Adoptable Dog of the Week-Ollie

If you want a four-legged bestie you can help grow into their potential, this charming little guy is perfect! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Ollie, a 5 years old Blue Heeler ( Australian Cattle Dog) mix from Lincoln, Nebraska. He’s neutered, up to date on his shots, and house trained. Ollie is a sweet dog but needs to be the only pet in an adult-only household.

Ollie’s Tale

Cute as a button and with a kind heart, Ollie is a diamond in the rough: with an experienced adopter by his side, he’d have no issue reaching his potential. He is an active, smart dog that would love to be someone’s running companion or live with an owner that often goes hiking and is looking for a canine partner on their adventures. Of course, after all that activity, some downtime on the couch does sound good- so be prepared to dole out lots of cuddles and snuggles as well. This smart cookie is also already house trained so you won’t have to worry about potty training and the like- he’s ready to be a part of your family.

Ollie’s a dog with a big heart but he has some issues he needs to work on: he’s reactive to other dogs, can be a little food-aggressive, and needs slow introductions to new people. That’s why it’s best if he goes to a family where he would be the only pet in the home and with adult family members only to avoid any unfortunate situations. Ideally, Ollie would go to an experienced adopter that would help him work through his problems and blossom into the great pupper he could be.

In case that an affectionate, active underdog sounds like the perfect pet for you, contact Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue for more information about Ollie and how you could adopt this sweet guy.
