Odin and his brother came into our care from another agency so unfortunately we do not have a lot of background history. Odin is a very nice boy, he is playful and friendly with people and is very food motivated! Odin and his brother Sif initially appeared bonded, but after spending some time in care they seem to thrive when apart, so do not need to go to a home together.
Odin is full of energy and will need active guardians who will keep him stimulated and will dedicate a fair amount of time to getting him out to wear off his energy and help with some potty training. He likes his stuffed animals and enjoys a good frozen kong!
Since we don’t have a lot of history on Odin and based on what we have observed since he’s been in our care, we would recommend Odin not go to a home with other dogs, small animals, or younger children. Odin will benefit from further training and would be a great candidate for lessons with an AnimalKind trainer.
If you’d like to learn more about Odin or are interested in adoption, please follow the steps below:
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic our adoption process has changed. Please visit our website spca.bc.ca/adoption/how-to-adopt/ for more information and to apply for the animal you are interested in. All adoptions are by appointment only once we have received and approved an application.
Also due to the high number of applications we receive for our animals, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further review their application.
Thank you for your interest in adopting from us!
