Dog Story Oliver aka Ollie is all boy and still a little kid this bundle of energy just wants to have fun and be LOVED. He loves playing with our dogs and can do this for hours. He also LOVES toys and will take each one out of the toy box. He even considers many things toys that aren’t really toys (towels, bath scrunchies, etc.), so he is still learning. Tonight he thought grabbing a potholder and playing keep away was ‘fun’. Counter surfing is also a favorite past time. We keep a good eye on him but even after being reprimanded, he will try again, giving you a ‘what do you mean?’ look when you tell him ‘no’ He knows sit and his name and does well in the crate. We are continuing to work on down and stay and he is doing well. His recall is good as long as he is not distracted (going back to the little boy theme). I say all this as we absolutely love this little guy and he continually makes us laugh! He loves every human and dog he has met. He loves going for car rides. But, I think it will take someone with time and patience to keep up with Ollie and continue on with his training. The boy has so much potential. I have the advantage of primarily working from home and he will go, go, go, and then, crash at my feet while I am on conference calls. My opinion in fostering him for just the short time we’ve had him is that he will do better in a house with older kids or no kids again he has done GREAT with any age kid we have had him around but the fact that he is a kid himself, he needs a household that can provide direction and where he isn’t adding to the chaos. He needs an active lifestyle with someone that has plenty of time and attention for him. Companion dogs that he can play with would be great too. Someone that knows obedience or will take him to obedience training is key. He’s a great dog, just needs some consistency and guidance. So if you are up for the challenge please fill out our online adoption application at www.americanbrittanyrescue.org and mention Oliver. Oliver was surrendered to rescue when his family just couldn’t juggle his energy, training and a new infant in the home. Oliver was kicked by a cow prior to coming to rescue and did have surgery to fix a break in his leg. He has been cleared by his orthopedic surgeon of any restrictions and is ready for a GREAT NEW LIFE and forever home!
