"Oliver" is a darling 6-year old male Labrador Retriever mix who was surrendered by his owner on October 5, 2016 along with several of his companions who shared his previous home. This handsome boy has a black short smooth coat with a white blaze on his chest, rather short legs, a long body, a long tail, and an adorable face with large floppy ears. "Oliver" has a quiet disposition and a friendly personality. He is being listed as a 'Special Needs Dog' since he appears to have an old injury to his right hind leg and has a little trouble walking :( "Oliver" made a noble effort with one of our kind kennel techs and posed so sweetly for his preliminary petfinder/facebook photos. He will be examined by a vet in the near future. "Oliver" weighs 42 lbs. He has been neutered and has also been given rabies vaccine.
We are a non-profit shelter giving refuge to homeless and abandoned animals in Washington County Ohio. We strive to make their time here as comfortable as possible. We work very hard with our rescue groups to move our animals quickly and safely. We do this because we work for those who have no voice.
Rescue groups are encouraged to contact our Canine Rescue Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Feline Rescue Coordinator (email@example.com)
