An ode to Odie


Odie’s story with the Dumb Friends League began in late May when this handsome, 1-year-old Labrador retriever mix came to our shelter to find his new home. Odie is what you would expect from a young Labrador mix, he’s bouncy, affectionate and has energy to spare.  Odie has a reputation for being what can be best described as an affectionate handful.

His energetic and smart personality has adventure partner written all over it. While at the shelter we’ve learned that he enjoys running, loves to play and he’s smart – like really, really smart. He’s one of those dogs – we’ve all met them – that are too smart for their own good. You might say that he’s in his awkward teenage years just trying to figure out how to be the ultimate good boy.

Still with us? Great! We think Odie might do best in a single dog home, or in a home with a dog that can match his energy level, and we are requiring that he meets any resident dogs before adoption to make sure they’ll get along. Also, we’d like to see Odie go to a home with children that are at least over the age of 10 (so they can navigate those awkward teenage years together).

All this being said, Odie is a great dog and if you are looking for a little more adventure come meet him today. He’s the perfect excuse to take that Friday off work, miss the crowds and climb that mountain you’ve been dreaming about, or the motivation to work on your summer bod’ with a new running buddy. Best of all, we know he’ll make you happy, and at the end of the day, that’s all we really need. He’ll be your best bud; your confidant and he’ll love ya forever.

So, grab those keys, jump in your car and come meet Odie. He’s available for adoption at the Quebec Street Shelter in Denver. His adoption fee is covered thanks to a compassionate person and he’s ready to adventure today!
