He might not be the King of Asgard or Thor and Loki's father, but foster boy Odin certainly does have one superpower - cuteness! That's right, Odin is on the available page and he's looking for a place to hang his crown and a throne to sit on! Might you have room for a boy who thinks he's royalty? Then read on and see if Odin is the pup for you!
This handsome boy was surrendered to FBRN when his OCD and anxiety became a little too much for his previous family to handle. Odin has some toy and food aggressiveness that made his family wary and they decided to surrender him to FBRN in order to find him a home that could better handle his quirks.
Aside from a few itchies, Odin is a healthy, mostly happy Frenchie! He loves to play with his toys, to play fetch, or to wrestle around with other dogs! His foster mom describes him as a "hyper, happy dog with more energy than many Frenchies his age." However, he is a dominant dog and will play well with other dominant dogs so long as there are no toys involved.
Odin would not do well in a home with cats or children. Odin takes a bit of time to warm up to someone and is very insecure when meeting new people. He will growl and lunge until he feels safe and then will settle down. A quiet home would be just the ticket for Odin. A lot of comings and goings would probably only exacerbate his insecurities. Tell us about your experience with insecure dogs in your application.
Odin is just as smart as you'd expect the King of the Valhalla to be. He is potty trained, crate trained, and knows quite a few commands - including sit, stay, and down! Attaboy, Odin!
The perfect home for Odin would be a home with a fenced yard. Because he gets overstimulated very easily, a fenced in yard would be best. Walks can overwhelm Odin, so a game of fetch in the backyard is just the ticket to wearing him out. A good round of zoomies with another fur-sibling would be even better! Do you have a private yard and another dog that you think might be the yin to Odin's yang? Tell us about it on your application!
Odin wouldn't be a great office dog since his anxiety around new people would likely flare up. But if you work from home or are otherwise around the house all day, that would be great for Odin! He'd love to have a person to hang out with - once he warms up to you of course!
Odin will need a family that understands it takes time for him to warm up to you. He needs patience and love and we know that the perfect home is out there for him somewhere. Once Odin realizes he's safe and secure he's a great snuggler and will be your shadow, keeping an eye out for his person at all times.
Odin's foster mom has fallen hard for his cute mug! She has a special message for potential adopters:
"Odin is an amazing and wonderful dog, once he trusts you. He didn't like me at first, but after our car drive together he realized he could trust me and soon we became best buds. He loves to cuddle and play, including cuddling in bed if I'd let him. He gives kisses and enjoys pets. Aside from any food or toy possessiveness, I can say that I trust Odie and have no fear around him. He is a little love bug and deserves an adopter that understands his quirks and will love him through them."
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo. Except in rare or unusual cases, adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family. In rare or unusual cases, FBRN may be able to assist in transporting a dog to a volunteer near the adopter's home, but the expense of transporting the dog must be the responsibility of the adopting party.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people's private homes. For the foster families' safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don't set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
Odin, hopes this gets you some great treats. Ginny sends her love. Cynthia Carroll
