About Oliver

Adoption Fee: $200
Shih Tzu
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Oliver is the silliest shih tzu you'll ever meet, with the saddest history. We guesstimate that Oliver is 6-7 years old, and he's got only 6-7 teeth to match! Because Oliver has very few teeth, his tongue is always out, making him especially adorable! Oliver weighs around 10 pounds, is neutered and current on vaccines, and is house trained and crate trained. :) Oliver was originally found in Alabama after a tornado tossed him from his home and left him abandoned in a field. An exhaustive search was done to try to find his family with no luck. When Oliver arrived here at TFF, he was a matted mess, covered head to toe in dirt, grease, and yeast infections of the skin. It was thought that Oliver was blind, but it turned out he just couldn't see through all the gunk and hair tangled on his face. We had to shave him down almost completely, but now he's feeling like a new man! He sees just fine, manages stairs well, and even uses our doggy door. He went on a two-mile hike in Frick Park with no trouble! Oliver is fine with other animals, but would probably prefer a home where any other dogs are respectful of his space -- he is in no way aggressive, but he isn't too excited by the prospect of playing with our youngins! Kids are fine as well! $200 to an approved applicant.
