Oka - Rescues 2the Rescue



Oka is a 1-year-old, neutered, Border Collie mix. Oka loves to play with toys and really enjoys hunting! He has great engagement for food rewards as well. Oka has been coming along very well in his obedience training, and has very nice manners. He loves to tug and retrieve and has fun playing with anyone who wants to engage with him.
