Now Fostering in New England!!
How happy is this fella?!
If you are looking for a friend to play ball or run with then Walter Oliver is your guy. He was given two names to represent his big personality. Walter has a beautiful block head and small, muscular body and wants to run and play everyday. He loves to hike and can show you around the Blue Hills. He loves his toys and will relax with a kong or rawhide when it is quiet time.
Found as a stray wandering the streets, Walter had an injury to his tail - an extreme case of 'happy tail' that required two tail amputation surgeries to correct. His tail may be pretty short now, but his happiness level is still off the charts. He still wiggles that tail and bum and loves to get belly rubs from his new friends!
Walter Oliver is a strong boy and will require training to perfect his leash walking skills, as well as basic doggie manners. He is food motivated and takes treats gently. He is crate trained and doesn't have accidents in the kennel. However, he has learned the boarding schedule and may need time to adjust to a new schedule in a home environment. Walter will do best in an active home and his larger than life personality may be too much for small children.
