Odie was found as a stray by a good Samaritan.

Odie is a lovable goofball who loves people and wants to please. He loves to chase tennis balls and will try to carry two or three in his mouth, but rarely succeeds. He was found wandering in the Lackland area and jumped right in the car with a kind man heading home from work. He had been out on the streets a while and it took him three days to suddenly remember he knew how to sit, shake, and stay. He gets along well with children in the 7+ age group.
