This week we’d like to feature one of our favorite dogs at Oregon Humane, Houdini! Houdini - Oregon Humane Society He also has quite a fan club among the volunteers at OHS! Everyone LOVES this boy!
Despite his name, Houdini is not an escape artist! Sweet Houdini is a 5+ year old, 64-pound lab-ish mix who came to us as a stray from Washington County. In the spring, before he was at Washington County, he was at a shelter in Prineville and his name was Elvis. I’m not sure how he got from Central Oregon to Washington County, but I suspect they were able to trace where he’d been thanks to his microchip.
Houdini is a pleasure to take for a walk. He walks so lovely on leash and only pulls when he sees little critters like bunnies and squirrels. Our boy does have quite a prey drive and can’t go to a home with cats or other small animals because of that. He can be picky with some dogs and will need to meet any potential canine companions before going home. He loves playing with toys and loves hanging with his people. He’s an affectionate, handsome fella who knows sit and stay. Houdini would be a perfect hiking or running partner. In fact, he’s on the OHS running team and gets to go for runs a few times a week.
Does Houdini seem like he might be the dog for you? If so, just fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of his profile and schedule a time to come on in and meet him!
