Hi, everyone. My name is Oliver, and I am a wonderful Basset boy, or so I have been told. I am about 9 years old, as easy going as they come, and really well behaved but a bit mischievous when foster mom isn't looking. I was rescued from the county shelter. I don't really remember why I ended up there, but rumor has it that I had a problem with someone, maybe a child, so I needed to find someone without kids to take me. I went into boarding for a few days until my new foster mom came to get me. I was soooo excited when she arrived that I barked happily from the moment I was taken from my kennel until I arrived at my new home. Sure is nice to be part of a family again.
I get along real well with my five foster sisters (mom calls them my harem), and love to visit other dogs and people at the dog park, although mom won't let the little kids pet me. I find a comfy spot and settle quietly for most of the day, and by mom's bed at night, but I can get into some (minor, I think) trouble when she isn't looking. I am a bit of a counter surfer like a lot of Bassets, and I managed to get a big bag of dog food out of the closet one night. I will roll over to show how sorry I am when I get caught, and maybe get a tummy rub as well. I get real excited when my leash comes out; I love a ride in the car and to go for walks. I also love it when someone returns home, and will let them know how happy I am that they are back.
I won't be ready for my forever home for a little while as I need to get my AZBHR makeover, but I am up to date on my shots, and I have a microchip. I use a doggy door without fail, eat my meals like a gentleman without bothering the others, and take treats gently. I will ask that my new home be without children, but I wouldn't mind a teen or two. Give me lots of love, and I will give it right back. I will let you know when I am ready to go. Just give me a holler if you would like to visit and get to know me better in the meantime.
