This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Oliver, a playful mutt who loves to please everyone. Here is what his owner, Mark, had to say about him:
Oliver is a short-haired Collie/Retriever mix who came to us via the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation of Arlington when he was an 8-week-old pup. He is now a 3.5-years-old, healthy as can be, little “dudeman.” His mother was a rescue and Oliver was born in the shelter, so he has been cared for with love and affection his entire life. We were looking to adopt a pooch for several months before finally meeting Oliver at a PetSmart adoption event. It was love at first lick!
Oliver’s temperament and playful attitude towards humans and dogs alike is a true blessing. He is very submissive and is eager to please. When it’s time to play, he wants to play. When it’s time to watch a movie and relax, he wants to snuggle up close and take it easy. We could not have asked for a more perfect dog for us.
Some of Oliver’s favorite activities include playing with tennis balls and racquetballs, puppy play dates and going anywhere so long as he is with mom and dad. Oliver has been a wonderful addition to our family and there is never a dull moment with such a playful, loving mutty-mutt in the house. We’ve heard comparisons to the Target dog and Wishbone (if you don’t know, it was a TV show from the 90’s), but regardless of whom he might resemble, you have to admit, he is pretty darn cute!
