Behold! I am the mighty Odin, and I am looking for a castle to call my own. I'm a smart and affectionate young guy who would thrive with humans who have herding dog experience. I know I will blossom into the confident, well-mannered king I am meant to be! I am very eager to learn and please, but can be mischievous when I get bored. While I nap and snuggle with the best of them, I need humans who will keep me busy when I am ready to play. My favorite things to do include long walks or jogs, playing fetch, romping and barking with my doggie friends, and toys that work my mind like puzzle feeders. I love other dogs and would do best in a home with a canine pal to wrestle and play chase with.

I am very sweet with my family, but need slower introductions to new people because I can be shy on first greetings. I would also prefer a home without young children under the age of 13. I am potty and crate trained, and am ready to expand my skill set! Fetching Tails requires adopters of young dogs like me to sign us up for training, and I really think I will benefit from classes since I love to learn (and I am very food motivated so I look forward to earning treats!) If you are ready for a life with a loving and smart furry friend, please fill out an adoption application soon. I think we will have a legendary adventure!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
