Oliver's previous owner is in hospice and we made him an honorary dachshund so we could help her out. Six months ago she surrendered three dachshunds to us so we already had an emotional attachment to their family. She told us that Oliver is a toy or mini Australian Shepherd that she rescued from a breeder who was going to have him put to sleep as a puppy because of his foot deformity. Oliver was born without his left front paw. We call him a "tri-pawed". Even though he's tri-pawed this little guy is no couch potato, he will follow you everywhere. He has a beautiful thick coat and bob tail. Oliver was a staff favorite at the vet. He loves people and the attention they give him. He is crate-trained and is used to a fenced yard. He knows to go potty outside. He is Mr. Personality. Their foster mom says he is a great dog. He definitely needs a sweet playful dog his size and age in his new home. He loves toys, is not a big barker and loves to sleep in the big bed!. ****Applicants must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Oliver.****
