A volunteer writes: Need an excuse to get up in the morning and do your exercises? Meet Ogie and excuses be gone! Lively and fun, he greets each day with a big smile, ready to play and expend some energy. Joining us when his owner became ill, we’re told Ogie loves people and will actively approach and greet them. There are no strangers in Ogie’s world, everyone is a friend. Intake notes state that he approached everyone, greeting all with kisses. Awwwww. Ogie showed off his housetraining skills, does pull on the leash so a harness and some leash training will go a long way, and being off leash to run in the backyard was perfect for him. We’re told that he loves playing with balls, chewing on bones, is used to being loose in the house when alone, plays a little rough with other dogs, and loves baths. In the backyard Ogie loved going into the pool to retrieve a ball, played with the water a bit and had a great time. Smart dog to play in the pool in the brutal heat. He’s an awesome dog, his smile will light up the room, and his fun and friendly personality will ensure that there are no strangers in your life. No doubt that if we were still in school, Ogie would be voted Mr. Personality as he oozes charm and good will. Come meet him today.
Ogie is a 5 year old gray and white large breed dog. His owner bought him from a store and they kept him until the owner became ill and was unable to care for him anymore. He has no known health problems and has been to the vet in the past year.
Ogie is very friendly around strangers he will actively approach and greet them. He is a little rough when playing tossing his weight around. He plays a little rough with other dogs as well he hasn’t spent much time with cats.
Ogie is a little hard to control he likes to pull at the leash and has a lot of energy. He isn’t bothered by loud noises or storms. He does have some accidents in the house peeing in corners at times. Ogie loves baths and will play in the water while being bathed. He has his nails cut by a vet because he tends to run away. He enjoys being brushed and scratched.

DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
8/22: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Ogie allows approach, but does not seek out interaction from dogs. He follows and solicits attention from human handlers.
Upon intake, Ogie was active and social.
During his initial medical exam, Ogie was active, tense, and resisted handling.
Ogie’s previous owner described him as having a high level of activity. He is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
