Odie is a male, Maltese x and close to 5 years old.
He loves walks, sticking his head out the car window and meal times. When not walking he is relaxed and chilled at home. He has had his lower two tooth removed due to infection. Due to this sometimes it can look like he has a snarl on his face but its just the way his teeth sit 😬
Odie is not good with other dogs and takes some time to warm up to new people. When taking him for a walk he pulls on the lead. Any dogs that come across your path Odie will bark, pull on the lead and lunge. When no other dogs are in sight then walking is no problem.
When meeting new people Odie can growl and try to nip. You must show him authority and leadership and give him a stern no when he misbehaves in this way.
We found it is best to let Odie come to you rather then approach him for a pat. He settled in and warmed up to us quickly. With professional one on one dog traning these small behavioural issues can be fixed.
Once Odie is comforable he will show you affection with licks to the face, cuddling up on the couch and rolling onto his back for belly rubs. He really is a cute and lovely dog and will want to be close to you.
He sleeps in his own bed at night time but also likes to sleep on the bed with his carers. He is more suited to be an inside dog.
A couple with no children or a single person would be the best family environment for Odie. A family who can give him walks daily and be patient, loving but stern is what Odie needs.
Odie is desexed, microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee is $300 and is currently living in Flinders Park.
