Hi! My name is Oliver, but you can call me “Ollie”. I am only 5 yrs old, but boy-oh-boy a lot of stuff has happened to me in my short life. My original owners did not have time to devote to me because they were both in school and working full-time. They decided I needed a family that could spend more time with me and contacted Little Paws. I settled into my foster home without a hitch and did really well until a doxie’s worst nightmare.....I ruptured a disc in my back and couldn’t use my back legs. The folks at Little Paws wasted no time and I had back surgery immediately. I was so hopeful that I would be able to walk again, but that has not happened despite surgery, laser treatments, and physical therapy. It’s been a challenging summer, but I now have wheels and I am SO happy because I can do everything my buddies do. I love being outside when the weather is nice and you should see me move. I am searching for a forever family with a doggy buddy to keep me company, but most important will accept me despite my disability.
Note: Because I am a paralyzed doxie I am looking for a forever family within 100 miles of the Metropolitan Baltimore DC Area. An exception would be made for applicants with experience with paralyzed doxies and are willing to drive to Maryland to pick me up.
If you want to know more about me please contact my foster mom Email Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org
