Hi! My name is Sweetheart Chato and I'm part of the Sweetheart themed transport that arrived at OPH on 2-21-20! I'm guessed to be a Feist mix and I am about 1 year old. I'm a sweet girl, and I currently weigh about 25lbs. My foster says I am crate and house trained and usually walk nicely on leash. She says I sure do love getting attention and affection. I am still a young dog and have a lot of energy so an active family would be ideal for me. I made my way north 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. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. 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.
