TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Ollie is a happy-go-lucky dog with a cheeky face that’s more like a Labrador than a greyhound… and a very shiny coat and the cutest ski-jump nose!
Our volunteers love to get him out of this kennels as he just stands there very patiently while they put on his lead.
Ollie really comes into his own in the play paddock. He loves for you to through the ball and actually brings it straight back to you for more.
Our volunteers have been working with Ollie on his excitability around other breeds of dogs. He has come along leaps and bounds and has been described as a real star. He is a bright lad and has has responded well to his training. He was “golden” when meeting 2 off-lead Labradors all having a good sniff and then looking for his cheesy reward.
One of our volunteers, Libbie, took Ollie home for the day recently and said,
“Ollie was so well behaved. At the kennels he’s not one for cuddles or fuss but in a home he loves it, especially belly rubs. I found a spot on his head that makes his back left leg go😍😂 He really came out of his shell.
On the walk he walks on loose lead next to you. We saw many dogs. All Ollie does is take a glance but continues to walk lovely by your side. We encountered the three labs again; at first he moved forward and huffed at them but then let two of them calmly sniff him as he wasn’t bothered for a sniff. He stops to watch dogs play and run but he will carry on walking with encouragement with no force on the lead.
At home he sniffed everything but if you settle down he will just sleep and stay there until you move. He enjoyed playing with a tennis ball in the garden but I think he preferred the indoors as it was warmer. Did I mention he’s got a really perky nose. He really showed that he would be a perfect house dog😊🐶
If you would like a black beauty to play and share your cuddles with, then Ollie could be your new best friend.
