Are you going to be my new best friend? Hi! My name is Ursa Major and I'm part of the Constellations themed transport. I’m very sweet and I enjoy hanging out with humans and taking a nap or two (or three or four) throughout the day. I just love life, and please, whatever you do, don’t stop petting me!
I'm guessed to be a Plott Hound mix and I am about 3 years old. I currently weigh about 42lbs. I'm 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.

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.
