"Ollie" is a handsome, well-mannered and smart gentleman. He loves to go for walks, play fetch and chase squirrels in the backyard. Ollie rides well in the car and is happy to go into his crate at night. He is also very calm when you give him a bath and loves to be brushed. He is very gentle around kids and loves it when they roll a ball to him – he will even return the ball by nudging it with his nose! More than anything, he loves to be with people and will sit quietly at your feet while you read or watch television.
Ollie arrived in DRoH's care with an internal and external infection. Upon further discovery, Ollie was diagnosed with Cushings, a treatable and manageable condition. He will forever live by taking medication, and with proper care Ollie will continue to run, play and enjoy a healthy and full life.
