'My name is Ori and I was surrendered to New Leash on Life because my family couldn't keep me in the house. Now I'm looking for my first inside home. When I first came to the adoption center, I was afraid to go through doors. I didn't understand what they were. I'm much better at that now. I used to be shy but I've learned that hanging out with humans is a good thing! After settling in, I started heartworm treatments. Those knocked me for a loop, but I'm so happy to be a healthy boy now. I love a good toy box full of toys to go 'shopping' in. I really adore toys, especially toys that squeak. My favorite is a yellow chicken! Love my chicken!' Ori is a sweet Red Bone Hound/Lab mix, born in 2009, that weighs about 65 pounds. He has gotten used to walking on a leash although when he gets his nose to the ground, the Red Bone Hound in him just has to follow the scents. He would probably do best in a home with a fenced yard. It has been wonderful to see him figure out what toys are and watch him carry them around. Ori is neutered, micro-chipped and current on vaccinations. Thanks to our Angel Fund, he was treated for heartworms and has fully recovered. You can adopt this gentle giant for $40 thanks to our partnership with Best Friends.. **All New Leash on Life dogs must be adopted to families willing to have their pets allowed inside-especially at night. No dog is allowed to be put on a 'tie-out' or chain outside and should be walked on a leash when not in a fenced yard.** (D16-105)
