Ollie’s foster mom says, “He’s a love who wants pets and cuddles and has no hesitation coming for them. Ollie is happiest lounging on the couch with his human.”

Ollie is a great boy. He loves people, is gentle with kids, housebroken and wants to keep his humans in sight as much as possible. Ollie is typically crated when left alone as his crate is his “safe place’ so reduces anxiety when left alone. He is pretty good in the car and lies down once the car is moving. He’s quick when taking treats but getting better and he is improving walking on leash --- he pulls some but he’s learning. Ollie has never been around cats but suspect he’d chase them.

Ollie is a medium/high energy boy who needs daily exercise. He needs a home that will tire him out while giving him love. While he likes kids, he’d do best in a home without young children as Ollie craves a level of peace and quiet…. he’s an old soul at heart. vOllie is perfect in so many ways: loving, human-focused, likes going places and a sweet, let’s cuddle boy. Ollie’s still a work in progress when it comes to other dogs. Ollie is working with a trainer on being around other dogs and we are hopefully but realistically; Ollie may need enjoy being with other dogs. At this point, it’s too early to tell.

Ideal Home: Ollie needs a home that will tire him out while giving him the loving that he wants within a peaceful, quiet environment. A home with young children that make a lot of sudden loud noises would be too much for Mr. Ollie. Having a family around for most of the day would be ideal. His adopter needs to be dedicated to getting him a lot of exercise and working on his dog interaction skills. Ollie will likely need to have minimal interaction with other dogs and live in an only dog home. But that’s OK as Ollie has a lot of love and devotion to give to his new adopting family.
