    Owen is a 70 pound, very handsome, mixed breed dog who is between 11-12 years old.

    He is a special needs dog in need of an adoptive home. Owen is mostly blind andhe’s being treated for IMPA (immune-modulated polyarthritis). We are told he has been in remission for 2 years. Owen needs a home with someone who can afford his vet care and medication. His adopter needs to commit to continue the care he’s been receiving by his current owners. Owen’s family is ready to talk with potential adopters about Owen’s care. They want to find the best possible home for him.

    Because Owen has an autoimmune disease, he cannot be vaccinated. He does well with other non-threatening dogs but care will need to be taken because of his immune system. Owen is not a dog who can frequent dog parks. Owen has not lived lived with or been observed around cats. He lives with kids and is good with them. However, children must be old enough to understand treating Owen gently because of his arthritis.

    Owen enjoys his daily walks; keeping him moving is important. He can stay alone without any issue and last quite a while before he needs a potty break. In his current home he spends the day in his family’s laundry room while his people are at work but he has a dog door to use to get outside. We are told Owen is also crate trained.

    Before being adopted at the age of about 1 years old, he had a rough start as a puppy. He needs a little time to warm up to new people but once he does he’s a very sweet boy. Owen loves being brushed and playing with his people.
