Please Note: This animal is listed as a courtesy to another organization. Please be sure to contact the foster/caretaker for more information about him.
All of the animals posted on our site have been temperament tested. While not all are in the immediate area, once we have processed and approved your application, we will move the dog to our adoptive area for you to meet, greet and hopefully adopt. Sometimes we will have more than one application on a dog. That does not mean it automatically goes to another family but you should be aware of the fact that until you are approved and set up for the meet/greet.. the dog could get adopted by another applicant.
Odin is full of life and love. Not a mean bone anywhere in him. And it's amazing! He began life in a crack house, where he was attacked with a meat cleaver and lost his tail. The sweetness of his temperament was so strong that no matter what, it was never broken. Saved in a raid, he was taken to a vet and an employee there took him home. He discovered kindness! She has cared for him for 5 years, and quickly discovered Odin was a wonderful dog. He was rapidly well house trained, learned to sit, stay, come, and many tricks. He was curious about cats, but didn't try to hurt them, is very playful with other dogs. He will play endlessly with the greyhound next door, but is happiest when he is taken hiking and gets to play in the river. Playing chase and fetch are also favorite activities. His current caregiver had a baby and he adores the baby, lying next to her bed and, now that she is a year old, watching over her as she plays. He loves all people, any size or shape. He could define the word "friendly". Odin was born to be a family dog. Oh yes, and he has been crate trained, too! If you like big, sturdy boys and want a best friend to take camping, or just out for exercise, Odin would be perfect for you! Show him there are more good people in this world than bad. He will give you a lifetime lease on his whole heart. Note: his caregiver has had to move to an apartment and it is not the place for him, or this amazing dog would not be available for adoption. He has had the best of vetting, since his person works at a vet. He has all his shots and has been already neutered for you. A SPECIAL NOTE TO YOU FROM HIS FOSTER: He gets so excited and pulls on his leash when he sees another dog and he has a super deep bark. All he wants to do is say hi and play with them. It isn't aggression. He is a frustrated greeter you could say. lol. He is desperate to meet other dogs. He is SO calm 75% of the time when he says hi. Otherwise he just politely sniffs the other dog and then calmly walks away. It was actually interesting, he helped my friends dog a lot. Their dog is kind of nervous and having Odin around helped him calm immediately. He just followed Odin wherever he went, it was so sweet. I think Odin would love a cat. I genuinely think he loves all living beings. I think he'd be excited but would follow the cats lead. I've had multiple maintenance people in this past week too and he's so relaxed about them coming into the house. That was really nice to see. I've taken him to my friends backyard and house to play with their dog a few times and he's so chill. Certainly seemed very happy in their much larger yard and home. So, if anyone has another dog, I think he'd like that. But, he definitely doesn't have separation anxiety if a solo dog.
