This handsome pooch will be your loyal companion and partner in crime for your life’s adventures! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Oliver, a 3 years old Cattle Dog and Labrador Retriever mix from Indianapolis, Indiana. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, microchipped, and current on flea and heartworm prevention. Oliver is house trained and crate trained and does well with everybody – including other dogs, cats, and children.

Oliver’s Tale

If you’ve always wanted a dog that wants nothing more than to spend time with you, you’ll love Oliver. He’s an active dog full of energy that will enjoy walks, hikes, and daily playtime, but he also appreciates curling up on the sofa with you when it’s time for a nap and snuggles. Get you a pooch that can do both, they say – and Oliver definitely fits the bill. He is very well-behaved on the leash, knows his manners inside the home (he is fully potty trained), and he’s also crate trained to boot.

He can be a bit shy at first, but he quickly warms up to people that are kind and loving – he can get a bit overwhelmed when there’s company around and will prefer to retreat to his comfy treat with a chew toy until guests leave. Oliver is very loyal to his owners and takes his job of protecting them seriously and generally displays other cattle dog/heeler characteristics, so he would do best in a home with an experienced adopter who’s owned similar breeds before.

A sweet, loving guy with a great personality, Oliver gets along with everyone he meets. He would love to share his home with another dog and doesn’t even mind a dog-savvy feline roommate. Oliver is great with respectful kids, as well, so he’d fit right in a big family!

If Oliver sounds like a dream to you, contact Far Fetched Dog Rescue to learn more about him and the adoption process.
