A1360784 at the East Valley Animal Care and Control Shelter (Los Angeles)
Odin is a very sweet Staffie-mix boy. He's black brindle and about 10 months-old. I met him through puppy socialization classes. Unfortunately I never met his owners-his parents were the ones that took him to class every week, got his vaccinations, and even took him to get neutered when he was the right age. He was in the middle of obedience courses, heading his way into a Good Canine Citizen test, before his owners pulled the plug and placed him at this high-kill shelter. They said he was too destructive and couldn't be left alone for hours on end. He is 70 lbs. and a bit chubby IMHO so I believe he just wasn't exercised enough.
His trainers have been trying to rescue him, but unfortunately everyone's hands are tied. They're doing their part and offering free in-home classes to the family that takes Odin in. I've also dressed him up for the holidays in hopes that a family will find him endearing. He is a nice, sweet, and very calm boy. Of course when I visited him he was jumping for joy, especially when he smelt my pup on the sweater too.
Below is a video of Odin to get a better picture of his personality. Odin is very patient and soft compared to my pup (the little blue one). He will make a great addition to a family who understands pitties and will take the time to exercise him. He will submit to other dogs and has a gentle soul. He has the potential to be a therapy dog, but we're just hoping that Odin will get adopted soon so that he doesn't spend his first birthday in the shelter or worse...
