Ollie was rescued from Memphis Animal Shelter in October of 2010. Her human, who loves Ollie with all her heart, has recently been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and has been told by the doctors that she has approximately 3-6 months left to live. She has found homes for her cats and her other dogs, but not yet for Ollie. She is desperately hoping for the right home.
Ollie is about 3 years old. She tested positive for heart worms last winter and has undergone the treatment. Her last follow-up to make sure she is negative is due in 2 weeks. Her shots are up to date. She is a Husky/Schnauzer mix with one blue eye and one brown eye. Ollie is incredibly loyal-she has been by her human’s side through chemo and all the illness that means. She sits right by her human all night long, because she knows that her beloved human is sick.
Her dream is to find a home for Ollie before she dies, but to have Ollie stay with her until the end. She would like someone to come and meet Ollie a couple of times, and to be prepared to pick her up when her human is gone. Ollie loves cats and other dogs, has lived with both, and does well. She is the alpha dog and needs a good, loving, strong human to help her understand the rules. She knows “sit”, “lay down” and “stay.” She likes children, but can be very playful so no small children would be recommended.
I will happily facilitate the adoption if anyone in the Memphis area thinks Ollie would be the perfect dog for them. Ollie’s mom is my dear friend and I would love to be able to help her.
