Are you looking for a spunky, fun-loving goofball to make you feel like the most fantastic thing in the world until death do you part? Ollie is between 1-2 years old, and probably an American Bulldog/ Pit Bull mix with a dash of Amazing Terrier most likely in there somewhere. Okay I made the last part up, but whatever mix Ollie is, it appears that she was carefully designed to make people melt with just one look from her golden eyes. Her favorite thing is chasing her foster brother and sister around the yard, but she also digs working on her sausage-like physique on the treadmill. The likeliness of her accidentally knocking over smaller dogs as she comes in like a wrecking ball is very high, so it would be best for her to have larger doggy friends to bounce off of. She can also be very forward (some dogs have even described her constant kisses as obnoxious) so she does need a canine sibling or siblings that are tolerant of her silly and hyper personality. This doesn’t mean that she is a constant bundle of well-intentioned excitement, however. Ollie is crate trained and will spend time in there without a peep, and she will also lie on her doggy bed while you mop the entire house until you say the floor is dry and she can come off. Her foster has worked hard on maintaining a calm demeanor in the house and would encourage any future adopter to continue to do the same, if only to make sure there aren’t any slip and falls due to a white hippo trying to run up and give leg hugs. Her training has been aimed at very much the same attitude on walks; minding her own business and remaining focused so as not to stick noses somewhere they will not be appreciated. She has no idea why people and dogs do not always love her level of forwardness, but she has been getting better and better about respecting space. She will definitely win the hearts of any guest or visitor to the house, however, as she is a cuddler extraordinaire and her wiggly butt is too irresistible not to scratch. She will bark to let you know that Steve and Nancy from next door are having an argument outside, but will quiet down when you tell her to mind her own business. The mailman has also described her as “pleasant” and “nicer than your other dogs.” She is a quick learner and eager to please- she learned shake with both hands in a matter of days, and also knows sit, down, stay, place, come, and “get out of the kitchen!” Her only fault is being too darn excited to be everyone’s best friend, but one minute spent with her will convince you that you have no problems filling that request.
