Oliver is our little 9-10 pound chihuahua who is looking for his forever home. He is hoping that he will find an adoptive family who will give him the nurturing home he deserves.
Oliver has a wonderful temperament: sweet, well behaved, gentle, loyal and fun. He is 7 years old but is as active as a 3 or 4 year old dog. He loves to play fetch, go for long walks, and stick by your side as you move around the house. While he is shy at first, he gets very attached to the people in his life. Once he knows you he loves to curl up in your lap or sit next to you on the couch.
He adores other dogs, both big and small. He is elated when he is at the dog park. he would love to find a forever home with another dog in it.
Oliver is gentle and patient with children, but he is sometimes rambunctious when playing so should not be adopted by a family with small children. A family with older children would be fine.
He is house trained and walks perfectly on leash. He knows "sit", "come", "up", and "no", and is currently learning "stay" and "shake". He is a people-pleaser and is a bright and fast learner. He has the potential to learn any new tricks that you might want to teach him.
Oliver is a very special dog. He is such an amiable little fellow, and will quickly become a cherished member of your family. You are guaranteed to fall in love with him. And he'll love you right back in return.
Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial medical and other costs in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we must charge an adoption fee. The adoption fee for Oliver is $250.
If you are interested in adopting Oliver, please complete our online adoption application at http://www.gratefuldogsrescue.org/adoption-process.html. One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the SF Bay Area.
