My name is Thea and I’m part of the 9/11 Memorial Dog themed transport. I am named after Thea who served as a Search and Rescue dog at the World Trade Center during the 9/11 Tragedy. Isn't that AWESOME! I carry her name proudly! I’m guessed to be a shepherd mix and estimated to be about 3 years young and currently weigh about 65lbs. My foster mom says I super sweet, kind and gentle. I have gotten along with other dogs that I have met so far. I recently attended an adoption event and was so well behaved. I know how to give my paw especially if that request is followed up with a tasty treat! My foster mom says I have been good around children that I have met. I enjoy being outside and love a good roll in grass! I am crate trained and just a good girl overall!
I’m in search of my new family to love and one who will love me back. 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. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. 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.
