Adopt Me: Ollie, a 2 year old Male Yellow Labrador, who is looking for his forever home.
Here is a bio from his foster home:
“Ollie is a sweet, energetic and fun-loving two-year old yellow lab. He is extremely friendly with humans and other animals. He loves to play with toys, fetch, explore and seek out new adventures. He likes to be active, but also understands when it is time to relax and calm down.
Ollie is gentle and very loveable, seeking out attention from people. He is friendly and curious about everything, including the sights and sound of the television. He loves petting and if invited will snuggle on the sofa or bed. He can be a little timid at first with new adults, but quickly loses that. He absolutely loves everyone, gets super excited, but not out of control. He seems to always have a smile on his face.
Ollie knows many basic commands such as, “sit”, “down”, “come”, “stay” and “wait”. He is working on the others and is quick to learn. He is crate trained, and sleeps through the night. Sometimes, he seeks out the solace of his crate when he is tired. Because of his excellent behavior, has been given supervised “free reign” in the house. He is potty trained and learned to use the doggy door in a couple of days. He loves independence but does need to be reminded occasionally to go out. He is learning to walk properly on the leash and needs to be reminded to focus.He is excellent at fetch, bringing whatever object back quickly,and either dropping it at your feet or letting you take it from him.
Ollie has done well with our five-year old black lab, benefitting from having a more mature dog to show him what is expected. They play like brothers and Ollie is quick to understand when he gets over excited. We have not seen any indication of prey instinct, only curiosity with other smaller animals and sounds.
Ollie is a very happy and well-behaved boy. He would be a great family dog. He is young and could benefit from continued training. He has energy and will definitely need an outlet for that. He will do well in any home, including those with children and other dogs. This sweet and loveable boy is ready for his forever home. “
