There are a number of dogs at Orphans of the Storm® who are a year or younger. If you’re looking for a young pup to join your family, come in soon to meet them!
Ophelia the one-year-old Foxhound mix is one of the most snuggly dogs you will ever meet. In fact, we never even made it to the off-leash run because all Ophelia wanted to do was snuggle instead of walk. She is an expert at giving doggy hugs and is convinced she’s a lapdog even though she’s a little too large to fit entirely. Ophelia also loves getting belly rubs and probably would have stayed lolling in the grass for hours if she had the chance.
Ophelia came from an owner who mostly kept her in the yard, so Ophelia doesn’t have much experience with leashes and will need some leash training. She also seems a little nervous and insecure, so she will need plenty of TLC to help her come out of her shell and make her feel comfortable in her new home. Stop in soon to meet Ophelia!
Billy the seven-month-old Beagle mix has plenty of that puppy energy. He did his Beagle thing and followed his nose everywhere around the off-leash run, but did so with a run-and-stop method rather than casually walking. Billy’s tail was always pointing straight up and wagging.
Billy was eager to go around the woodland preserve. He pulled on the leash occasionally when he wanted to follow his nose in a particular direction but overall did pretty well, considering he’s still young. Billy is currently sharing his kennel with another dog, so he could go to a home with or without another furry friend. Come in soon to see if Billy is the pup for you!
Stemi the six–month-old Mountain Cur mix is an active and energetic pup. He was jumping up and down in excitement when he realized it was his turn to come out. Stemi led the way to the off-leash run and happily scampered around. Stemi likes to know what’s going on with everyone, so he was trying his best to look over and through the fence at the other run.
Stemi likes to show his affection by giving doggy hugs. When I saw him out later with another volunteer, Stemi came running over and jumped right up to hug me. He’s also one of those dogs whose entire body wiggles when he’s happy. Stemi is sure to put a smile on your face. If you’re looking for a fun-loving young dog, be sure to say hi to Stemi!
