Hi, I’m Data!
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. With lots of physical and mental exercise to stay happy, an Explorer will settle into a solid relationship with you. 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, giving frozen treats and 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! These exciting activities help to work their mind and tire them out while hanging at home.
I am looking for a home without cats!
I don’t always appreciate unfamiliar dogs in my personal space and I’m not ready to make friends with every dog I meet. I need slow, gradual introductions when making new friends.
