Five-year-old Ollie is a big boy (16 pounds) who is very shy and submissive, but with the help of his foster mom, he is gaining some confidence. He is super sweet and loves to sleep on the couch snuggled up to the person right next to him. Being picked up, however, is stressful for him and prompts him to roll over or pee submissively. He is learning, though, and is already doing better!
Ollie has some health issues. He gets biweekly baths, sprays and a monthly oil bath for his sebaceous adenitis, and he is currently being evaluated for some issue with his eyes. Other than that, he is easy to care for – he is house, leash and crate trained, comes when called, gets along with other dogs, eats and travels well, loves his naps, but also likes going for walks.
Ollie would do best in a not-so-busy household, preferably with no young children and another dog that can teach him how to be more confident.
Oliver is being fostered in WA.
A fee will be requested to adopt this dog. The recommended fee amount will be based on the dog's age, and medical and behavioral issues, if any. A completed application is required if you are interested in adoption. Thank you for considering a rescue dog!
