ADOPTED ON 07-26-14 – Every once in a while we get the opportunity within our rescue to work with a dog that is absolutely unique in almost every dimension, in this case it is our boy Odie. This young man came to us from a small shelter in southern Mississippi, the people there were so happy to see us, a short time later we understood why. As the shelter people brought Odie out we soon realized why they were so happy to see us, this was by far the worst smelling dog I had ever encountered and we had a 2 hour ride home. My partner in our rescue said she wanted to ride on top of the truck but if I had to endure so did she..
FULL COAT***NEUTERED***FULLY VETTED*** GREAT WITH PEOPLE
GREAT WITH OTHER DOGS*** LEASH, HOUSE AND BASIC COMMAND TRAINED.
Anyway the name Odie stuck as an affectionate nick name for odoriferous. As you might expect our boy had every bug known to man along with quite a few skin issues, thankfully we can now say that all maladies have been treated and cured, our boy also smells great! This is now one great German shepherd male that will top out at about 90 pounds, has wonderful full coat and is between 3 and 4 years of age. One look at Odie will tell the story, that face just melts any resistance you might have and trust me at this point he knows it. Our boy is a beautiful specimen of all things German shepherd, smart, happy, loving, gentle, courageous, strong bond and of course a strong but in control guardian instinct. To say Odie has a mind of his own would be an understatement but in his case it is not a negative , he is usually right, tough to admit as a trainer. Mr. Odie has passed all of our socialization and training programs with ease, in most cases he set the standard. We have found our guy to be open and engaging with dogs and extremely good with people. Odie is happiest when he lounges around the house or yard with “his” person.
