Hi! My name is Honoring Delmar Johnson and I came to OPH as part of a Veterans Day Memorial transport. I'm named after a U.S. Veteran. My foster family calls me Del, just like my namesake was called.
I'm guessed to be a 2-year old beagle/hound mix. My foster Mom thinks I might have some Spaniel in me too. She says the freckles on my nose are adorable. I'm a very sweet boy who weighs about 30lbs. In my foster home, I am kept on a regular schedule of going outside so that I do not have accidents in the house. I also walk very well on my leash. I stay right next to my foster Mom when we're walking and I don't pull at all! I am learning that my crate is my safe and happy place. I used to bark a lot when I went in there, but I don't mind it any more and only bark once or twice when I go in (and sometimes not at all!). That's where I eat my meals and sometimes I get a Kong!
I love to cuddle and am very affectionate! I enjoy the company of my foster sister, and I REALLY enjoy attention from my foster parents. I like to to follow them wherever they go and want to be with them all the time. They say I have a nice energy level...not too much and not too little! I like the long walks we take every morning. I also enjoy playing with my foster sister and all of the toys in my foster home. And I like to nap on all of the soft places I've found! Like most young dogs, I will need some basic training to learn good manners. Sometimes I'm so happy I just jump for joy, all four feet off the ground! But I'm very gentle and I'm learning to control my excitement. I have met lots of dogs and people so far, and I've really enjoyed all of them. I just like attention!
Right now my favorite pastime is being with my foster family and enjoying all of the attention they give me. I really am an expert when it comes to cuddling! I made my freedom flight north in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so apply today! I won't be available for long!
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.
