A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Like people, some dogs have that ‘it’ quality that attracts others to them, and Oliver is that dog! So handsome in his lush latte color coat, he has the best ear to ear smile, is affectionate, lovely and so responsive on leash, got cute little bouncy zoomies from time to time, sits when asked, poses for the camera like a pro, ignored other dogs on our walk, and has amazing comments from his former family who needed to give him up. We’re told that he lived respectfully with a 6 year old child and is good with children of all ages, is relaxed and playful with dogs of all sizes including small breeds (he was terrific in playgroups with both male and females of his size), doesn’t guard his stuff, sleeps in his crate, is well behaved when left home alone, knows ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘come’ and ‘talk’. Oliver is so well behaved, spending time with him is like time spent with an old friend, easy and comfortable. He’s perfection on four legs and if you’re still reading this and not rushing over to meet him you’ll miss out. He’s already a favorite of volunteers who have voted him sweetest dog ever. Now it’s your turn to vote.
