Op 93 came to the BC SPCA Alberni-Clayoquot Branch when she was only a few weeks old. At this vulnerable age, her owner surrendered Op 93 and her littermates as there were too many dogs in the home to look after. Staff and volunteers rallied behind these youngsters and made sure they received all the care they required to become happy, healthy, and adoptable.
A month later, the pups were flourishing and were ready to be spayed and neutered, tattooed, and adopted. Only days after being spayed, Op 93 had a family come visit her from the mainland, and they instantly fell in love with her. The family adopted Op 93 that very day. They have been wonderful enough to not only send us a written update, but a picture too.
Back on July 23, we travelled over to view OP 93 (see her original “baby “picture). She came home with us that day, and thought you may like to add her picture to your archives. Her name is Indie, because as we drove and played with her that day, she was so small, yet so independent, checking out everything she could get her nose on!
She still checks out everything she can get her nose on. She loves her long walks in the trails and bushes, and is very curious about her sister, Grace the cat. She is very bright, knows lots of tricks and commands already, just at 6 months. We aren't sure she is the Norwegian elkhound you guys guessed at, but that doesn't matter. She has a lot of features of Shepard and Rottweiler, but many people have asked if she is a Kelpie? Perhaps one day we'll test her genes.
Have a great day and thanks for letting us adopt!
It’s wonderful to know that Indie is so smart and learning all these great new commands, helping her become the best dog possible. Thank you so much for making adoption your first option and we can’t wait to see how much bigger this beautiful young girl gets.
