Hi, I’m Stoick!
The staff at the OHS call me an Explorer! Explorers are self-starters with high exercise needs who are ready to make their own itinerary for the day. They love adventure and need to keep busy, but prefer not to have to fit too much socializing into their calendar. They enjoy the companionship of select people and while they may enjoy a good belly rub from time-to-time, they are often happy to find a great spot to sit or play independently. Good daily activities include running miles with you on empty trails, joining on long distance bike rides, or chasing their ball until the sun goes down. If you’re looking for a resourceful, active companion who won’t need to go busy places with you, consider an Explorer!
Mental exercise is an important part of an Explorer’s day. Good mental activities include using a food dispensing puzzle for meals, frozen treats, food-stuffed toys, mixing it up with a variety of chew toys, hiding food and toys for them to sniff out, and playing training games!
I am overweight (currently weighing in at 117lb), and I will need a veterinarian to oversee my weight loss plan. I need a prescription veterinary diet.
I am missing some teeth. I will require regular veterinary check-ups to monitor these areas of my mouth for any changes. A vet may recommend dental care for this condition in the future.
I have some teeth that are worn. This is likely due to me chewing objects that are too hard. I will require regular veterinary check-ups to monitor my teeth. In the future I may need dental care for this condition.
I have behaviour needs; please contact an Adoption staff member to inquire about me Stoick A217896.
