Hi! My name is Freedom Group Exercise but you can call me FGE for short.
I'm guessed to be a shepherd mix- approximately 2 years old. I'm a sweet boy and I currently weigh around 50lbs. I love to please and would love to be by your side wherever you go. I appear to be housebroken and like to go for car rides. When you pat me I lean my head on you because I'm so grateful to have someone to belong to. I am full of energy & i tend to pull when walking & I'm pretty strong for my size, so I need someone that can handle me on a leash. I don't tire easily since i'm young & very puppy-like. I like LOTS of walks & exercise otherwise I get bored at home & can get mouthy if i don't have things to chew- like bones, chews, or toys. I do enjoy fetch & will bring the ball back to you, especially with some encouragement. After getting outside & properly exercised, I will chill out & lie down next to you like a lapdog. I am very outgoing & enjoy meeting new people- children too, but I can be jumpy sometimes when I'm overly excited. I also like to play with other dogs & will bark sometimes when I want to communicate, but i'm a nice dog- just vocal at times. I do like my crate and will stay nice & quiet & sleep in it through the night.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

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.
