm Maid Marian ! I'm about 4 years old, 71 pounds, and I appear to be a German Shepherd mix. I am a sweet girl who aims to please! I love attention, but I also love a good nap. I love belly rubs and nice walks. I love meeting new neighbors. I am getting along well with my foster mom’s three dogs. I am good and quiet in my crate. I know some basic commands and I am motivated by treats to learn more. I respond to the name Tessie, my name at the shelter. I am doing well with my house training and haven’t had any recent accidents. I would love to have a family to call my own. If you are looking for a girl like me, please apply. I’d 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 has treated the dog and will provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. She will be ready to go home July 10th. 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'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.
