Available Dogs - Olsen

Olsen 20

I am Olsen and I am told I am one sweet boy who likes to snuggle with my foster family. I like to be outdoors and enjoy running and letting out my energy and then I just want to lie down and relax.  I love my foster mom and I like to follow her wherever she goes, and she finds it endearing. 

I am little unsure of new people and need a little help in overcoming this fear, but my family says I am progressing well and becoming more confident. I am curious about new sounds and can get a little scared when it gets loud so a calm home would be best.

I like to play so a nice fenced in backyard or daily walks would help burn my energy. Are you ready for a new playmate?
