Hi, I’m Johnny Reb. I am one year old, a small guy at about 20 lbs., and a Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle mix. The shelter staff say I am a real sweetheart and very friendly. If friendly means I want your attention, than yes I am friendly. I am just so happy to be off the streets and to know that OPH picked me to rescue for this kill shelter. Johnny Reb is an adorable boy with a black moon shape around one eye that add some character. He is ready and raring to find his forever family!
Hi, I’m Phelps. No relation to Michael, but you may be able to get me to swim. I am a 2-year-old Collie/Australian Shepherd mix, and medium in size at 40 lbs. I am such a happy and energetic guy, and I am bouncing around with joy knowing that I will soon be leaving this Kill Shelter to come to OPH. I would love to find an active person or family to adopt me and love me for life. Are you looking for a running partner, or Frisbee partner, or walking partner?
Phelps has a gorgeous fluffy brindle coat. He is up to date with shots, neutered, and coming soon to OPH!
Hey there, I’m a gravy girl, just ask my foster at the shelter. I’m Simmone; a 3-year-old, Chihuahua, sporting a gorgeous tan coat. I am very sweet and friendly and can’t understand why my owner surrendered me to the shelter. Simmone is in a foster home with cats and a big dogs and does well with both. Her foster describes her as “something special,” because she is so friendly. She loves laying next to you and loves belly rubs. Oh, did Simmone mention she loves gravy? Simmone is up to date with shots, spayed, and coming soon to OPH!
Hey, I’m a Norwich Terrier and a scruffy handsome guy. My name is Dwyer, and I am only 1 year old and small in stature. Just look at my face; how could my owner surrender me. I am quite perplexed and in need of a person or family who will love me for the rest of my life. I can’t wait to come to OPH, I hear there are great fosters and adopters waiting for me! Dwyer is up to date with shots and neutered.
Coco is a six year old Terrier mix. She is a little (30 lbs) bundle of love and shy affection. She is unsure at first but warms up quickly. A real treasure, Coco is already spayed and has wonderful house manners.
Fireworks is a Hound mix puppy. She has lovely markings - on her left it looks like someone started a watercolor painting and let the color flow to the corners of her mouth. She is a masterpiece! Sweet and young - any future adopter will need to be aware of the following: Due to her small size and young age, we recommend that she goes to a home with children that are respectful of her size and age. Because she is a baby, she will require an adopter who not out of the home for more than 4 hours at one time to continue her training - no exceptions! She is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and will need to be spayed at the age of 6 months.
Oberyn is a male Shepherd mix puppy. He has gorgeous markings and simply adorable in everything he does! Because he is a puppy; the following needs to be noted: Due to his small size and young age, we recommend that he goes to a home with children that are respectful of his size and age. Because he is a baby, he will require an adopter who not out of the home for more than 4 hours at one time to continue his training - no exceptions! He is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and will need to be neutered at the age of 6 months.
I know how to ‘sit’, ‘come’, ‘heel’, ‘down’, ‘stay’, ‘go to bed’, and ‘place’. I'm crate-trained and loves going on walks. I enjoy being petted and praised too.
Meet "Potcake Miss P"
Meet Miss P! This petite 30 lb. sweetie is a lover of all things 4-legged. She can be shy around people, so some extra TLC would be wonderful for her.

Her constant tail wagging is a sure sign that the love is in there just waiting to blossom!

Hello Everyone :) My name is Frankie & I'm a 4 year old, 70 lb, Labradoodle. I really like rawhides...and attention. I haven't made any messes in my crate or in the house so we can say with great confidence that I am housebroken. I know sit, lay, and come and I know them really well when there are treats for rewards! I'm going to need some regular brushing, my tail gets a little bit knotted up but my fosters have been working on getting it Once they let me outside I love to run around with my foster brother. We play ball a little bit, I know how to go get a ball but I don't always feel like bringing it back. I get a little upset when I'm left outside without a human, and I start yelling to make sure they know I'm still outside, I don't want them to forget me! We've been on a few walks, I'm manageable on a leash but my harness helps so I know when I'm pulling too much on my fosters. I haven't chased after any animals yet but I have been barked at by neighbors dogs when we walk by, I know not to bark back at them though, we just keep
I don't love my crate but I know it's for me to have a nice relaxing safe space. I've been through a lot in a short amount of time and it's hard for me to process. I cry and bark a little bit because I'd rather have people petting me, but it's going to be important for my transition to learn to be happy in my crate. It's definitely a nice place for me to go when I need some time for myself, and to keep me out of trouble while my fosters are away working. In a nutshell, that's my story! I'm waiting to find my new furever home...could that be you?? Labrador/Poodle | Male | 4 years | 70 lbs
Meet Smiley! What an amazing dog! Smiley had a very rough start at life before he was found by some wonderful people in India that nursed him back to health. Smiley is a 30 lb., 1 year old male desi dog. We have listed him as a hound and whippet mix based on appearance - but he's definitely a desi dog! Outdoors, Smiley shows a lot of energy and loves to play with other dogs. Favorite past time is to engage in a round of play with other dogs. He is SO wonderful with other dogs and just loves to play. Smiley has been a favorite at Doggie Daycare and loves to play with the other pups! Still learning the concept of fetch and loves to explore but staying close to you. Indoors, very laid back and independent. He just patiently waits for some cuddle time and good belly rub. Smiley has been fostered with other dogs and a small child while in India. In the US, Smiley spends a lot of time at doggie day care and the local dog park so he can remain social with other dogs. Smiley is crate and potty trained. Smiley had to fend for himself while looking for food on the streets of India. As a result, it is recommended that - to avoid any aggression - he should be feed separately if you have another pet. He happily shares his water bowl - but he is still learning that food is plentiful here for dogs! Hound | Male | 1 years | 30 lbs
Latimer is one sweet little boy! He is very friendly and only wants someone to love him. He is about 3 years old and a petite 8 lbs. Latimer is a cool combination of breeds and a neat little guy. He was surrendered (along with his brother) by his owner, through no fault of his own. Latimer would be a great travel companion and fit nearly anywhere. He travels great in the car, is fine in a crate, did great with his bath and loves to give kisses! He's a real snuggler, but also enjoys taking walks on a leash. Shih Tzu | Male | 3 years | 8 lbs.
Meet Liliana! A stunningly beautiful white Shepherd who is 2 years old and 45lbs, Liliana can't wait to join her forever family! Liliana has a calm demeanor and is still trying to come out of her shell. She appears to be comfortable around kids and other dogs. Liliana has had a rough life before coming to us and because of this she will need an adopter that will give her time and patience as she is still unsure of humans.She wants to please her people, but needs to learn to trust them first. Liliana would probably do best in a home with another dog as she turned into a energetic pup when introduced to her foster sisters. She does wonderful in a crate, seems house trained, not much of a barker and loves cheese wiz. Liliana really is a super girl! Liliana is up to date with shots, spayed, micro-chipped and fostered in Bailey's Crossroads, Virginia. Shepherd | Female | 3 years | 8 lbs.
