Who wouldn’t want to keep company with Oliver, a happy-go-lucky Pittie Mix?

Ollie, as the folks at the SPCA of Hancock County call him, came from The Ark animal shelter in Cherryfield, and everyone is surprised that it’s taken him this long to find a family!

He’s two years old with the sleekest black coat and white markings, and he’s as clever as he is smartly “dressed” in his natural tuxedo markings.

Ollie is extremely food-motivated so even if he seems to be getting carried away in puppy-ish antics, it is easy to redirect his attention - as the animal care manager there has even been working on clicker training him! Ollie does need a little bit more training, particularly when it comes to jumping on people excitedly, but he loves everyone and everything he’s met so far.

A cat would need to be dog-savvy and used to puppies to coexist with Ollie, but he hasn’t shown any desire to chase cats - he simply doesn’t realize how big he is!

Ollie might be best for households with older children, just because he might knock into toddlers on accident. He’s simply a puppy in a 2-year-old dog’s body, and he can’t wait for a family to love forever!

Make an appointment to stop by and meet Ollie who could very easily become an important and much-cherished member of your family!
