Oliver is a 1 year old Lab and Dachshund mix. Ollie is a sweet boy that was getting picked on in his prior home. He's timid and the other dogs knew this so they constantly picked on him. Sadly, his owners knew for his safety he needed to find a new home. Ollie is great with dogs and would be best in a home with no small children. He needs time to adjust and small kids may not understand his need for space in the beginning. He is a very shy and timid, but loves attention. He will need a family that understand his fears and is willing to work with him. He needs to feel secure before he will show you his sweet side. He enjoys a good game of chase or wrestling. Oliver's favorite is to play fetch. He loves to play fetch. He will play as long as you are willing to throw the toy or ball. His nightly game of fetch seems to be the highlight of his day. He loves to play with his foster doggie siblings. Ollie weighs about 35 pounds, but needs to gain some weight. He is like a big dog, whose legs didn't grow. Ollie has one partially blue eye, which adds to his unique character. He's a sweetheart and deserves a wonderful home. This boy will make a great addition to a family looking for a sweet addition.
Oliver's adoption fee: $250
We do not have a kennel or facility to visit, all dogs are kept in foster homes until their forever homes are found.
Adoption Process: Once an approved application is on file, we will then set up a home visit. At that time we will bring the dog to the home in which you will all be sharing. We ask the entire family to be there that day. If we all agree on the placement, then the dog will stay with you that day.
