Age: 8 y/o | Size: 4.5 lb  | Male Maltese

Oliver is an adorable 8 year old Maltese who weighs 4.5 pound. He grew up with other dogs and is very comfortable around them. He was not socialized much growing up, so he is skittish around people at first and needs time to build trust. Oliver will thrive in the right home given time and patience, His confidence is slowly growing in his foster home and he will follow his foster mom around, but he is still nervous about being picked up. He needs to learn that people are kind and just want to love him.

Oliver was recently neutered and had a dental, where he lost all his teeth. He is recovering now and will be ready to find his forever home soon. He is a good eater and does well with soft food. He is working on his housebreaking, which should improve now that he is neutered.

Oliver has never been on a leash, so he will need a securely fenced in area to go out to do his business. He would like another dog in the home who he can learn from and gain confidence from watching their lead.

If you think you can provide Oliver with love, patience, and consistency he will need to blossom, please visit our website to complete an online application. His adoption donation is $400. He is completely vetted and microchipped. Oliver is a project, but will be worth the extra time and effort.
