At age 13, Shadow was left at a shelter by his owner who then announced it to ODH, hoping we would give him a home. We did find a Final Refuge home where he settled in very quickly, so happy to be wanted and safe again. He’s a basically healthy fellow with impeccable manners who adores his ODH mom. When another ODH poodle was added to the family he sulked for a bit and then decided that he could enjoy the company – ever the well behaved sort.
He’s enjoying being a bit spoiled and making friends everywhere he goes.
Update: After a wonderfully long time in his Final Refuge home (over 3 years), it was finally time to say good bye to dear Shadow. He was his mom’s little shadow and will be greatly missed.
