About Opie
Opie is a charmer and loves to be with people! He is a real sweetie who gets along well with other dogs and likes hanging out on the deck with his foster brothers. He came to TSR at over 50 pounds so he is now on a low-fat diet. He enjoys taking walks with one of his foster dog brothers, so that also is helping the pounds to start coming off. Opie is a very social dog and howls when he doesn't know where his people are. He would be very unhappy in a home where he's frequently left alone; even for short times, he needs other dogs around to keep him company.
