Ophelia is available for adoption Tuesday through Sunday.
If you are interested in adopting her please see our “How to Adopt” section and come in to meet her.
Our little Ophelia may not be as famous as Shakespeare's "Ophelia", but we're certain she'll make history with you. This scruffy little green-eyed girl is still getting acquainted here at APRA; she is a little shy and taking some time to come out of her shell. What we do know of her personality is that she is very, very sweet. She loves to be held and feel the comfort of being held.
When we initially introduced her to her new pen mates she was wary at first, but then she sniffed around and got her bearings. This sweet girl just needs the patience and love of a kind human and she will show her personality . Her furry friends will help her gain her confidence as well. We imagine that within a few days little Ophelia will feel more comfortable and she will show more terrier spunk.
Ophelia is yet another example of a sweet dog whose former owners did not give her medication to protect her from heartworm disease. Yes, this tiny, young dog had Heartworms. Luckily, she ended up with APRA where we were able to treat her of her heartworms and now she is ready to go home!
