Meet Owen

Meet Owen! This sweet boy is looking for a special home. He loves to play in the backyard, play with his purple ball and kiss his humans. He also loves Kongs stuffed with kibble and peanut butter, Nylabones, his stuffy Taco toy and napping on soft dog beds. Owen is a good snuggle buddy, but is still a young dog therefore is pretty busy and has lots of things to do. Owen likes to help with the laundry by dragging items out of the basket to play “keep away” with. Owen likes to meet friendly strangers and new people. Sometimes he is a little coy or shy at first, but once he knows you want to pet him and snuggle him, he warms up pretty quickly. Owen gets a little nervous in the car, but rides well. He just needs occasional reassurance that you’re here too and everything is ok. He loves to explore new parks with foster mom and we are working on getting used to a leash. We are also working on sitting still for brushing and nail trims, but he is a young guy and intelligent. He learns quickly. He lives with a 11 lb resident dog and a 7 year old boy and enjoys the company of both.

When we rescued Owen this summer he was paralyzed and could not use his back legs and was incontinent. He has been going to physical therapy and has made great strides and while he can use his back legs somewhat, he is still incontinent. We do not know how much more he will improve but Owen is a very silly and intelligent boy who has SO MUCH love and so many laughs to create with you. He's our special needs boy that is looking for a special adopter to love and provide him with whatever he may need.

Owen is estimated to be one year old and weighs 22 lbs. Since we don’t know the dog’s actual genetics, this is just a guess on breed and size when grown. All dogs have had a vet examination, are up to date on all vaccinations, have been given dewormer and heartworm prevention. Dogs over 7 months have been heartworm tested. Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 100 mile radius of Minneapolis. If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at http://www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.
