Super-smart, 7-year-old Obie knows commands including: sit, down, paw, come, stay, drop it, and roll over. A fun guy who would love a human BFF to play with, Obie is a huge fan of toys and tennis balls. After his evening walk, Obie picks out the toy he wants for the night and prances excitedly to his kennel. He has been at the shelter for 1 year and would love to find his forever home.

If you are interested in adopting Obie, or any of our other available pets, please visit the adopt page at You can also come to the shelter Wednesday through Sunday from 12pm to 5pm.
