Oliver is a one year old fun boy who is as active as the day is long. Our best guess on his breed mix is Husky/Border Collie and without a doubt he is as smart as he is energetic. He came to us as an owner surrender when his family could not meet his energy needs. Watch his video and you'll get an idea of what an ideal day is like for this happy boy... play, run, wrestle, nap and repeat, and then repeat again. 

Oliver is quite a lovely boy and gets along with pretty much everyone, whether two legged or four. A pretty agreeable guy, he loves other dogs, loves people, loves being outside, loves napping on the couch, loves snuggling with his people and loves harassing the resident cats. He never means them any harm but firmly believes they want to be herded, licked and teased. If his adoptive family were to have a cat, it would have to be a dog savvy cat who will either put him in his place or enjoy his antics.

As far as his training goes, his surrendering family did a fantastic job. He is house trained, crate trained, knows all his basic obedience, has a fantastic recall, is friendly with everyone he meets and is pretty great in the house. He does have the bad habit of counter surfing and greatly enjoys scoping out the kitchen counters for any and all food. You've been warned. 

Now onto the topic of his health. We noticed when he arrived that his gait seemed off. The xrays we had done showed his left hip socket and ball did not form properly before he was born. We waited many months for a consult with an orthopaedic surgeon to see if surgery was recommended. He gave Oliver the all clear, stating that he is not in any pain, not lame and runs, leaps, walks and plays like any other dog. The surgeon said it is very important for his new family to keep him lean and active as the muscles are what's keeping his hip in place and enabling him to move so well. Since Oliver's never known any different he sure doesn't let it slow him down. Don't believe us? Watch his video again! 

So, if you're looking for a smart, energetic, handsome boy to get out and do things with, Oliver could be the perfect match. He is ready for any and all adventure!

Oliver up to date with his vaccines, neutered, microchipped and on parasite prevention. He  comes with a certificate for one month of free pet insurance.
