It took special negotiating on the part of one RLRR volunteer to gain possession of this dog. A special thanks to her for all she does for RLRR:
"Odin" is about a year old and has lived his whole life on a chain outside an empty house on the reservation. Last weekend, we were able to rescue him and bring him to the Cities. He is completely unsocialized and quite scared, but incredibly sweet.
He had never been indoors, so it was a challenge getting him in the house. He has to be carried! Bathing him was another rather difficult enterprise, since he had to be carried indoors, as well as upstairs. Luckily, for us, not him, he is very thin; so he's not at his full St. Bernard weight.
He has become best friends with Dove, another RLRR dog, and they play non-stop.
