Oden was completely vetted when adopted, which was made possible by this Sponsor a Pet grant. From his Petfinder profile: “Hi, my name is Oden. I am a 1-year-old neutered male mastiff/Great Dane mix. My owner was evicted from her home and decided it would be better to allow me to find a stable home while she figures things out. So I am looking for an indoor home where I have plenty of room. A fenced yard is a must because I love to go out a few times a day and just run. I have been around a few dogs and seemed fine with them, so if you have another big dog in your home, I might be a perfect friend for your dog. I am house-trained and I love everyone. I am over 100 lbs. so small children might not be the best idea, as I’m young and sometimes don’t realize how big I am. I am a gentle giant and I think I am just a baby. I have learned to do pretty well on a leash and I am very obedient for the most part too.”
