Hi, my name is Lily and I arrived at OPH in April with my 6 pups. Now they have all been adopted and I'm ready for a home of my own. I'm listed as a Terrier mix and have super short fur and my foster mom says my low profile and long, funky ears remind her of a Border Collie or other herding dog. I currently weigh about 36 lbs.
I'm playful and enjoying running around the yard with the other dogs in the house and really enjoy wrestling with the smallest one. But I'm also content to play by myself with a toy and will pounce on it, toss it around and settle in to chew on it. I haven't had any accidents since I came into the house and I'm quiet in my pen area. Foster dad says I walk well on a leash and stay by his side and sometime like to sniff but if I get ahead of him I turn to look back to make sure he's still coming! I'm polite when I pass people and dogs on a walk and I enjoy pack walking with my foster's dogs, too. I'm very affectionate and love to snuggle next to my foster dad or mom on the couch, or in the dog bed with another dog. I'm a little protective when meeting new people entering the house so slow introductions with me on leash is the best way to introduce me to them. Once I get to sniff them and understand they're friendly then I'm their best buddy.
I am spayed, microchipped and up to date on my vaccines and monthly preventatives. I'm available to go home with my new owners on June 18th -- two weeks after my heartworm treatment. Apply to meet me today!
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. The dog was treated for the disease prior to transport north. 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. Read more about heartworm disease here
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.
