Beaumont

Odie is a 5-year-old dish found running the roads in Beaumont. His coat looks like a Dreamsicle with its beautiful markings. Odie is a talker and loves to have morning talks while you prepare his breakfast. He enjoys watching the birds out the window during the day. Not big on toys but litter box trained, we think he would be great in any home. He loves to sit in your lap and have his ears scratched. If you want a big handsome boy, go on down to the shelter before someone else snatches him up.
