OWEN

IMG_8392

SURROUND ME WITH TOYS AND MORE TOYS, ADD HUMANS AND OTHER DOGS AND I’M AT MY BEST!

 THE BASICS:

  • HOUND- Sleek cream jacket, tan oval spots near hips, tan at base of tail, around face and ears.  53lbs
  • ADULT MALE; Est DOB: 2015
  • ARRIVAL: September 9, 2017
  • HISTORY:  Owen was pulled from a high kill shelter when space became an issue.  At the prior shelter,  he had taken up with a family as a stray but they could not keep him long term.
  • MEDICAL NOTE:  Owen has limited range of motion in his left hip likely due to an untreated older injury.  He takes daily meds to manage his pain.   Owen runs and plays like any normal, happy dog and the limited range of motion in his hip does not slow him down…at all!

I’m at my best surrounded by toys and more toys and yes, a human by my side. Howdy, folks.  It’s me Owen.  I love to play. I love my purple stuffy!!! I also like to chase tennis balls. Folks have commented on how I can seemingly self entertain for long periods of time if given just a few simple toys.  I will carry and throw toys around and then roll on my back in great delight.  Still can’t believe the good fortune I have come upon in winding up at CFC!   I’ve never met a stranger and I’m told I’m graced with a super sweet disposition typical of many hounds.  I’m a good match should you already have a dog in stock but cats look just like small little toys to me so they are not a good choice for me!  LOL. I’ll admit, I get very excited when I see someone heading toward my pen with a leash. I get so excited it’s hard for me to focus on what I’m told. But I sure am enthusiastic with my affection! I’m not so happy when it’s time to go back inside the pen, though. Sometimes I have to be lured inside because I am so afraid I’ll be left alone again. I would love to be adopted by someone who could be patient with me until I gain some confidence and feel secure once more.
