Meet Odin! Odin is a gorgeous approximately 3 year old golden retriever who traveled all the way from Turkey. Odin was found in a shelter in Turkey, and our rescue partner there knew she needed to help him. After a couple of months, Odin made his journey to America and has settled in perfectly ever since. He is now ready to find his dream forever home and can’t want to meet his new family.
Odin is a very affectionate dog that loves to cuddle and just be with his people all the time. He sleeps most of the night next to his foster mom soaking up all the pets. He greatly enjoys outdoor activities with his people and is currently getting around 4 miles of walking each day. This is perfect for him, although on a nice, cool day he would definitely go for longer! Odin walks very well on leash and has no issues with reactivity when seeing other dogs and people. Except for a tail wagging a million miles a minute…that’s his reaction to anything and everything! Odin does walk using a harness as he does not like the leash pulling on his neck/collar. It will be very important that his forever family understands this and does not use anything but a harness for walks.
After a fun outing or lots of activity, Odin is definitely one to just curl up on the couch with you and enjoy the evening, but be prepared for a fair amount of snoring when the day is done! Odin LOVES other dogs and has had any playdates and pack walks while in his foster home. He is a very playful dog who just wants to roughhouse and run around with his friends. He has gotten along with every dog he’s met and is very respectful once his doggie friend is tired and will wait with a wagging tail until they get a second wind! Having another young, playful dog in his forever home will be a requirement for Odin’s placement. Odin is super smart, and extremely food motivated. He has already learned to sit, and his foster family has been working with him on other commands, as well. He is so eager to learn new things, and to please his people! He would do very well in training classes with his forever family.
He hasn’t had any accidents in his foster home and has picked up on their routine pretty quickly. That said, he will of course need some additional direction in his forever home until he knows the new routine and where he is supposed to potty. Odin would be great in a home with kids over 6 years old, and with an active family committed to daily fun and exercise, socialization, and of course tons of cuddles! Odin loves the car and would make a fantastic road trip buddy, too.
Not only is Odin an extremely lovable boy, but he’s also endless fun! He loves just plopping down for belly rubs, no matter the time or place, but especially enjoys any form of water. Puddles, kiddy pools, hoses, anything with water is automatically his new best friend. While he has not been tested around a pool or the beach, it’s a pretty safe bet that this handsome boy is part fish and could definitely be a swimmer! He is also known for rolling around in the grass, and will need a nice grassy yard in his forever home so he can enjoy this fun everyday!
