Oprah is a loving 4-year-old pittie mix who is in desperate need of a foster home, as the shelter life is stressing her out. She has lived in a house before, so she's ready to make a transition to yours.

This pup is a bit shyer than the human Oprah and takes some time and slower intros before really feeling comfortable with new people, but she has shown excellent manners in the house. She knows all her basic commands like sit, down, and leave it. She's both crate and house trained. And she does like to stay busy! Oprah loves going for walks (and trying to chase squirrels). She'll bring her rope to you for a game of tug of war. She'll chase her tail or romp around the yard.

She's looking for an adult-only, low-traffic home with a lot of structure as she thrives in a comfortable routine. Oprah appreciates the simple things in life such as exercise and companionship from her foster(s). Her floppy ears are what get her noticed, but her personality is what will get you in the door. She will always keep you entertained!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
