Oliver's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Oliver's Story...
Oliver is a one year old Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix who came to ACL from another high volume shelter. Smart and affectionate, this lil' guy is 100% terrier! Though Oliver is a little barky and nervous here at the shelter, he showed himself to be active, super playful, affectionate, and goofy in his foster home. Oliver just can't get enough of fetch! Oliver is an insecure young guy who has clearly never had the comfort of a solid, consistent, reliable family. Because of this, Oliver needs to be with a single person who is interested in building a bond with him, and he would definitely LOVE to do an agility class that would help him build confidence. Oliver is also uncomfortable with other dogs living in his home, since they make it harder for him to feel comfortable and secure. Our goal for Oliver is an experienced home with one adult and no other dogs where he can learn to trust, love, and be secure. He'll make up for his worries by being the gosh darn cutest dog you've ever seen! If you'd like more info on Oliver, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oliver, a Oak Park Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Oak Park, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Oak Park.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Park already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oak Park breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Park paves the way for another one to be saved.
