Hi, my name is Oliver! I was found as a stray in NY and wound up at their Animal Control where I was set to be put to sleep before Eleventh Hour Rescue stepped up and saved me. Boy, was I scared! I was extremely emaciated and sick with a lingering kennel cough that I just couldn't seem to shake. Who knows the last time I was fed! But the amazing people at EHR nursed me back to health and put some weight on me by making sure I have plenty to eat. I'm now ready to find that forever family to spend the rest of my life with.
My dedicated volunteer friends make sure that I get out of the kennel a lot. We go to fun places like the park, agility classes each week, on hikes, Dairy Queen, and they even take me home for visits sometimes! I love to go for rides in the car. You should see my tail wag when I get to sit in the front seat! And if you pet me while you're driving- boy, am I in heaven! I like to go on walks and I try not to pull on the leash because I know that people don't like that. In fact, I enjoy taking time to stop and smell the roses and you may have to pull me a little bit to get me to go! There is just so much to explore - we didn't have all those great scents in NY! I like to play in the yards at the kennel too. My favorite is when I bow down low to the ground and then pounce up and run around, watching if you're going to follow me. Sometimes I get to have play dates with some of my kennel friends. I enjoy being around other dogs and I am very mellow with them. I'm great in a home environment; I just like to relax and be with you! My volunteer friends I'm so loving, loyal, and goofy- whatever that means!
While I don't like to live in the past, some things are hard to leave behind. Have you ever been so hungry that your body starts to eat itself? I have and it's a hard feeling to forget. When I see food in front of me now, I sometimes forget that I will never have to worry about having enough food again. I only ask that you don't touch my food or food bowl after you've fed me. I am currently working with a fantastic trainer who knows my past and needs, and is helping my volunteer friends work with me. I will need a loving owner who will be understanding of this and willing to follow plans set in place by my trainer.
I'm a loving boy that just wants a forever home. Please consider filling out an application today!
