Meet Octavius


1 year, approximately 35lbs

To start, we don't sugar coat things, so we are going to give it to you straight, because lying or excluding information doesn't benefit anyone, especially the dog. This boy is considered special needs. He has pretty serious separation anxiety and cannot be crated. He will absolutely destroy, escape and harm himself in the process. He has scars on his ears and face to prove it! He is not fully house trained, we believe that anxiety and the kennel environment play a huge role in this. His back legs are wonky for lack of a better term, either a genetic deformity or caused by starvation/malnutrition. Slows him down a little, but does not seem to cause him pain. We started him on cosequin and it seems to help with the stiffness at least. He has a sensitive stomach. We have struggled to find what works for him, but the current diet and supplements he is on has worked for awhile now, fingers crossed that continues! ?

Octavius needs to be in a home with someone who is possibly retired, works from home, or can come home often. He has presented a lot of challenges, but he deserves the best of everything in life. He deserves someone who will love him for the rest of his years. He has probably never known what it is like to live in a real home, with a family. It was apparent he was horribly neglected and probably never knew kindness.

This boy is extremely sweet and affectionate, he desperately wants to be your shadow. He is super playful and loves other dogs his size, larger and young pups, we have no idea how he is with small breed dogs and really needs someone his size to play with. He would be fine with considerate children, but no cats!

If you feel you can provide the environment he needs, please message me. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY! Bouncing him around more than necessary will only make his anxiety worse! He needs stability, someone who will commit to him and his issues!

Adoption fee will be waived to an approved adopter, however, we have invested a lot of time and money into this guy, so a donation of any kind would be greatly appreciated. This is not a "free dog", he requires a high quality diet, supplements, he could develop allergies (blue dog problems), so veterinary care could be costly, he is also going to take some work,. so only inquire if you are financially prepared and willing to put in the time and effort.

Blue coated dogs can suffer from skin/coat, ear, sensitive stomach and other immunological issues, ranging from mild to severe and can become quite costly over their lifetime. A high quality diet and ability/willingness to provide additional veterinary care a must.

PLEASE READ our adoption policies/requirements before submitting a application, thank you!

*Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable. For the large majority of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label. 100% American Rescue Dog!
