#9501 Lake Superior (Senior)

Medium-size, Male, Senior Dachshund,

Hi! My name is Lake Superior and I'm part of the Bodies of Water transport that came to OPH 6-12-20!

I'm guessed to be a low rider mix, maybe dachshund? I'm a sweet boy and I am about 7 years old and about 48lbs. I’m hoping to find a home that will help me drop and few pounds and increase my level of fitness. This will increase my quality of life, health and longevity. I’m a laid back guy who really likes to be pet and loved on. I’m house trained, crate trained and I get along with the other dogs in my foster home. 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. 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.

Lake Superior (Senior) is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Lake Superior (Senior) is currently being fostered in Union Bridge, 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.
