OLIVER – 14932
Safe - 12-11-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Bella's NY Bullies Please honor your pledges:
Hello, my name is Oliver. My animal id is #14932. I am a male white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 29-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- moving – no pets allowed.
Oliver is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. Oliver will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics and monitoring of weight gain. Oliver should go to an experienced dog home that will allow him to acclimate to his surroundings at his own pace.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: “Please sir, can I have some more”, asks Oliver (Twist). And so we are feeding our way-too-skinny Oliver several small meals daily to help him gain some much-needed weight. He’s shy and nervous, a tiny 4 year old who needs to feel some love and feel safe before giving himself over to a new person. Surrendered by his family, we’re told that he is uncomfortable around strangers, but when with people he knows, he’s playful and active. We’re all strangers, of course, so it took Oliver a few days to acclimate to all of the newness around him. But, like ‘the little engine that could’, Oliver is slowly getting more comfortable with staff and volunteers, and even settled into my lap for some hugs. Still nervous on leash on the street (NYC streets can be daunting), he’s happiest staying close to home base at this point. Oliver enjoyed meeting some staff that came to meet him, his tail wagging shyly. Enjoying group play with his buddies, he’s been polite, tolerant and bouncy, so may enjoy having a canine sibling in his new home. While we only have a glimpse into Oliver’s past, we want to look into his future, filled with love, playtime, nutritious food and more love. Our little peanut is hoping you’re the one; are you?
