Adoptable

Dorian's Penny is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. Dorian's Penny is currently being fostered in Nokesville, VA.

Everyone could use a few more pennies in their life, am I right? Well how about just ONE Penny? Hi, I'm Dorian's Penny. I was evacuated from a shelter in NC that was projected to be in Hurricane Dorian's path. I am about 3 years old and weigh about 45lbs. I could be part collie part Hound mix. My foster Mom says that I have come a long way in a few weeks!

My foster Momma says at her house:
- I am good in my crate, and have gotten better going in there on my own. My foster Mom feeds me in there and gives me the BEST treats in there so it has been a happy place to go to!
- I haven't had any accidents in my crate.
- I am a bit timid, but I am working on learning trust. I now happy prance when foster Momma takes me outside instead of "Pancaking" myself to the ground.
- Treats are REALLY yummy and I'd like to have more please!
- I finally started to show interest in toys, but please don't ask me to fetch, I'm not interested in that. Maybe someone will adopt me and teach me how to fetch!

Foster Momma doesn't know what happened to me before I got to the shelter. I can't tell her, but she says she doesn't think I've had an easy life. Don't worry she is helping mend my heart with love. I went to the dog park and tried to make some friends today (9.15.19), I sniffed and trotted with some dogs. My favorite part was there were so many new people to pet me! If you are interested in me, please apply today. I am looking for a family to call my own. Could that be you?

This dog tested positive for Ehrlichia before arriving to the rescue. Ehrlichia is a very common type of bacteria that infects dogs and other species and is spread by ticks. Ehrlichia 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.
