Ollie came into SNAFU Rescue via private party to ensure he found the best home possible as his forever home!
Ollie has been a wonderful foster puppy, his foster family reports! Ollie is an outgoing boy and loves being with his people! He is loving having a play mate with the other dog in his foster home and will play for hours. Being a young puppy Ollie loves being busy whether its chewing on toys, playing or working on his manners. It is important to remember is still a puppy so still has a lot of puppy ornery-ness that he's ready to share! He does well with gentle children, under supervision (he is still a little boy, so he is always supervised when he is around kids, to make sure both he and they are kept safe).
Being a puppy Ollie is currently still working on potty training but doing amazingly well! A regular, consistent schedule will help with his continued potty training in his new home. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with him. He has also done great with crate training and sleeps quietly in his kennel during the night or when his foster family happens to leave the home. For his safety, we recommend that he keep a similar crating schedule when his humans are away from the home and/or he is left unsupervised so he is safe and secure while no one is home. He does not know danger and must be protected when his humans are not able to supervise him.
Ollie has visited the vet and is in good health. He has been neutered, is microchipped, is UTD on all of his vaccinations/wormings and has been cleared by our vet for adoption!
Ollie would do well in almost any type of home but since he is still working on potty training a house will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling). We also think he'd love to go work with his new family if they wanted to take him with them to the office. If not, he's completely happy sleeping the day away in his kennel with a nylabone or two to keep him busy as long as his people can arrange a mid-day potty break or two for him throughout the day!
Ollie is a very sweet boy and if you are looking for a puppy that wants all your attention then Ollie is it. However, please be prepared for the needs and care requirements of an active, ornery, puppy if you apply for him!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Ollie please fill out an adoption application for him today!
NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically accept for new applications for a period of 7 days or until 20 applications have been received for any newly available dog. After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc. :-) Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another. We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete. That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-)
IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter. In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)
ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply! While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.
If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
