It’s Owen’s time to shine!

Owen 17 Sept.-800x532 (1)It’s Owen’s time to shine! We’re not sure why this incredibly handsome, fun-loving guy hasn’t had more adoption interest, so we’re giving him a moment to bask in the spotlight. Surely the right home is out there for him. Could it be with you?

Owen arrived at CFC three years ago, and we’ve learned a lot about him since then. For example, we just recently learned he LOVES going for car rides! He hops right in and even flops on his back in delight as he settles in for a new adventure.

He gets super excited when he sees volunteers heading his way, and he has mastered the “sit” command. He is treat-motivated, which always makes training much easier, and he takes his treats very, very softly. He can be strong out of the gate, rarin’ to go, but once he burns off some energy, he’s a terrific walking partner. A regular exercise routine would keep him at his best. An old injury limiting the mobility of his left hind leg does not slow him down at all. He is eager and ready to hit the trails.

But what Owen is most famous for at CFC is his love of toys. Give him a toy, and he just lights up. You’ll swear he’s smiling as he runs around gathering all the toys, rolling around with them, and tossing them in the air. He can self-entertain, but he really likes to have a human partner in play. A note of caution though: he will tear his way through stuffed toys pretty quickly, so tough toys (especially with a squeaker) are the way to go, unless you enjoy cleaning up lots of stuffing.

We currently have Owen listed as a hound, but after spending some time with him, it’s clear a flavorful mix makes up his genetic recipe. There might be a pinch of Aussie or Border Collie in there, or even Brittany Spaniel. Whatever his background, we think you’ll agree that the result is one beautiful dog.

Owen is still young–only about five years old–and weighs in at around 53 pounds. He prefers a home without cats. He can get very excited meeting other dogs, and he hasn’t quite mastered the art of politely introducing himself to them, but that is something that can be worked on through training.
