Handsome Obi originally came to us following a relationship breakdown, he had been in the same home for 5 years and his owners were heartbroken to have to part with him.
Poor Obi's journey did not get any easier after this, he was adopted twice but returned to us - all within the space of a few months!
We were devastated for all of the upheaval this beautiful, loyal boy had endured and are now desperate to find him some consistency in a home with someone who will be committed to him for the rest of his life.
Although he is crossed with a Malamute, he is primarily German Shepherd but very large in size! Obi is a beautiful dog, he is typical of the breed in that he can be protective and unsure of new people initially so care will need to be taken when introducing him to strangers. However once introduced to new people properly, he quickly makes friends. He loves a good fuss and likes to jump up and give kisses!
Although Obi is a friendly boy with those he knows, like most dogs he becomes nervous at the vets and for this reason will need to wear a muzzle while being examined. He is not bothered by this and is okay with having a muzzle put on.
Unfortunately despite living with dogs in his younger days Obi can be reactive towards other dogs on walks and will need a strong and sensible owner, preferably someone with experience of German Shepherds. Ideally he should be walked at quiet times, in quiet/open plan areas. He does not like cats or small animals and will need to be the only pet in the home.
In the home Obi is well behaved and is happy to be left for a few hours. He is clean, quiet and non destructive, spending most of the time sleeping. He also travels well in the car.
Obi will need an adult only home without any visiting children or children planned for the future.
Obi desperately deserves some consistency in his life, he needs an experienced owner who will put in the work to help him feel secure again and allow him time to settle. His new owner must be prepared to make several trips to and from the rescue in order to form a bond with him before adoption. This will then progress until a slow introduction into the home so please bare your location in mind when inquiring about him.
Obi does have some breed related hip problems and requires a veterinary prescribed diet of Hills Joint Care JD. He does not require medication for this at the moment but this may change as he ages.
We have found Obi to be a sweet boy who we believe will make a fabulous, loyal friend. With us Obi is a big, daft teddy bear and we love him dearly. We desperately hope that the right person will come forward for him and get to see the beautiful dog that he really is.
