Animal ID: 7412Irma's Lucky (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Irma's Lucky! This boy is beyond lucky in looks and personality. He is friendly and loving, eager to meet people and dogs. He is approximately 3 years old, 72 pounds, and appears to be a Labrador Retriever & Shepherd Mix. He loves to play with stuffed toys and if you won't throw them for you, he will entertain himself by tossing them in the air. His coat is deceivingly soft and so shiny and pure black. He is a leaner and loves pets and hugs and attention. He can run and play with other dogs and will do well with training in his new home. He seems like he would be a quick study. Lucky is neutered and up to date on vaccinations and ... (Read More)monthly preventatives. If you are interested in adopting Lucky, please apply today! https://ophrescue.org/dogs/6639 OPH partnered with Old Town Pet Resort and Arlington Animal Hospital to assist 21 dogs who found themselves in the path of superstorm Hurricane Irma. Through the generosity of these two organizations, we were able to bring in these dogs and ensure they were out of harms way! Old Towne Pet Resort in Springfield graciously created a seamless transition for these pups from the shelter to their resort where the dogs are being cared for, evaluated, nurtured and prepared for their forever homes. Arlington Animal Hospital evaluated each and every dog and provided preventatives and medical attention for all noted ailments. OPH truly believes that 'It Takes a Village' to make a difference in the lives of shelter dogs. Through this Project Hurricane initiative, we have seen the best of our local business partners and could not be more proud to partner with them!

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Apache is a three year old shepherd mix whose owners left behind when they moved. Apache is a very big, strong dog who will need an experienced owner who can physically handle him! A nice fenced yard would let him run around and safely burn off some energy! He is pretty reactive when he meets new dogs so for now, we recommend that he be the only pet in the home. (No cats!) Apache is a happy to meet new people and loves those who show him attention and kindness. He was lived inside a home before and is sure to make a loyal, loving companion for the right family. $175.00 adoption fee ($200 for puppies under 6 months old) helps us take care ...

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Skittles but I answer to Haily. I love playing with my foster brothers and hope to find a home with a dog that will play with me. I sleep in my crate at night and when the humans are away. Most the time I am not crated long during the day if at all cause there is at least one human home. I also have foster kitty brothers that I like to play with. If my new home has kitties you will have to watch me with the litter. I still have a few accidents in the house but I am still a puppy. I have a ton of energy and will play a lot throughout the day. I do well at the vets the only thing I don't like is to be held. I am known to follow ...

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    If you want to see adorable, take a look at me! I am about 2 years old and of the Heinz 57 variety--my human friends have guessed I'm a Corgi/Shepherd mix, but perhaps I'm the perfect candidate for one of those cool DNA tests. At about 30 pounds, I exhibit all the great traits of both breeds in the perfect sized body for any family! I'm safe now, but boy, did I recently have a scare! See, I had puppies a couple of months ago, and then, suddenly, they were all taken from me. That was bad enough, but then my people took me for a car ride and set me on the side of the road. It broke my heart as I watched them drive away. THEN, someone ... (Read More)took me to a shelter, which was another even scarier life. Thank goodness that someone took pity on me. I am now in a foster home, where I shower my humans with the love and affection that they deserve. If you decide to adopt me, I will never allow you to feel unloved, as I know how it feels. I am housetrained, spayed and current with vet care. I get along with most dogs and am learning my way around cats. To request an application, write pals@psknet.com for an application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-15-00139  (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    My name is Buddy! Im a Very sweet boy!I was picked up about 4 weeks ago in dangerous curve. Severely emaciated and scared! I was took straight to the vet and was wormed and given flea medication. I only weighed 39.6 lbs the day I was rescued. Vet believes I was neglected or I had been out on my own a long time. But guess what, I now weighs 45 lbs! The vet said about 50 lbs is a good weight for me. I have been vaccinated, heartworm negative, I have only had one accident inside, so I'm house-trained!I do have arthritis and cataracts but that doesn't slow me down, I love walking outside and sniffing everything. I am very mellow, I like to run ... (Read More)around outside but when I'm inside I just want to sleep, eat and snuggle. The people who picked me up have 2 children and I just love them, and their love and attention. They have 5 other dogs, 3 females and 2 males. I do get moody behavior around food, probably due to the fact I went so long without it I'm sure. So I eat separate from the other dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs are not taking to me well and we've had to remain separated. I feel like a home where I am the only dog would be best, so I don't feel like I'm competing for attention or food or maybe a home with another older dog. I don't mind cats, I just walk right past them. I promise I will make someone very happy if they will just give me a chance. I have so much love to give! I'm looking for my furever home! With a wet nose and big kisses, love Buddy! (Less)

Animal ID: 6759Prisma (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Looking for a new best friend? Want a happy, easy go buddy to watch TV with and snuggle? Prisma is your dog! Prisma is a great 3 year old, 42 pound female Shepherd mix.. Some quick facts on Prisma: * She has a beautiful white coat but does shed (even with daily brushing) * She is the quietest dog we have ever fostered. * She is crate trained * She is house trained * She walks like a dream on the leash and does not pull one bit. * She likes cats from what we have observed. * She LOVES everyone but does at times not care for smaller dogs we have found. * She is gentle and has such kind eyes. * Her foster family would love to keep her ... (Read More)but cannot and continue to foster. * She will be an amazing companion to anyone. Some additional information we have observed: * will do up and down stairs but does not care for them. A Townhouse is not a good environment for her. * is terrified of loud sudden noises such as fireworks & gun shots - she would do best in a country setting or a quiet neighborhood. We imagine a firetruck would send her to hide as well. * While she walks great on a leash she really prefers a fenced yard. She does not want to take a long walk and any loud noise scares her. * she LOVES 'pup cups' from the local ice cream stand. * she appears to like riding in a car. * has a mind set that is typical of a teenager 'I don't want to do it and you can't make me' at times. Her foster family finds it comical! Prisma is a wonderful gal. Put your application in soon! She will find her forever family quickly we are sure. (Less)

    Hi, I'm Luka! I'm a handsome 2 year old, 35lb Shepherd Mix. I arrived at OPH on the Freedom ride on 7/28. I am house trained. I know how to sit and lay down. I am great with other people, and I do well with other dogs that I am introduced slowly to. I like to chase cats, bunnies and squirrels, so a house without cats or small animals would be best.

    Lucy came to me as an owner surrender from a high kill shelter out of North Carolina. She is very lovable and calm. It's very surprising to see a dog of this age as calm as she is. I had advertised her and then i thought it was possible that she was pregnant so we pulled her back off. She is not pregnant and will be spayed next week. she has now been with me a few weeks and she hasnt changed. Sweet gentle loving calm loves attention. She would be okay as an only dog but would prefer a playmate. she is not an alpha dog. She is house trained if you have a yard. she will not go to the bathroom on a leash but will if let out in a yard. ...

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATE: Cinnamon was adopted, but through no fault of her own, was returned. At her new home, she became cat savvy, and pretty much ignores them now! Cinnamon loves most anyone who will show her some affection, and will quickly 'lean in' to show her appreciation. She craves attention, likes to run and play with other dogs, has mat a cat or two, and a few children. She did well with all of the above, though the children clearly had been taught how to meet a strange dog for the first time, and the cat was pretty laid back and did not run from her. if a cat runs, it will get a VERY big, up close and personal, WOOF! This girl is STRONG, but ... (Read More)does pretty well on a leash, especially after you get away from the house. She would definitely benefit from someone who will spend some time with some basic training. You are never too old to learn. She loves to go for a ride and will definitely show her excitement if she thinks you are going to take her, or thinks you should! If you reach for her leash (or she thinks you are), she is ready to go! She is smart and knows how to 'sit at the table' before receiving her dinner. Unfortunately, her desire to be 'right next to her person' is greater than her desire to learn to 'go lay down'. Cinnamon has a prescription for Proin. She would not be described as incontinent, but does seem to have a tiny leak occasionally. She regularly goes outside to potty, but if she has a long nap, she can sometimes (not always) drip just a little. She doesn't have any issues when on her prescription. A quiet, more laid back environment would be more suitable for this sweet girl. In the evening, you might find her sprawled out on the sofa next to you, or at your feet, but either way, you can bet she will be near you. She is loving and loyal, and will bond very quickly to the one who is just right for her! She is highly food motivated and a treat for her would be to lick some yogurt from the spoon . . . okay, or to lick anything from a spoon, or your hand, or her plate! Cinnamon is good when left alone in the house, is potty-trained, has been fully-vetted and is on HW preventative. Questions concerning the adoption process should be directed to Peaceful Passings.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I just can't say enough about this puppy. He is so full of love. he loves attention and loves to play. he has some energy but he is not crazy energetic. he is so sweet. he is crate trained. he does well in the house . he loves people and would do well around older children. i say older only because he could knock over a young child unintentionally. he loves to play with other dogs. he is an alpha male so he would need to be in a home with a submissive non alpha dog or would be fine being an only dog. having said that he listens well. he comes when you call him. he will sit with some prompting. he is so bright. he would make a ... (Read More)great pet for someone. i have not cat exposed him. my guess is he will chase cats but is not the aggressive cat killer and could be trained to live with a cat. his smile will light up your day. he wants to be a part of a family and sleep by the bed. He is utd on shots, chipped and is neutered. This is an all around good puppy that will make a great family addition. He will stand well for a bath and doesn't seem to mind it. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-29-00223Kuma (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Kuma is an approximately 3 year old female Akita mix. She is up to date on all of her shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and is spayed. She has a lot of energy to burn and would benefit from a very active home that can both physically and mentally exercise her. She is very smart and picks things up quickly. She knew a few commands when she arrived; sit, down, stay, shake, other paw and high five. Kuma is a very vocal girl; she will talk to you, she howl at the sirens, talks back to you and generally just loves the sound of her voice while she is awake. :) I suspect there is some German Shepherd in her somewhere, she is an ... (Read More)excellent protector of the home and yard and will let anyone know when she sees or hears something that may be amiss. She is ball driven and will bring the ball back to you most of the time. Kuma has perfect manners in the house, is crate trained but does not need the crate. When I have left her loose, she was found either on a dog bed or laying in her crate with its door open. Not a single thing touched that she shouldn't mess with. To adopt Kuma, I will need a personal and vet reference, there will be a home visit during the meet/greet with her and her potential family and also a contract. She loves being with her people and can be quite affectionate when she wants to be. A home with very young kids or small animals would not be ideal for her, older kids and where she would be the only pet would be her best placement. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-22-00269Rex (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    My name is Rex and I am a chained dog. Yep, it's every bit as bad as it sounds. Look into my soulful eyes and you can see how I dream to be part of a family like the little dogs who live at my house. You see, when I was a puppy, I lived inside, but as I grew, my caregiver decided to make me an 'outside dog.' I didn't want to be an 'outside dog,' but now, for my 3 years of living, that is the life I have led. I am an optimist, and I have made the most of my life, giving kisses to those who visit me. I waggle and show them what a good boy I can be if only I can move into a home with a family. I dream of that every minute of every day. ... (Read More)THAT DAY HAS ARRIVED. My friends at Radford Pound Pals now have 'ownership' of me and are looking for my perfect new home! They are seeking an experienced dog family who can be patient with me. I want to learn and I want to please, but I may not understand all of the rules at first. See, there are no rules on the chain except surviving. My special friend next door loves me and works on training me every day and brags on how smart I am. She thinks I am a Shepherd/Lab mix and also tells me how handsome I am. I am also neutered, current on vaccines and HW/Lyme negative. Please, if you are interested in me joining your family, write my friends at pals@psknet.com for an application. (Less)
