My name is Odie (#3848).  I am a 2-year old male Goldendoodle with a great personality.   I love to take walks, play ball, explore the outdoors and I really like to run.   It’s been said I’m pretty goofy and lovable, I’m not sure what that means but I’ll be a great lap dog if you’ll let me.  I do love my humans. I would probably love some kids to chase me around and play ball with me.  I might even a great jogging partner.
My one issue is reactivity to other dogs, especially on leash.  I was not well socialized as a puppy, and I am fearful/anxious/ and WAY to excited to meet friends. I have been working with a trainer and I’m doing so much better, but I am still a work in progress.  I no longer react when a dog is across the street if they don’t bark at me, and I like to watch other dogs from a distance. My fosters give me lots of treats and tell me I’m a good boy, so I stay calm!  I am hoping one day I will be able to have some canine friends as I think they would be so much fun but it’s not something I can do without slow intros and a dog who can help me learn boundaries.   ( and humans who know how to create that safe space).   I recently spent time at temp foster who has a lot of dogs and space for me to be separate but still see the other dogs and I didn’t bark at them at all.  They could even come up and say hi to me through the fence.   I was not quite ready for one-on-one interaction yet, but I proved I can get there.   This is all to say if you ( my new human) felt the need to have me be social with other dogs.   If you don’t care about my dog/dog skills and just want a great companion to do fun things with then I’m all in for that too.   My trainer says I’m very smart and eager to please.  I like to do the work, so I’d love to continue learning and exploring and knowing what is expected of me in my new home.  I promise I will be well worth the time you spend with me.
