Oliver

I was born and raised right here in Ontario and I’m nothing but a country boy!!!. My foster mom says I’m the best of the best ( I have to agree with her I am pretty special) I love to run and play and mom is always sayin ” Oliver do you ever stop”!!!, I have a lot of energy and I’m a big boy at 95lbs but trust me its all love.
I’m crate trained ( but would rather sleep with you) love car rides , getting so much better on a leash, LOVE chasing squirrels , you must have a high fence cause if I see a squirrel ITS MINE!!!. My original dad loved me so much and I miss him but he got a new job and had to start travelling so much that he thought he would let my friend Geri here find me the most loving home, she put me with my foster mom ( who I know loves me ) she keeps telling me Oliver your forever family will come but until then your all mine !!! I know she will cry when I have to go but I really need a family that I can call mine!!!
So if you like taking walks , playing ball, hiking or just cuddle on the couch I’m your guy!!!…I would prefer older kids if you have them because Im a big boy and wouldn’t want to hurt them by knocking them down. Well that’s it for now , thanks for taking the time listening to me and please consider me when looking for your new furry family addition.

Back story: Oliver is looking for a new home as his current owner travels too much and would like him to find a family that can give him more exercise than he is currently getting. While he has previously lived with dogs, he has lately started showing dog reactivity while on leash so we would like to see him in a dog free home for now. He is a big strong dog with high energy so he needs an active owner who is willing to ensure he gets the exercise he needs. He’s very affectionate and loves to give kisses. Young children are not recommended as he has nipped at them previously when they invade his space. Due to his prey drive we also do not recommend him being placed with cats.
Aside from those minor flaws, Oliver is a big happy goofball who is looking for a hiking buddy to call his own.
