Hi! My name is Procyon and I’m part of the celestial transport that arrived to OPH 7/24/2020.
I’m guessed to be a Bull Dog mix and estimated to be about 2 years old. I’m a sweet boy and I currently weigh about 48 lbs.
My foster mommy thinks I'm mixed with what they call a 'pocket pitty' (a small version of a pit bull). In my foster home I'm a complete wiggle butt that melts when you pet me. I LOVE affection. I am friendly with every dog I have met and great with kids. I love walks, I'm learning to walk on a leash. I'm very strong and am just a happy go lucky boy! I do well with my crate, it's the place I hang out at during the day to sleep (it has a cushy pillow). I have not had any accidents in my foster house to date. At night, I can talk a little but settle quickly and enjoy a good night sleep (my foster mommy usually has to wake me). I don't seem to have taken many car rides in my time, but do well (I like to watch each car pass us by).
I just love to be loved and would snuggle anyone that will let me!

I’m in search of my new family. Is that with you?! If so apply today! I won’t be available 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.

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.
