Meet Odyssey Oh my goodness, but Odyssey is one of the cutest dogs. He's just precious. We're so glad we were able to rescue him from a high-kill shelter. He arrived to our safety on June 18, 2020. Odyssey is thought to be a one-year-old American Bulldog/Boxer mix. He weighs 53 lbs. Odyssey has a beautiful white coat with brown patches. His eyes are expressive and his broad and friendly face seems to wear a smile. Odyssey is a little shy at first, but he really loves attention. He's a gentle soul who came from a life of uncertainty. He thrives with positive reinforcement. Odyssey walks well on a leash and enjoys walks in the woods where it's quiet and peaceful. Loud noises frighten him. He needs a strong, yet gentle hand to make sure he doesn't bolt. Odyssey will need a fenced yard. He loves romping and running in the yard, but if bored he's a digger. Making a hole is great fun. Odyssey has not yet formally met other dogs, but he seems to enjoy their company when he meets them through the fence. He barks with happy barks, lots of tail wags and a socially acceptable submissive behavior welcomed by his doggie neighbors. Odyssey is afraid of cats though and will back away. Odyssey is a wonderful young doggo who could sure use some TLC and a bestie companion. He's as beautiful on the inside as he is out. Just a big love bug. If you're looking for your best friend and companion, Odyssey may just be the one. He will be neutered, micro-chipped and fully vetted before going home.
