Opie stole my heart the first second I laid eyes on him. He was rescued from being euthanized in a shelter from a lovely rescue called All 4 Paws at just four months old. He is a husky/shepherd mix and my furry soulmate. You know those romantic movies where two people’s eyes meet from across the room and they can’t keep their eyes off of each other…yea it was kind of like that. I went to one of All 4 Paws meet and greets to meet another puppy and that little puppy was late, which worked out so well for all parties in the end because she ended up getting adopted with her sister, and I got to meet Opie first. Once the other puppy showed up, I left Opie’s side and was spending time with her but I couldn’t stop looking at Opie! Funny this was, he couldn’t stop looking at me either! I’m telling you the puppy dog eyes that were exchanged were sickening. I knew that I had to leave there with Opie. There was just that connection that I feel like a lot of dog owners can attest to, when you meet the one you’re destined to take home, you just know. A 3 hour car ride home later and Opie was in his forever home with us.

I would like to say that we chose the name Opie after Son’s of Anarchy’s Opie, not Ron Howard’s Opie, even though people say his personality is more fitting to the latter.
