Like every Tuesday, Laura and I talked to Kate from Tri County Human Society this morning on the Loon.  Today's pet up for adoption is a Black Lab mix and a damn good looking dog.  Only seems to have one habit that might not work if you have chickens. Odie kills chickens!

TCHS

Who doesn't enjoy a little chicken every once in awhile?  Kate said Odie is a little on the skinny side, so we recommended fried chicken. Other than the urge to kill chickens, Odie sounds like the ideal addition to any family.

Say hello to Odie! This sweet guy came to TCHS because he was chasing and killing chickens in the previous home. Due to this, it is not recommended that Odie goes to a home with smaller animals or chickens.

Was said to do well with cats in the previous home, but due to his history of a high prey drive, new adopters should be cautious with cats. Did well with dogs and children in the previous home. Slow and proper introductions are recommended when introducing new pets or people.

Odie was used to being a mostly outdoor dog, during the day he would roam outside, and at night he was brought in the home to be kenneled for bed. Did well in the kennel during the night. LOVES to play fetch. He does pull quite a bit on the leash, so an Emily Weiss Walkie may be a great addition to his new home to aid in his pulling behavior; ask TCHS staff for more info!

Was a bit fearful of fireworks and would run away in the previous home; his new owners should be prepared to help work him through his fear to become a more confident pup! Was also a bit scared of nail trims in the last home and will need training to help him through this behavior The use of positive reinforcement training is also recommended to help Odie learn some basic commands.

He should be kept on a consistent schedule to go potty to limit any accidents in the home. He should be fed a high quality diet with meat as the first ingredient to ensure his health into the future. Interactive toys such as KONGS are recommended to keep him entertained in the new home.

Odie cannot wait to meet you!
