Orville has had more than his share of misfortune. Born in 2006, he arrived at the Sanctuary with lumps, bumps and bruises all over his body. But with the right combination of medical treatment and TLC, Orville now has a smile on his face, a skip in his step and a wag in his tail.
Orville tends to guard his food, and he takes medication for pain and a thyroid issue. He's also a little picky with his doggie friends. But he loves slow strolls, car rides, snacks and splashing around in water. Orville would be a wonderful friend to an understanding person with a gentle touch.
