• Opie
  • Mixed Breed
  • 2 years old
  • Male

Weight (approx): 67 lbs

Energy: Medium

Children:  Opie is generally good with children but can accidentally knock them over

Dogs: Yes

Cats: Opie doesn't currently live with a cat but his staycation home had one and while he was interested in the cat he managed to keep his distance and give the cat space.

Health Notes:     Opie came into care from our target communit as his original owners were no longer able to care of him. When he came into care he had a lump on his leg which after being biopsied came back as only a hematoma which will go away on its own. Since coming into care it has been noted that he is very itchy. His foster home is working with the vet to determine what his sensitivites may be. Potential adoptive parents will need to continue monitoring Opie's sensitivities and accept that he may require a specialized diet and/or medication into the future. Opie has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date with DACPP, rabies, bordatella and antiparasitics.

Behaviour Notes: Opie is both crate and house trained. He can be nervous in unfamiliar settings and he would benefit from muzzle training for unfamiliar situations such as vet visits. He is working on his loose leash walking but can pull hard when he is anxious such as when vehicles are passing. 

Ideal Home:  Opie would do best in a home with a decent sized and fenced yard. He is very attached to his people and will need a home where he is not alone for long periods of time/will get a good amount of attention. A home with or without other animals would be fine for Opie.  He currently likes playing with the resident dog at the foster home but it took a few weeks for him to warm up to the resident dog. Kids are fine but adopters should be aware that he may knock children over. He will need someone with some experience that is patient and understanding and is willing to go slow with introducing him to new things.
