Meet Oliver, a sweet boy who was found as stray by a local Animal Control. He came to CRGI needing some serious dental attention, which included the extraction of eight teeth and the removal of a cyst on his upper jaw/gums. We are excited to report that the cyst was benign, so Oliver is now on a mission to find his forever family.

At his foster home, Oliver has proven to be a very good house guest. He does not have any issues with being in a crate when left alone, and he is also content to sleep there at night. He has picked up potty training pretty quickly, and his foster mom reports that he hasn't had any accidents. Oliver seems to be a pretty quiet guy. His foster mom said that he didn't actually bark until he was there for about a week and a half. He mostly just barks at bicycles passing by or will bark for a short time after his foster family leaves the house.

A home with a fence would be desirable in order to help provide some safety for Oliver as he learns basic commands and starts to respond to his name. Some sounds seem to frighten him, like construction noise, thunder or trains off in the distance. He has been known to run to the fence at his foster home and bark at bikes going by, so a fence would help to acclimate him to his forever home surroundings. 

In general, Oliver is a sweet guy. When he wants attention, he will rub his face on you or will set it in your lap for you to pet. When encountering new people, he is bit shy at first but warms up. While at his foster home, Oliver has been getting along well with the resident collies and cats. He is interested in the resident cats and is respectful toward them. When it comes to the basics, Oliver has shown no issues. He is able to get in and out of a car and is quiet for the duration of the ride. He walks nicely on a martingale lead.  He received a positive report from the groomer, who said that he was good, but a little mouthy at the end.

Since coming to our rescue, Oliver has overcome some challenges and shown that he is strong and capable of being a wonderful companion. He is ready to find is forever home, could it be with you?
