Odessa came to us after living life on the streets while caring for her 12 babies. We aren't sure if she has ever lived in a house before because every thing seems to be so new to her. She is learning new things everyday and enjoying the luxuries of a comfortable bed, consistent meals, and endless massages.
Likes: Odessa loves being sweet talked to. She is a cuddle bug and enjoys massages. She melts right into your lap and will stare at you with affection.
Dislikes: children of all shapes and sizes. Odessa gives the impression children may not have been nice to her in the past. She is defensive and fearful with young and older children (even teens)
Personality: Once Odessa is comfortable, you will see she is so full of LOVE! She is showing her silly side and will do little excitement hops if you baby talk her. She LOVES toys and will carry them all over the house. When she is feeling super effective she will seek out her person and push her head into them for nuzzles. This girl is the SWEETEST!
Temperament: Due to her past, she is nervous of new surroundings and new people, especially men and children. She is a protector of her house and yard and will bark at "intruders". However, she allows her foster mom to clean her ears, brush her, bathe her, trim and paint her nails
Energy level: very mild, couch potato, but enjoys occassional sprints around the yard
Favorite activities: playing with her toys and naps, being loved on and adored by her people
Good with cats, dogs, and kids over 6?: Odessa takes time to warm up, but once she knows she is safe she adores other dogs. She currently lives with an English Mastiff and a Saint Bernard/Dane mix. She not a fan of kids or cats.
Not good with: cats, small animals, kids, men
Crate trained: yes but she has free roam in her foster home and is not destructive. She does steal shoes and move them around the house but has not chewed them up
Challenges: Odessa is fearful and will need a patient adopter willing to build her confidence and teach her she is safe in this new world.
Any Medical issues? Odessa was spayed on 4/22. She seems to have seasonal allergies but is managed with Apoquel
What would be the best kind of home?Odessa needs a calm, quiet home without any children or small pets. Her ideal home would be with a single woman who wants a best friend and protector of her home. She would prefer a fenced in yard in a country setting without neighbors close by. She needs a patient adopter who is willing to earn her love and give her the pampering she deserves. She would prefer not to live in an active household with frequent company or any child visitors.
Fostered in South Williamsport, PA.
