#9143 Bugs Bunny

Large-size, Male, Adult Shepherd,

My name is Bugs Bunny. I was adopted for a year but my owner is moving to a city and he says I am much happier in the burbs. City life can be noisy and I do not like loud noises. True, I do prefer a more serene home life. But I am a really great dog and have loads of ❤️ to bring to a new home. I 💕 my people. I’m guessed to be a lab mix, about 5 yrs old and about 65lbs. I am well trained. I know lots of commands including here, sit, paw, come, yes, down, bed and more!

I am crate and house trained, after all I am five years young! I love sleeping in my crate all night.

I love going for walks with my foster dad. Sometimes I get overly excited when I see other dogs and he’s helping me to learn to stay calm. He says I have a strong prey drive because I want to chase every Squirrel I see.

My former owner said I am an incredibly people-focused dog, ❤️ cuddles, sitting on your lap, and just being by you.

And I thrive with having some sort of structure in my day that includes training to keep my skills sharp. That is fun for me! I 💕 walks and being outside. I do like to play fetch!

I may be best in a cat free home. And I may be enough of an awesome companion to be your one and only one dog. I do like to be around dogs that are well behaved. My favorite thing is going to the dog park to play with them.

I may sometimes guard my food and treats so I am best suited for with children above the age of 12. Resource guarding is common with rescue dogs and very manageable.

If you are looking for a cuddly, well trained dog and live in a rural/suburban area, we can be a perfect match!

Bugs Bunny is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He is best in a home without cats and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Bugs Bunny is currently being fostered in Ellicott City, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

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.
