Arrival Story: Ollie needed a home last summer because his family changed their mind a week after buying him. We happily took him into our pack but soon he began repeatedly getting very ill. After several trips to the vet, etc... and several fecals coming back negative for parasites we decided to take him to a new vet. SURPRISE!! HE TESTED POSITIVE FOR GIARDIA!! He was treated and has been healthy for several months - YAY!! We've grown very attached to him so he will probably be a permanent member of our family - unless an amazing family wanted to spoil him rotten and somehow talked me into it!) He's wonderful...
Bio: Ollie is housetrained when he has access to a doggy door. He is microchipped and VERY well socialized. IGs can have issues with being shy or timid - NOT OLLIE - he LOVES every person or animal who comes in the door! He'll bring you his toy and try to put it in your hand - in hopes that you will throw it!! He tries to "TALK" he will say "mama" or whatever you ask him to say... (sometimes it sounds like it, sometimes not so much... but it's ALWAYS CUTE!! - see his video).
His adoption fee will be higher than most (and wont cover all of his expenses). It is set at $875.00. Ollie is an amazing boy and worth 10 times that!
