Ollie is a super rad 1-year-old boy who came to us from a rural shelter. As an unclaimed stray, this boy was running out of time, so IDR+ stepped in and took him into our rescue. This handsome guy has features of both Border Collie and Australian Shepherd, so we’re making an educated guess that he’s a mix of the two breeds. He’s smart and ready to learn, and already knew ‘sit’ and ‘paw’ on arrival. He was a perfect gentleman for his transport and also angelic for his bath and nail trim. However, he is a little mouthy when he wants to play, so could use obedience to curb behaviors that might be a tad naughty. Ollie hasn’t had an accident in his foster home and is eager to potty outside. Since he’s a young energetic fellow, we are requiring a securely fenced yard to meet his exercise needs. He doesn’t seem to be bothered by the dogs and cats in his foster home, and even seems to be pretty chill around the human child. He would be fine with children 7 and up, especially if they want to play with him! He loves to play ball, run, and explore all the smells in the yard, but is also just smitten with cuddles… and trying to crawl into your lap to make out. If you’re looking for a jogging partner and cuddle buddy, Ollie is for you!
