My name is Cucumber Falls. I am a hound mix and estimated to be about 3years old. I currently weigh about 50 lbs.
I am a gentle soul and am learning new things every day. I let my foster parents know when I need to go outside and have had only a few little accidents when I am around my foster sister dog who I like very much. I am a good traveler in a crate and sleep through the night in my crate bed. When I want to take naps I put myself to bed in my crate. Being inside a home is kind of new to me but I am getting used to doors and gates. When we go for walks, which I love, I like to smell everything and I need to be on two leashes for now because I like to keep going when I pick up on something. Not a big snack eater, but I do like a bit of cheese for a reward. Haven’t seen a cat or children yet so I don’t know how I feel about them yet. I am being scheduled for neutering soon too. I thump my tail in greeting when I see my foster parents. It feels so good when they rub my belly and scratch behind my ears. I am becoming more confident every day.
Update: I can tell when a storm is coming and I get a little nervous so it helps to be right next to someone. If I hear someone outside or a strange noise I may bark to let everyone know. I am getting pretty good at sitting when asked (with and without cheese).
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.
