I'm Dorian's Thomas! OPH helped evacuate me from a partner shelter in Hurricane Dorian's path. I was worried, but now I'm safe with OPH and looking for a home!
I'm a male pup, about a year old and 40 pounds. I appear to be a Border Collie mix. I've just arrived and the volunteers are still getting to know me. Check back for updates as I settle in, or apply to adopt me today! A nice pup as cute as I am won't be available for long!
OPH is partnering with Apple Dog Daycare in Glen Allen, VA to help Thomas. Apple generously donated boarding space so that OPH could bring Thomas north ahead of the storm.
This dog tested positive for Ehrlichia and Lymes before arriving to the rescue. Ehrlichia and Lymes are very common types of bacteria that infect dogs and other species and are spread by ticks. They are not contagious to humans or other pets. The only way to get either 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.
