We are pleased to introduce you to our newest FOS addition, Ophelia (aka Ophie). She is 10 weeks old and acts just like any other puppy her age. The only difference? She cannot see or hear. She is one of the Perfectly Imperfects – our favorite kind of dog.
Ophelia is currently in training to learn all the basic skills a puppy needs to know – just in a slightly different way. We use touch, vibrations and smells in our training and interactions with Ophie. She is learning quickly and growing like a weed. Based on our knowledge of her past, we believe her to be a Bulldog/Aussie mix.
We are currently searching for a Foster Family and/or Adopter for Ophie. The ideal candidate will be within a reasonable distance from Hagerstown MD to continue her training. While Ophelia is a gorgeous and smoosh-able tiny puppy right now – she will grow. Her ideal forever family must be serious and committed to her training. While it may be novel to own a puppy with special needs, the commitment to her is for life. If you are interested in Ophelia as either a Foster Family or an Adopter, please send us a private message on FB or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. After a preliminary Q&A, you will be invited to apply to foster/adopt. We welcome any and all questions!
Dino is 6.5 years old with the energy of a puppy, slightly needy but abandonment will do that to a dog. He is an escape artist so leash walking or privacy fence is best and he is an active dog. He LOVES his green, fuzzy, squeaky tennis ball. A runner, someone that enjoys long hikes or an active family with patience to help him adjust and trust are his ideal adopters.
Dino has lived with children and other dogs in his previous life, although smaller dogs may be an issue so proper introductions would be needed. He is working with a trainer, learning to trust people again and preparing himself for a family that will truly be his forever. Dino will need someone patient, someone willing to continue with his training and someone with a sense of humor. He is entertaining, loves his toys and prefers to be close to his people!
