(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Spayed or Neutered,
OGLE (pronounced OH-gleh) is a 2.5 year old 65 lb mix DNA says German Shep/Pit/Foxhound ….. She has a gorgeous short haired black/gray/brown coat, which is where her name comes from - Ogle means charcoal in Latvian. She has quite a few nicknames too … Ogie and Ogels and Ogeley-bogely and a whole bunch of other silly variations.
Ogle is 2 years old … raised with love in a foster home with kids and dogs and all her siblings, she was adopted at 8 weeks and now finds herself in need of home again.
Ogle is a beautiful, strong, athletic, intense, smart, loyal, excels at basic obedience.
She is calm and sweet in familiar situations and with her pack of humans; a family of three including two adults and 12-year old son. She adores her extended family two adult children, my parents, family friends, and our neighbors. She is aloof with new people, but if you ignore her and give her 5-10 minutes to accept you she warms up and you will be friends for life.
Ogle enjoys working … using her nose, hiking, seeking prey, protecting her family she is medium engery but high interest: Her favorite toys are those squishy orange chuck-it balls. She will chase them, snatch them out of the air, and sometimes even give them back so we can throw them again. She also likes the flirt pole and playing tug. But even better are rocks. She is completely obsessed with large rocks. She licks them, paws at them, and pushes them around the yard with her nose. I’ve never seen anything like it! …. This is indicative of high prey drive so for this girl we would like no cats, she would probably thrive as the only pet queen of her castle.
She knows her basic obedience was raised with behavior management through positive reinforcement and counterconditioning. She is food motivated, very clever, and quick to learn. She knows her basic commands (sit, down, drop it), plus spin, and up to jump up for a treat. We continue to work on stay, come, leave it, and place. She responds to all in a controlled situation but she can be easily distracted especially outdoors with all kinds of stimulation and things happening.
She walks well on leash with a good handler, but is visibly on alert if there are other people and dogs around, and sometimes has trouble focusing .., she will pull and if allowed she will bark and react to dogs, motorcycles, bikes, people running up from behind (joggers) Ogle much prefers long hikes in the woods to walks on busy village streets.
She tolerates other dogs she is familiar with but truly isn’t comfortable with other dogs, she struggles at the dog park and just hasn’t figured out how to play well with other dogs
Of course she is housebroken, spayed, microchipped, and crate trained; she sleeps in a crate in the sons room each night.

Ogle’s family loves her but are seeking to rehome her due to a personal situation they not the right fit for her and cannot meet her needs.
Ogle would thrive in a home - a low-traffic household with no kids, no cats, no small dogs. She enjoys being outside and would love a large, private, and fenced yard to romp and sniff around in hunting rocks lol … She responds very well to confident handlers and would do well with a parent who is dog-savvy and ready to take a leadership role with her, as well as the time, she is still young and has exercise needs that should be met. We would love to see her continue her training as she is so very bright and she loves loves loves working !!
She really is such a good girl will be an amazing companion and lifelong and loyal friend.
She is spayed, vaccinated, happy and healthy !!
