Odin is definitely that Tall, Dark and Handsome fella that is ready for his second chance at life. He is an XXL Great Dane who currently weighs in around 145lbs, has wonderfully natural ears, great personality, and a tail that beats the heck out of you.
 
Likes: Odin LOVES food, he loves his eyes rubbed and absolutely loves his ears rubbed and the moans he makes when you do it will certainly prove it. (If you have ever seen the show Parks and Rec the bunion scene with Ron Swanson and Andy, the moans he makes is very similar!) He loves to be outside running, taking walks, car rides, TREATS, and just being loved on.
 
Dislikes: Odin really does not have any dislikes. He is curious about everything. I can’t say that he loves chickens, but he has not won his battles with any of them yet. He has been around cats and most of the time he doesn’t pay attention to them, but if they run he wants to chase them.
 
Personality: Odin is very even keel and happy. He is fine spending the day on the couch by himself -he has free roam of his area. However, he does have a full-sized sectional couch to himself with a large screen TV and we deliver his food and water...so now, after writing this, I see why he is so even keel and happy when I come to his area of the house! Hmmm...I see now that we have been trained!!
 
Temperament: Odin is a happy dog.  He is eager to please. He knows sit and paw and to wait when he is told to when his food is given to him. He does not really bark much, doesn’t tear up anything, he gets really excited when it's time to go outside or  go on walks. He will hop right up in the car for a car ride.
 
Energy level: Odin is full of energy when it's time to first go outside or take a walk.  But give him about 15-20 minutes to get the zoomies out and he is more calm. Odin gets excited for treats and when it's time to eat. He loves food and honestly he could stand to gain about 10 more lbs. He is pretty lean now, but is doing a good job gaining weight from when he came to MTM.
 
Favorite activities: Odin's favorite activities would be eating, getting treats to eat, seeing you when you come home from work, taking walks, getting to run freely with no leash, and taking car rides. Odin really just goes with the flow of what you want to do.
 
Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: He has been around cats, chickens, goats, sheep, cows, etc, and is very curious of them and wants to play with them. With cats, he has been around them and if they run he will chase them, but if they are sitting around he hasn’t seem to really care that much about them. He understands the word NO, and picks up on things quickly so with some work, he will probably have a cat bestie in no time. He has been getting exposure to other dogs and could really care less about any of them. He really wants to play. He is a little kid in a big dogs body! He has not been around any children, but there have been no signs of aggression with him.
 
Not good with: Odin does not love chickens, but he has not won any battles with them. He chases them, and has chased the cat when it has run from him, but has not been aggressive at all.
 
Housetrained: Odin is working on his potty training and has been successful about 90% of the time. He wears his belly band through the day while being lazy on the couch and if he drinks a lot of water before we leave for work he has had a full belly band when we have gotten home. Since he arrived (a little over a month ago) he had one accident. The belly band is kept on him while he is in the house and he doesn’t mind it at all. He even comes and stands for you to put it on him.
 
Crate trained: Odin is a very tall Dane, and once it was noticed that he was not destructive, he has had free roam of his area in the house. Which is a huge unfinished basement area.
 
Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? Odin should have a fenced yard just to give him parameters of his area. He is currently being fostered on a farm so he has free run outside after all farm animals have been put up for the night. He is curious of the animals at the farm but has never jumped a fence, tore up a fence or tried to get out of a fence. He has a field that he gets to run and play in and he loves that!
 
Walks well on a leash? Odin, walks well on a leash, he pulls some, but if he is told to stop pulling he will stop. He has a neck collar, and a harness and he does not mind either being put on him for walks. On walks he does like to come back to you to hear what a good boy he is and just to get loved on then he is back into business with walking again.
 
Challenges: Odin hasn’t really presented too many challenges. He came in very under weight and had some basic vetting and has done fantastic on every trip to the vet. He does great with his potty training 90% of the time. He is a leaner so 140+ lbs is a lot to lean up against you, but it's because he wants to be loved on.
 
Any Medical issues? No known medical issues at all. He does get probiotics in his food daily.
 
What would be the best kind of home? One that can give him lots of love. He is so ready for it, and deserves it! He could really fit in any home, as long as he can get walks and lots of pets. Odin is a sweetie!!
