My name is Vela and I’m guessed to be a Beagle mix and estimated to be about 1 year old. I’m a sweet girl and I currently weigh about 20 lbs.
Vela is a very happy dog. She is very friendly with people and gets along with the other dog in her foster home. She is not a big fan of her crate. We have allowed her to be on our furniture, and she likes sleeping on our daughters' beds at night. She appears to be housebroken.
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.
