Status:  Available

Age: 12

Weight: 79

Personality: Opie (formally Drake) is back with GRR after his original owner died and then being shuffled around between friends and family.

Opie is doing well with his current foster mom. He is an older gent and has been through a lot. He’s had no accidents in the house and is trusted to roam on his own. He has been absolutely no trouble so far.

He’s fine with dogs. As soon as he saw the other dog in the house, Scooter, laying on the couch, he climbed right up there with him. He did chase one of his previous owner’s cats. He is good with children and lets them pet him. Opie, despite his age, can get in and out of the car on his own. He’s also very good on the leash.

Opie has average energy and enjoys his naps. He is learning to play and he loves his stuffies, his favorite of which Froggy who he loves to make croak. He enjoys being outside and exploring the yard. Foster mom has seen him run across the yard, so he moves pretty well for an older guy.  And he likes his walks. He visited the neighbors across the street and was a perfect gentleman in their home.

Medically, Opie is in fairly good shape for a senior boy.  He has an ear infection which is being treated and itchy skin which is also being treated.  He has a few fatty lumps under his skin, which is fairly typical for older dogs. His fur is beautiful and very soft, and he tolerates being groomed to keep it that way.

Ideal Home: Opie needs a low-key home with a family who just wants a calm, sweet older gentleman to keep them company. No cats!
