Age: 2 years
UPDATE - 31 May 2014: Odie and Delila came to their foster home one week ago and had completely different responses. They arrived while I was out and were spending time in the yard with my husband. Immediately upon my stepping into the yard, Delila ran across the yard to come greet me. Odie on the other hand, snuck up to me, let me pet him and then found the best hiding place in the yard. One week later, Delila remains her lovey self, and Odie has really opened up.
Odie is a very sweet little guy. He is still a bit fearful, but given the progress he has made in a week, he should be a confident dog in no time. Odie is a bit nervous at meal time, eating some running off, and then coming back for more. He sleeps quietly all night in a kennel with Delila. Odie loves to sit with me and cuddle. He is also a kisser. Odie doesn’t know about belly rubs yet. When I try to roll him over to rub his belly he gets a bit scared, but does accept them. He plays with or ignores the other dogs as their personality dictates. He is also good with the cats and the cats aren’t fearful of him. I can’t really comment on house training yet – we did have a couple of accidents last weekend, but that can just be the stress of a new situation.
24 May 2014: Odie recently moved into a foster home. Here's a VIDEO of him with his current foster sister, Delila.
First impressions: Odie is a 2-year-old neutered male beagle. Odie would do best with another dog. He's a little on the shy side but does warm up once he gets to know you. He was a stray in Goochland County so his history is unknown. Stay tuned for more information on Odie!
