#8838 Plank

Medium-size, Female, Adult Hound,
Plank is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. Plank is currently being fostered in Bowie, MD.

Hey there!! 🐾 My name is Plank (aka Momma) and I arrived at OPH on 1/31/20, as part of the last fitness transport in January 💪🏻 My puppies (Hanz & Franz) came to OPH a few weeks before that, and have already been adopted, so now it’s my turn 🤗 I made my way north in search of my forever family! If you think that’s with you, please apply today! I won’t be available for long...

I’m guessed to be a hound mix, but my foster mom did a little research and thinks I might be a Black Mouth Cur mix, more specifically (’s a hound dog breed. I’m estimated to be about 6 years old. I still have a good amount of energy for my age! I love to play, and I’m glad I have furry foster siblings to run around with! I can entertain myself too though - I throw my dog toys up in the air, then chase them around (it always makes my foster mom laugh) 🤣 My favorite toys are nylabones, but anything I can chew on works for me! I should tell you that I only chew on my dog toys, never any human-only items...I’m a good girl like that 😉 I’m house-trained and crate-trained, and go in my crate no problem when my foster mom goes to work...I even sleep in my crate 😴

I currently weigh about 35 lbs, so I’m a pint-sized package! I have a pretty solid build, and I’m a bit of a low-rider with my shorter legs. I have the cutest nub for a tail (there is literally almost nothing there), and my entire body wiggles when I get excited 😊 I do a lot of wiggling, I’m pretty happy-go-lucky!!

I’m a sweet girl, and have liked everyone I’ve met so far, but sometimes I take a little longer to warm up to people (dogs are no problem) 🐶 At a yoga fundraiser on the 9th, I was licking faces and sharing mats before you knew it (check out the pictures on my profile) 😁 At an adoption event on the 16th, I was quicker to go up to people to say hi 👋🏻...maybe because most of them had dogs. At an adoption event on the 22nd, I was even more comfortable with meeting new people!! I’m getting better 🎉

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.
