found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Oliver has accompanied his foster parents on a visit to a nursing home, and he was loved by everyone there. His foster parents haven't exposed him to children, but Oliver's former owner reported that he got along with all the children in the neighborhood as well as the visiting grandkids. He lives with a beagle in his foster home, and the two dogs get along great. Oliver would do well either in a home with a canine companion or by himself. He met a cat at the vet's office when he went for his shots. He sniffed the cat but didn't show any other interest.
Though fetching doesn't appeal to Oliver, he does know the commands Sit, Shake, and Down. He is completely housetrained and uses a doggy door. He is treat motivated, he loves praise, and he responds well to gentle reminders. Oliver looks for approval and loves to be called a Good Boy. He will go into his crate, although it isn't his favorite place. His foster family is working to teach Oliver not to pull on his leash, and they say he gets better the longer they walk. They are also teaching him not to jump up on people. Oliver is just so happy to see everyone that he can't help himself. He also shows affection by licking!
Oliver is crated when his family is away. His foster parents have a digital monitor for watching the dogs from a smartphone app, and they have seen that Oliver initially barks and cries when he is left home alone, but he calms down after about thirty minutes. Because they have discovered that Oliver is something of an escape artist and has gotten out of his indoor crate, the doggy door is also closed when his family is away. If he goes outside while his people are gone, he is likely to bark for extended periods of time or squeeze under the backyard fence. Therefore, he will require careful monitoring and work on recall.
Oliver needs a home where he can be involved in his family's life. He wants to be your sidekick on walks, and he would love to attend public activities like kids' ball games. He is really the perfect "take-along dog." He is an excellent car rider, and he behaves so well in public. Oliver just wants to be near his people. As his foster family says, "When we are home with him, we do not have to entertain him. He is very content just knowing we are around." If you can be around for Oliver and give this good-looking boy a safe place in your home and your heart, please contact his case managers at the e-mail address below.
Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.
Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Oliver.
