Update on Oliver

Update on Oliver

Adopted January 2017

Dog’s former name Cesar

What are the best things about your dog?
Oliver is a big lazy cuddle monster, but he can also be super playful with his favorite toys. He makes the cutest grunting noises when he is hugged. He also will nibble my fingers when he wants to be pet.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves going for walks by the river and he thinks car rides are the bomb. As for training, he doesn’t mind it, but it can be a lot of work sometimes. During Obedience 1, he would last about 30 minutes, then it was hard to get him to do much.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Oliver has completed Obedience 1. He also has been on a couple of camping adventures, and he loves to visit his doggy friends.

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Their initial reaction is a bit apprehensive because he is big, black, and bulky. Some people have made a point of walking around him when we are in public. However, once people give him a chance, they find out that he is the biggest love bug.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Bubba, Baby Bear, Olly and Olly Bear.

1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy

2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on

3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides

4. Water: No way or splash all day? No way

Update on Pippa

Update on Pippa

Adopted January 20, 2017

Dog’s former name Pippa

What are the best things about your dog?
She is such a sweet girl and she is very loyal to her family. She likes to play with other dogs and has been great with all the foster dogs and cats that have come through our house in the past few months.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Pippa LOVES her chuck it ball. It is her absolute favorite toy but she doesn’t want to give it to you to throw. She will eventually drop it and then anxiously stares at it until you throw it for her.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Pippa was found with a congenital abnormality called carpal flexural deformity. Her front legs were bent and she walked on her elbows with her chin touching the ground. After going through the Heal-a-Bull program with a lot of water treadmill therapy, she now walks normally. On top of that, she is as fast as a bullet and easily outruns every other dog she has ever played with! She was also featured in the award winning book “Rescued” by Tangerine House of Design!

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
People love Pippa and say she is a beautiful dog. She gets to go to work every day with my husband, and he says that his coworkers go out of their way to stop by his desk and say hi to her.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Pip, Pippers

FAST FIVE with Pippa

1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy

2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on

3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides

4. Water: No way or splash all day? No way

5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Definitely a day in the sun

Update on Crash

Update on Crash

Adopted January 2, 2017

Dog’s former name Crash: it fits him so well

What are the best things about your dog?
His quirks, affection and playfulness.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves to run, “crash” into things and play “zoomies”. He loves other dogs, toys and treats.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Crash was very nervous at his first puppy training class. The teacher had to put him and me behind a covered barrier in the corner to help him calm down. Crash worked hard with me every morning to train. At the end of the class, the teacher could not believe Crash’s improvement. She said he was a different dog. I believe he was the same special dog, but with more confidence :).

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Crash may not be a pit bull after all. He is pretty tiny. Crash plays well with other pits and we make sure to spend time with them.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Crashy, Kermit, Pupsie, Grandpa. These are all names my 13-year-old son has given him. My son is smitten with Crash.

2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Unstuff after he was no longer a pup

3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Rides

4. Water: No way or splash all day? No way

5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? A day in the sun; sun bather
