********************PLEASE READ BEFORE RESPONDING******************************* To help us make a great fit for you, and any of our dogs as well, please include information about yourself(Home, family, yard/fence, work hours, other pets...) and/or use our application at Those emails will get the quickest response, we do the best we can, but if we have to follow up with an email asking you about yourself and waiting for a response, well, we have already moved on to the next email that has provided the details. We are doing the best we can to find the right home for each dog or cat, just need your help too! :) This little guy came to billowing into our lives like a lion, but just like springtime, he soon became a little lamb. Who knows what he had been thru in his life, or perhaps life was great and then he ended up in the shelter/rescue situation and that was very traumatic for this little guy. Who knows, I guess we will never know, but the good news is that Oliver is doing great. He came to us with a pretty full and fluffy coat. At first we really could not touch him, he was not having none of that, lol. It took a little persuasion( and a heaping helping of patience and understanding). But, Oliver did come around. When we were finally able to handle this little guy we realized he was just skin and bones, and a body full of matted hair. Gradually we gained his trust and lo and behold, Oliver let us brush out his mats, and even seemed to enjoy the attention. Oliver is a little lovebug. He will most likely need a family that will understand he is not going to fall in love right away. He is still working on his confidence, but he has let us know he loves a good snuggle and a kiss!! Oliver can be a little fearful/bossy with some dogs, so a home with other social dogs is a help, as well as a family that is dog savvy(previous dog experience is a must.). Oliver is due for his grooming next week, but he can go to the right home and go to his new family's groomer as well. He is such a great little guy if you are looking for your next best pal, a snuggle buddy that also likes some active playful times. He is not really a couch potato kind of guy as far a a person looking for a quiet lap dog, but he doesn't mind a little TV and snuggle time. Oliver is a spry 7 years old, is fully vetted and recently had a dental as well. His adoption fee is $325, and he will go home with plenty of supplies to help him settle into his new home.
