Oliver has been with us almost a week now. He had his vet visit, weighed in at 69 lbs, got a clean bill of health, and loved all the pets and treats. As Oliver is becoming more comfortable with us and his foster sisters, we’re starting to see his personality emerge. And he’s beginning to understand the routine. We learned that he prefers to be near his people at night, so with a quick relocation of his crate, he’s sleeping comfortably all night long. He’s also very patient in the mornings and sits quietly until it’s time to come out and start his day. Oliver is a typical young lab and has a good amount of energy. A normal day starts with a short fifteen minute walk, breakfast, and then some time to relax. Oliver settles fairly easily, if his people are settled. He also seems to like to sit and watch TV. During the day, we’ll take a few more short walks as he continues to learn the art of walking on leash. His zigzagging has declined and he would tell you that he only pulls when he just has to get to the next sniff. Since foster mom works from home most days, Oliver has adapted well to chill time while foster mom is working. Sometimes he’ll just go nap in his open crate.He enjoys time outside in the fresh air and will lay on the porch with the resident dogs for as long as you’ll let him. Oliver has started to play a little with the resident dogs, and reacts very appropriately to any correction they give him. You’ll often find him napping near one of them.
Oliver knows a few commands. He will sit, shake and sometimes lay down. He’s well versed in NO. He will sit and stay while you’re putting his food down and he’ll wait for the ok to eat. We are working to transfer that knowledge to staying at any time. He’s not as eager to do that since he really wants to be with his people and cannot fathom you walking through a door without him.Oliver’s best trait is his sweetness. He just loves people and will melt to have you rub his belly whenever you’re willing. He has not shown an interest in furniture just yet, but he will lay on the floor right on, I mean, at your feet.

Oliver arrived from the farm this past weekend. His breeding days are over and he’s learning how to enjoy retired life. Oliver did well on his long car ride to his foster home and was excited to meet his two new foster sisters (Sadie-yellow; Bella-brown). Oliver already enjoys relaxing with his new sisters.He tolerated his first ever, much needed, bath. Under all that was a beautiful shiny, soft coat; that also smells much better now.Oliver is learning leash walking and is doing very well at not pulling and just enjoys all the new smells. He has also learned quickly to do his business outside and hasn’t had an accident in the house yet. Yay Oliver!He is such a sweetheart and loves to be near you, always eager for pets. Oliver has a lot of new things to experience in the coming days. Stay tuned as we learn more about Oliver as he settles into the good life.
