9 YEARS! For 9 years I've lived at the shelter and been waiting for a forever home. I am known as the top dog at the shelter...I rule with a gentle confidence and thus have earned the respect of the other residents. I am VERY affectionate with people and will follow at your heels as you go about your chores. At 10 years old I am settled and ready to make someone very happy. I'm not to big, only around 45-50 pounds, the perfect fit in any home. I would enjoy a nice fenced in yard with a shady tree, perhaps a dog companion or two (as long as they're not alfa dogs) and crackling fires in the winter to enjoy my retirement. If you think you might want to take a chance on a handsome fella like myself, call my friends at the shelter, and tell 'um Obie sent ya! Check me out soaking in the giant water tub...I just love the water!!
