Owen needs a caretaker or foster! Won't you consider helping him get a new start?
Introducing Owen! He’s an approximately eleven-month-old, 42-lb Australian cattle dog mix (possibly with hound) currently being fostered in Sarasota, FL (Sarasota County). Owen may be the biggest lovebug you will ever meet! He just wants to spend time at his person’s feet. When he’s not loving on his human, he enjoys running zoomies in the yard. He enjoys playing with toys, but he especially enjoys playing with a dog friend. Having a canine companion would definitely be a plus! It appears Owen is ok around cats; however, he may chase if they run. Owen also enjoys going for walks and investigating things slowly and carefully. After living in a hoarding situation, Owen is learning about self control and trust in his foster home. He is learning basic commands, such as sit, down, place, come and leave it. He loves to learn and is easy to reward! Owen would benefit from additional training to help with his boundaries and confidence. Owen is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm negative, house trained and crate trained. Due to Owen’s youth and exuberance, he would do best in an adult-only home or a home with older children (no toddlers). Because Owen likes to run and explore, he requires a home with a fenced-in yard, preferably a six-foot one.
