#8694 Veera Desi Dog

Medium-size, Female, Adult Labrador Retriever x Whippet,
Veera Desi Dog is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. Veera Desi Dog is currently being fostered in Parsonsburg, MD.

Hi, I’m Veera! I am one year old and and weigh about 29 lbs. I am a "Desi Dog" (a local term for "street dog") from India in search of a home of my own. I was found as a tiny puppy living alone on the street after my mom and all my siblings died. I was rescued by Kannan Animal Welfare (KAW), a local animal welfare group in New Delhi. Now I am in search of a forever home!

Foster mom says I am a sweetheart who loves all the dogs, kids and people who come and go in my foster home. My favorite activities include wrestling with my foster siblings, kissing my foster mom and snuggling as close as I can to her. I love the outdoors and now that the weather is getting nicer, I get to go on long walks with my foster family. I really enjoy all toys, destuffing is my favorite, followed by a little game of tug o'war.

I am a healthy, young, dog who can be active when you want me to be or lazy when you need me to be. The freckles you see on my face, arn't actually freckles. But when I was living in India they thought maybe I had allergies causing my hair loss. I went to the vet once I arrived in the states and the veterinarian said I have demodex, which was treated on the spot and now my itchiness is gone and my hair is slowly coming back.

If you are looking for your first dog or your 10th dog, I would be a good fit. I am crate trained and doing well with housebreaking too! Foster mom is trying to teach me new things like sit, stay, down and off. I am super treat motivated, so I am making it easy on her.

Apply today, because 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.
