Pet of the Week: Heidi

Tysons’ Pet of the Week is Heidi, a gentle and sensitive dog who’s estimated to be about four to five years old.

Here’s what her friends at Operation Underdog WV had to say about her:

Our newest girl is Heidi, and she is a delight! This pretty girl even had a smile on her face for her shelter intake photo. We’ve recently gotten her into a foster home and she’s sweet as can be. She is doing well with resident dogs and does not appear to be concerned with outside cats, though we have not tested her with an indoor cat at this time. She walks pretty well on a leash and enjoys going out for walks.

Heidi is doing better with house-training but will still need consistency and continued reinforcement in her adoptive home. She is a gentle and sensitive dog, so praise and positive methods are best for her.

Heidi had at least a recent period of struggle in her life. She is thin, was covered in ticks and has worn paw pads. Due to some teeth tarter and wear in the front, we are estimating she is 4 to 5 years old. Her ideal weight is probably going to be around 50 lbs. She is relatively quiet so would likely work in a home with shared walls, etc. Email for an application.

Are you and Heidi the perfect match?
