Name: Opie Best Breed Guess: Pit Bull Mix Est DOB: 6/13/2014 Gender: Male Comfortable with children: Dog Friendly: Yes Cat Friendly: Yes Fence Required: no Adoption fee: $300 (Adoption fee includes all age appropriate vaccinations, heart-worm test (adult dogs only), microchip implant, and spay/neuter surgery.) Opie completed a 6 week training program so he knows a lot of tricks. He is also crate trained. Opie is a young goofy guy, who has helped us learn what resilience really means. When he first arrived in the shelter in Chicago, you could almost count every bone in his body. Completely emaciated. The shelter life was so stressful and scary for him he struggled to gain any weight at all. He was so thin, that when he would sit or lay down, his protruding bones would press and cause pressure sores on his body. So there he sat, for over 9 whole months.... stressed out, emaciated without being able to put on weight, mentally and physically deteriorating. That's when we saw him, and knew that we couldn't let him sit there for a moment longer. Opie was lucky enough to receive an amazing 6 week training program before he made the journey to Minnesota and was welcomed by his amazing foster home.
Despite everything he has been through, Opie's tail wags non stop, and he is such a happy boy. He is adjusting to life as a normal dog, and loves getting attention from anyone who will give it to him. He is very food motivated, and will sit like a complete gentleman for even the smallest of treats.
Opie is looking for the perfect forever family, so he will never have to see the shelter life again.
