My name is Storm and I’m part of the 9/11 Memorial Dog themed transport coming to OPH 9/11/2020. Here's what my foster has to say about me:
• LOVES being outside! That's where she spent the majority of her life, so a person with a backyard or a rural setting would be great. She's not super high energy really, she just feels most comfortable hanging outdoors.
• She is a snuggler!! Loves curling up next to you no matter where you are (will even jump in your lap if you're in a chair). She is super loving and sweet
• No potty accidents in the house so far!
• AMAZING with children! She has met ages 3-6 and is extremely calm and okay with being pet by them
• Feels comfortable around dogs but isn't the most warm and friendly just yet. I think with the proper introduction, she could be good friends with a dog
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.
