  • HISTORY:  Olive was brought in as a stray with her mom and sister. She was adopted within a month, but was returned two years later due to resource guarding issues. When Olive arrived we withheld all treats and toys and set new feeding rules for her. After working very hard to improve her manners, Olive now eats from a bowl nicely and does not react when the bowl is taken away.Best suited in a home with adults only and no cats please.
Smart and Sassy!!  Who doesn’t love and respect a girl who knows what she wants and is not afraid to ask for it?   Olive is all of this and so much more!!   This solid framed, sleek jacketed lady is pure joy to watch as she runs like the wind in one of our fenced in areas!  Paying no attention to the toys scattered about hoping to be activated,  Olive is much more interested in being near her person and in particular getting much needed and yes, deserved belly rubs!  This super sweet, sensitive lady will be at her best in a home with structure and steady routine headed up by humans with prior dog experience.   She enjoys the company of other dogs and in fact, she will tell you her best friend here at the Sanctuary is another pointer, Polly who will oftentimes join her for a brisk walk through some of our wooded trails.  Exploring the sights, sounds and smells of the woods is a favorite past time of Olive along with the reward of yummy snacks at the end of her walk.  Olive is boldly smart and graced with a delightful personality.   She is happiest when she is confident that her humans have everything under control and she need not worry or fret!  Exercise should play a regular role in her daily routine.   Structure, routine and a healthy heap of human love will bring out the very best of Olive.   She’s hoping that soon you will come on by and ask for the ultimate relish, Olive!
