Story
Dog Name: OliverBreed: MalteseSex: MAge: 10.5Weight: 9lbs Medical Needs: Oliver is fixed and up to date on everything but he does have cataracts which cause reduced vision Housebroken: somewhat. If taken out regularly He does good but if not he will go in the houseCrate trained: YesGood in the car: YesGood on a leash: YesEnergy level: Still has some spunk for almost 11!Need a fenced in yard: No Dog Friendly: YesIf yes, does your foster need another dog in its adoptive homes? NoCat Friendly? Yes. Lives with two and doesn't bother them at allKid Friendly: due to his age and vision issues he would do best with no kids If yes, what's the youngest child you'd recommend they be placed with? Special traits that make your foster special or that we need to know about them?  Oliver  was with the same person his whole life and they were unable to continue to take care of him due to a stroke. His whole little world got rocked and he takes a little bit to warm up to new people and can be a little grumpy initially but once he feels safe with you he is fine. So someone that is willing to give him time to adjust and settle before expecting kisses and loving would be best.  He gets excited in the morning when he wakes up and is ready to do his business, eat and then go back to bed  he enjoys walks and gets excited when he knows he is going for a walk. He has as a very calm nature and isn't really vocal but will bark when he can't find you or when he hears someone come to the door.  Fosters Location: New Castle, De Application can be found here: https://www.grrde.org/adoption-application (if you already have an approved application on file email GrassRootsDE@gmail.com and ask the app team to pull your app — ##1938873##

Story
Oliver has had a tough history. He was a rescue after being abandoned as a young pup. My cousin applied and rescued him. Then died of cancer. His girlfriend left Oliver with my Mom. My Mom had a stroke on 12-24 and Oliver is not adjusting to her now having a walker and having some different limitations. He needs a warm lap and someone to sleep with. He has a clean medical record and is UTD on shots. He has several months of heartworm and flea meds and has medical records from Savannah Animal Hospital. He has no physical limitations other than his vision isn't perfect. He does well with another dog. Referred to Grass Roots by JoAnn Murphy.
