Olive is fearful of strangers and needs to meet new people slowly and on her terms. She is initially hesitant and cautious, and takes time to let a new person into her world. She’s in enrolled in Outbound Hounds Pit and Pals C.L.A.S.S. where she has met many new people and is becoming more comfortable every day. With the help of shelter volunteers, her circle of friends and admirers has grown considerably over the past few months. Olive is now showing her trust and faith in people as she enjoys belly rubs, cheese sticks, and pleasant walks once she’s acclimated.
The right home will include owners who follow up with positive reinforcement training, structure, and gentle support. Her adoption includes Take My Lead training, which provides free private training sessions to assist in the transition from shelter to home life. Olive will bond strongly to people who are committed to her. She is the kind of dog that would be happy to lie around the house all day, but she can get very excited and rambunctious when she greets her favorite people. Consequently, a home without young children would be best for her. A fenced yard would be nice, but isn't entirely necessary. Olive doesn't need a lot of exercise and enjoys her leashed walks with her friends. First thing on her list of must-haves is a couch to cuddle on.
