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.
