Meet Ophelia

Hi, I’m Ophelia! I’m a happy, skinny 50 pound-ish Shepherd mix. I was living in a shelter in the Kentucky floods area when I charmed my way onto the Second City K9 rescue van. Now I’m showing my foster mom what a good girl I am!

I wag my tail a lot—especially if someone looks at me or I run into one of my dog buds. I’m learning ’sit’ and ’down’—as long as treats are involved. I like belly rubs, butt scratches and trying to get close enough to lick your face. I’m not much of a couch potato. I’d rather lay on the floor or my bed close by and watch to see if you're going towards the door...‘cuz, yes, I wanna go outside! Out where the birds and cicadas are singing and there are squirrels and rabbits - heaven!

Oh and just so you know, I always take care of ‘business’ outside too! You wanna go on a car ride—I’m in! If I have to stay home alone, I am very well-behaved which is good ‘cuz I don’t like crates much. Just don’t leave food on the counter—that’s too tempting, even for a good girl like me!

If you’re ready for a new roommate, reach out and schedule a meet-and-greet today!
