Opie is a very happy, friendly one year old pup. He's a big goof but so sweet and gets attached very quickly. You can typically find him leaning up against his foster mom or sleeping at her feet. He's been great with the two younger kids in his foster house and after a bit of exploring, has settled right in. He seems to be fully housebroken and does well with being gated/crated during the day and sleeps through the night without issues.

Opie loves to walk and explore the neighborhood but is working on leash training as he's a bit of a puller still anytime he sees something exciting (friends! people! stray paper bags!) he loves playing at the nearby dog park where he's already started making friends with other neighborhood dogs big and small.

We are unsure of how he is with cats at this time, since there are not any in his foster home.

Although he is still underweight we are working on this by feeding high quality food and supplements and he's already starting to show signs of improvement and weight gain. Once he's at a more normal weight he'll be ready to be neutered. Opie will make a great addition to your family.

*****Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love covers NC and surrounding states for adoptions. We require a fenced yard (exceptions made on a case by case basis - NO exceptions for puppies or deaf/vision impaired dogs - no invisible fencing), that stairs in the home be covered with some sort of slip resistant material to prevent injury, that all other animals in the home be up to date on vaccinations as well as spayed/neutered and that all dogs live inside as a part of the family. Our approval process consists of an application, vet and reference checks, phone interview and house check. Please email us for an application or if you have any questions.*****

Adopters are required to sign a contract that we can check on animal at anytime, that the animal has to be returned to us if they can no longer keep them and they must live indoors as a family member. All pets in the home must be up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative and must be spayed/neutered. Fence is required but exceptions are made on a case by case basis.
