Ollie-ADOPTED!

Ollie is a very photogenic 6-7 month-old Shepherd/Hound mix male who finds himself looking for a new home. His unique eyebrows look like punctuation marks! He was surrendered to an overcrowded rural county dog shelter by his family who could no longer care for him. We don’t know anything about Ollie’s previous life other than that he had never been on a leash before coming into the shelter. Leash walking is something Ollie is still getting used to as he tends to panic when something is around his neck. He will probably feel more comfortable and confident walking with a harness. Ollie is friendly with other dogs and would do best having a canine buddy in his new home to show him the ropes. He is happy to meet new people but can be a little nervous in new situations. Ollie is a smart pup who picks up new routines quickly and is eager to please once he feels comfortable with his surroundings. He has done well with crate-training so should be able to master the house rules with ease in his new home. Ollie is going to make a great buddy for the person or family who can be patient with him as he acclimates to his new life. Ollie weighs about 30 pounds currently and we expect he may be 45-50 pounds once full grown. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
