My name is Thea and I’m part of the 9/11 Memorial Dog themed transport coming to OPH 9/11/2020. I am named and honored after Thea who originated from FL and served as a Search and Rescue dog at the World Trade Center during the 9/11 Tragedy.
I’m guessed to be a hound mix and estimated to be about 3 years old. I’m a sweet girl and I currently weigh about 54lbs.
I’m making my way north 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.
