Hi, I’m Ollie. I very recently came into the care of the Rockingham Harrisonburg SPCA and am already available for adoption. Yay for me! However, this also means that I am still adjusting to the sites and sounds of being in an animal shelter and being indoors.
You see, I lived outdoors at my previous family’s place. I got along with most dogs that I met and had an easy time making friends with grownup, although I didn’t meet a lot of new people. The family took good care of me and I liked hanging out with the kids and chasing the cats. Yes, I’m young and naughty so while I liked hanging out with the kids, I would chase and herd them. The kids weren’t terribly fond of my way of playing and were sometimes overwhelmed.
So I’m ready for my new home. I would do best in a home with older children, one that would know not to fall for my tricks and run so I can herd them. I could live with a dog fine but living with cats would be too much fun for me. And none for the cats.
Remember, I’m still adjusting to being at the RHSPCA so don’t be surprised if I’m a little slow to warm up. Spend a little time with me, bring some yummy treats, and I’ll warm up quickly. Hoping to go home with my adoptive family soon.
Oh, I mentioned I lived outdoors. So living indoors will be an adjustment. The nice staff here has told me about bathroom manners but it’s still a foreign concept. I’m open to crate training if I’m given some puzzles to keep me occupied and not left in there for too long. I think I can get the hang of going potty outdoors with some patient training.
