Cattle Dog / Hound / Mixed (short coat) : : Male (neutered) : : Adult : : Medium
Owen is an approx. year old, 42 lbs. red Heeler mix (possibly with some hound), being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL. Some say I am the world’s most energetic and curious pup, but that is because everything is new to me! I have spent the last several weeks trying to figure out a world where I don’t have to fend for myself, and I have learned many manners and rules along the way. I love meeting new doggie friends and rarely meet one I don’t like, although initially I can be shy and need just a bit of time to warmup. I am willing to learn anything you want to teach me as long as TREATS are involved. I am very smart and will figure out the new game in no time. I also need a job to do. After a day of playing, running, going for long walks, and chasing birds, squirrels, and lizards, I love nothing more than to snuggle down with my humans right in their lap. Owen does need mental and physical stimulation or he will get into things. He does need to be crated when not being supervised. Since he is part heeler, he does have some herding instincts like trying to nip at the back of heels, etc… His ideal home would be one that understands the heeler breed and what he needs to thrive. Owen is up to date on vaccines, neutered, heartworm negative, microchipped.
