A very smart boy, Opie excels at his training. He loves to go hiking with his backpack on, because having this little job to do helps focus his energy. He also enjoys swimming and playing fetch.
Because of his high energy, Opie cannot live with cats. He does well with female dogs, though sometimes he can play a bit rough. Although Opie is on meds to help with anxiety, he still has a difficult time with medical exams.
Opie will likely be a bit calmer in a stable home environment, but will need someone who is sensitive to how he feels, and willing to continue working with him.
Opie is part of our Single Pets* program! That means that he is eligible for a free flight home and waived adoption fee!
*Single pets do best as the only dog or cat in the home.
