My name is Hydrus and I’m part of the Constellations transport that came to OPH on 7/10/20.
I’m guessed to be a Mountain Cur mix and estimated to be about 1 year old. I currently weigh about 45 lbs.
My foster parents are still getting to know me, but so far here’s what they’ve noticed about me:
- I love my dog bed
- I love to cuddle with my foster parents
- I have some interest in toys
- I walk good on the leash
- I don’t mind my crate, sometimes I go in on my own, sometimes foster Mom and Dad have to give me a little push
- I’m a little whiny but haven’t barked once
- My first few days here I had a few accidents in my crate and in the house, but foster parents say I am super smart and already picked up that I need to potty outside and I haven't had any accidents in the house since those first few days
- I’ve learned the command sit, and foster parents are working on stay, leave it, down, and possibly others
- I met my fur foster sibling and immediately loved her and wanted to play, but since I’m still healing from being spayed foster parents tried to keep us calm and not play too much
I’m still learning how to “dog” so foster parents are taking it slow with me, but I can tell that I am safe and I open up a bit each day!
"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.

I’m in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so, apply today!
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.
