HERE’S OLIVER!!  This petite, 6 lb, 3 yr old, white purebred Maltese is a doll.  He was reluctantly given up by his family because of a crisis that forced them to move and he could not come.  Thru no fault of his own, Oliver has had three homes in four years 🙁  Their loss, someone’s gain!  As you can see, he isn’t really fond of getting his picture taken but that side eye is just for show.  Oliver bonds very quickly, after he gets over his initial shyness.  Not a big kisser but a huge cuddler.  He doesn’t bark often (not a yapper) but when he does, you know he wants something!  He quickly learned the doggie door at his foster home and they say he is perfection!  He is interested in other dogs and would be happiest with a pal to play with.  He is also extremely portable and can go everywhere with you.  He is also pp pad trained but he should be put on a schedule so that he always goes outside!  Please do not apply if you are in an area where there are coyotes and you have a doggie door 🙁  Kids over 10 yrs old are OK….he is a bit too active for a senior home.  This will be his last transition to his forever home, so we are being extra cautious where he goes…please understand.  We want the best fit for you…and for him.

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
