Ollie is an adorable 10 month-old, 24 pound, Formosan Mountain Dog mix. He journeyed from Taiwan all the way to Rocket Dog in hopes that you would adopt him into your family. As you can imagine that was a big trip for him and this new life has been a little stressful. Ollie seems to be good with other dogs but should only go into a home with other dogs if the other dog is very confident. Ollie can be timid at first (as most Formasan Mountain Dogs are) but once he trusts you he has not problem giving cuddles and kisses. He prefers women over men and takes a little longer to warm up to men. He doesn’t mind kids and can go into a home that has them!
As a bonus, Ollie is house-trained and good on leash! Even though he’s good on leash the busy city streets tend to make him feel a little nervous and will need someone who will take this slowly with him.
Ollie would do best in a home that has experience with shy pups. He will require a patient home with family who are not gone for long hours or who are willing to take him to daycare during the day. Ollie is very smart and very treat- motivated and would benefit from a family who will continue to work on his basic manners and who will give him adequate opportunities for mental stimulation and exercise and who will take a gentle approach to training. As a fearful dog, a gentle approach will be essential to his success.
Ollie is waiting to meet you! Please apply and a volunteer will contact you. (BJ)
