Ollie is a two-and-a-half-year-old mix breed (American Eskimo Dog, Black and Tan Coonhound, Collie, Siberian Husky, Terrier group). Ollie had a rough start as a puppy; he was left at a landfill in Louisiana with one of his brothers at 6 weeks old. Ollie was then taken to a shelter and next to a rescue organization (PA Caring for K-9’s). Ollie was fostered for longer than usual due to his timid nature. When Ollie was adopted, it took him a while to warm up, but soon began to snuggle right up to us!
With the help of his big sister Penny, (star of our last pet spotlight), Ollie has come a long way in the past two years and is now much quicker to trust new people. Even the adoption organization and foster mom were surprised at how much he came out of his shell after spending time in our loving home. He just needed a caring home that was patient and understanding of his personality to help nurture him to feel more confident. He loves to play with his furry friends and snuggle up on the couch. Ollie is great at catching treats or ice in mid-air, even from a distance. Ollie has been such a great addition to our household and our time spent earning his trust has been so rewarding.
