My name is Oaklee. I am now 6years and 10 months old who has many wonderful years of love to give. I am a sweet boy once I know you. I am starting to give kisses and play with my human. Since I was a breeder in a puppy mill it took me a while to show love since I was never shown it.
Though I am leashed trained, my favorite thing to do outside is run in a fenced yard and bounce like a bunny, which makes my foster parents laugh. l love to exercise, but I am a good, calm boy in the house. I love to sleep next to Autumn inside and coax her to play. So I would do best with a sweet very playful friend, possibly a female would be better. There is a kitty here that I do not bother.
I sit nice for my meals when told. Call me and I will come to you. I sit like a champ for ear cleaning, grooming, and baths. I am very patient when being fussed over.
I wear a belly band and am dry 50% of the time. I have gone on a pee pad with my belly band on. It may be possible for me to be trained to go on pee pads in a small area for breaks. I do my poop outside all of the time.
It does not matter if my new owner is male or female, I will love either one.
If you are chosen to adopt me, please give me time to adjust and I will love you whole-heartedly with hand kisses and playful bounces.
Check out my new professional photos! I am a very handsome boy!
Autumn and Oaklee have been in foster care for just over 6 months. They both have become pretty independent of each other, trusting their foster mom and are no longer frightened. We have determined that they can be separated and no longer will be adopted out as a bonded pair.
Update Monday December 7, 2015
OakLee and Autumn have been fostered in the same home for the past four weeks. It has come to the attention of Foster mom and dad that these two pups should not be separated. They rely on one another for cuddles, company and love. At this time, we will not be adopting out Autumn and OakLee separately. They will be looking for a home together.
My name is OakLee. I am named after my foster mom's family home. You see, there are 5 big oak trees in the yard. She wanted to name me after them because of the beauty of nature and remembrance.
I was in a cage for over 6 years of my life. You would be amazed how happy I am to be free. I love people, love to be pet and love, love, love running outside. I am quite social.
Because I came from a puppy mill, my mouth and teeth are a mess. I lost many teeth, but I can tell you that my mouth feels so much better. And smells better too!
I will be available for adoption after the 19th of November. Foster mom says I have to heal real good first before I can go to my forever home.
I will be looking for an all adult home, I am very fine boned and need extra special care. I also will need some time to get potty trained, this is a whole new world for me and I hope everyone can be patient with me while I learn. I will also need a fenced in yard, we mill pups have flight issues, and boy, can we escape and run fast!
