Meet Oliver...This feisty redhead is a one-year-old, 11-lb Australian or Norwich Terrier mix -- smart, charming, spunky, good-natured and very playful. He needs plenty of exercise to expend is high energy level and prevent his getting into mischief. Oliver loves kids and adults and plays well with other dogs. He will do best in a home with a doggie playmate who matches his energy level.
Orphaned and living by his wits in the woods near a major thoroughfare, Oliver eluded capture by rescuers for two weeks. His resilient spirit served him to overcome his circumstances to become a charming, good-natured, playful little companion.
His foster mom was first attracted to his blonde Mohawk, and his scrappy yet sweet personality. Agile and alert, Oliver enjoys problem-solving, and likes to play chess...oops! I mean chase...with his foster siblings. In true terrier fashion, he occasionally likes to 'boss' the other dogs around in a good natured way. He is truly a sweetie pie at heart, loves to give kisses and be held and carried like a baby. He learns quickly and will do best with an owner who understands and challenges his high intelligence.
The DogBreedInfo.com description fits Oliver to a T: The Australian Terrier is a tough, cheeky little fellow with courage that reminds people of a much larger dog. It has boundless energy and is very loyal, showing great affection for its immediate family. Its extraordinary intelligence makes it a responsive and very protective companion. It is an alert, amusing and loveable little dog. Spirited, curious, and self-assured, it has very keen hearing and eyesight, making an excellent watchdog. It wants to please its master and is more easily obedience trained than most other terriers. This breed is not snappish.
Oliver is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm- and flea-preventative. Please contact Brenda at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain an adoption application and schedule a meeting with the little genius, Oliver.
