Hi! My name is Triathlon Triathlon, but my foster calls me Gus. I'm a people-loving dog. My foster says I have a quiet personality with glimpses of adolescence that come through when I am super excited. I am very affectionate towards my people, try to sneak as many kisses as possible, and love to snuggle up in your lap. I know "sit" and have recently been working on loose leash walking and have learned "look at me". My foster says I am a smart dog and pick up on commands and directions quickly. I enjoy walks and would seem to make an excellent running partner. I'm guessed to be a shepherd mix and I am about 3 years old. I currently weigh about 64lbs. I'm in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so apply today! I won't be available for long!
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.
