About Oliver

Adoption Fee: $50
Pit Bull / Lab
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

I am heartbroken. I have loved and worked with Oliver for two years. I got him from a shelter Dec 2019. He was approx 9 mo- 1 year old at the time. He was afraid of everything once we got home. I have had trainers, tried all the tools, so much obedience... he has a Veterinary Behaviorist, and three anxiety medications. He still is so fearful. He has been reactive on leash, and yesterday jumped out of my vehicle to go after a neighbors dog. She did require Veterinary care, but is okay. I know everyone wants to be the perfect home for their pets, but I am not for him. The constant diligence I have to have is causing my mental health to deteriorate. I wonder if someone who has experience with dogs like this could help him. I will be reaching out to pit rescues to see if anyone can help, but in the meantime I thought I'd put it on here. I will not let him go to just any person. I have knowledge about what he needs and I hope I can help him find it: no children in home, no other pets, a yard (he has great recall but he's not allowed off leash anymore here), an experienced and confident owner who is willing to give him his meds and continue management strategies. I cannot keep this pace up. As I said, my mental health is suffering, which in turn makes Oliver more anxious. He is crate trained. House broken (never once had an accident). Does a ton of tricks: sit, down, stay, wait, spin, take a bow, back up, files his own nails, lets me brush his teeth, find it... really smart guy. Muzzle trained.
