You may adopt me as soon as I am spayed or neutered!

Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Orion is a delicate flower. He requires handling with care and an adopter who wants to spoil him. Though small, he will need a good amount of daily exercise and could be a jogging or hiking companion. He loves toys and when his nerves have calmed, he loves food. Orion is sensitive in general, but he particularly does not appreciate his current hotel accommodations and would like to get the heck out of here and into the lap of luxury as soon as possible. He can stall on leash, particularly when he figures he is going back toward his kennel. He takes some time to get used to new people before he's comfortable with a lot of handling. He is likely to prefer his people much more than others, but has been open to making new human friends. He is probably going to want to snuggle under the covers on the couch with you! CJB
