Ollie is a 3 yr old terrier mix. He arrived in the program on 11/23/18. If you are interested in adopting Ollie when he completes the program, please contact his rescue, Worthy Dog Rescue, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Week 1. Ollie is high energy, fun loving dog that loves to play outdoors. He is very friendly and loves to interact with people. He is extremely vocal and can very protective of his handler at times, but overall he is a very affectionate and sweet dog. He like to play with the other dogs, but it takes a little time for him to get used to them. Once he feels comfortable with the other dog, he becomes extremely playful. Ollie is a little skiddish and can be a little guarded upon first meeting him, but he does warm up fairly quickly and becomes very attached. He loves to play with squeeky toys (tennis balls preferred) and is extremely treat motivated. Ollie can be a little hard-headed (as is the case with most terriers). He does need to be with someone who can be firm as needed, as he does try to become the "boss". Ollie is a real sweetheard overall. He loves to be rubbed and has all the characteristics to make someone a very happy person. With regards to his behavior, he is pretty good, although he will bark at times towards strangers. If they introduce themselves, especially with a treat, he usually warm up pretty quickly. He does exhibit some barrier aggression (mostly when in his crate) but once outside of confinement he settles down very quickly. Ollie has been through training, so he has easily picked up the basic commands in just the week he's been in the program. He needs lots of work on his recall, as he becomes very distracted when outside. Overall, his manners are good.
