You may remember Ollie, whose Memphis owner is seeking a new home for her due to the owner’s terminal illness. Claire, a friend of the owner, sent me an update on Ollie recently:
My friend, Ellen, is nearing the end of her ability to care for her beloved pet. We still have not found a home for Ollie, but there are complications. First of all, Ollie underwent heartworm treatment and when Ellen took her in for her 6-month post-treatment check, she tested positive for heartworms. Secondly, in Ellen’s stressful situation, Ollie has become aggressive (I think “snappy” is probably accurate) with other dogs, so she would need to be an only dog, we’re afraid. She has had no problems with the humans that have been in and out of Ellen’s house caring for her. She is part Husky, part Schnauzer and was rescued from MAS.
At first Ellen was hoping to keep her in Memphis, but now is willing to help with transport if the right family came along.
If you are interested in meeting Ollie or would like more information, please leave a comment here.
