Hi, My name is Odin!
Do you love predictability, order and togetherness? Me too! I am a handsome 6 year old Catahoula mix with a heart of gold. I am usually very calm and mellow and I love being near my people. I am a medium sized boy. I weigh 55 pounds and have a very attractive merle coat. I am healthy and neutered – also up to date on my vaccinations.
I am looking for a very special home. I need to be in a no-kids home where I am the only pet, and where there is not a lot of coming and going. I would very much love to be the cherished companion of a single or couple. I am great hanging out by myself while you are at work, too.
I really am a great dog. I suffer from anxiety when I am around other pets or a lot of commotion, and my owner has to find me a new home where I will have a much more calm environment and life. I’m not a “dog park” or “hiking trail” dog, but I am definitely a “lay at your feet”, “steadfast friend” type of dog.
My favorite things are laying in the sun, hanging with my people, learning new tricks for treats, and playing for short periods of time. I will make a great friend and companion for the right owners. Please offer me a quiet, adults-only, pet-free, predictable forever home today. I can’t wait to meet you.

Odin is calm and mellow in the house. He likes to sleep in the sun somewhere comfortable or near his people. He likes meeting people. He will play with toys with his people for short periods. Odin is anxious, which gets worse when there is noise or a lot of activity. He enjoys short walks in familiar places. He likes short trainjng sessions with treats and learning new things.
Odin’s Current Home Environment
It is a single family home. There is not a fenced yard so Odin goes on short walks on the leash. Because of kids and schedules our home can be unpredictable and at times chaotic.
Odin’s Current Family:
We are a mom and 2 kids, 11 and 13. There are 3 cats in our family too.
Odin’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Odin likes chew toys with squeakers and tug toys, though mostly plays with them when people initiate play. He plays search and finds hidden toys. He loves to eat, really likes peanut butter and just about any treats, and enjoys walks in the neighborhood. He likes to hang out near his people while we are making dinner, watching tv, and he often sleeps on a bed. He really likes training sessions.
When you talk to Odin he cocks his head and perks up his ears- very cute. He will pile all the couch cushions up to sleep on them.
Why is Being Rehomed?
Anxiety and animal aggression. Odin has fear aggression towards other dogs. I have worked with a behaviorist and that reactivity has lessened, but not having a reliably dog free outdoor space is hard. He recently attacked a cat diring a time of high anxiety. Our home can be noisy and the kids come and go between my house and their fathers, so Odin’s anxiety is difficult to control. I think he could thrive in a quiet, predictable, pet free home. He has redirected after an encounter with a dog and bit me; he has not shown aggression or unfriendliness to people.
Odin’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
A home with one or 2 adults, that is quiet and predictable, with no children or other pets. Potential adopters should have experience with reactive dogs, willing and able to live with his tendency towards anxiety, and be willing to accept that Odin will never go to dog parks, hiking trails, etc, or be trusted around other dogs and cats, but instead will be a happy house dog. I’d like a home that will continue training him in obedience, tracking (if possible) or other activities to keep his brain happy.
