ADOPTED! OLLIE is sweet as can be for the little attention she received for most of her life. The vet estimates her to be about 10  years old.  Ollie is very people focused, wants to please, is very responsive and is very trainable. Ollie gets along very well with other friendly, playful dogs.  If adopted into a home with a dominant dog, they may have a tussle over who will be top dog. Ollie was raised around children, and was living in a house surrounded by cats.

Ollie was rescued when her owner, who was a hoarder, died.  We were told that for several years, the neighborhood watched the neglect of this dog and attempted to persuade Ollie's owner to give her up.  She was kept in a cage all the time, with occasional walks.  

Ollie's foster person decided to foster her when he heard that she was going to be collected by Animal Control.  We are seeking a permanent, loving home for Ollie, where she can begin to live and rediscover the world.

Ollie has been spayed and up to date on all her vaccinations. She is currently being treated for a tick borne disease (NOT Lyme's), but otherwise the vet said she is in great shape and very healthy.
