Default Oliver (Rescue) is here

So Oliver is finally where at my office, and I know a lot more about his story.

He was owned by an elderly couple and the husband died recently. The wife simply didn't feel that she could keep up with his health issues without her husband and surrendered him to the shelter 2 weeks ago. Apparently it was very hard for her which I completely understand.

She brought everything with her -- all of his health records, etc.

Apparently he may have had kennel cough right after arriving at the shelter, so was given antibiotics, but it also sounds like he might have a collapsing trechia or he may have been debarked. He's not coughing, but is making some funny little noises.

His skin isn't nearly as bad as I though it would be. He's pink and you can see some dermatisis.

He is very loving and doesn't seem shy. He's already given lots of kisses to my co-worker that picked him up for me and to me.

It's obvious that he hasn't had a bath in a couple of week (smells and also a little dirty) but it's also obvious that he's been well cared for -- both by his owners and at the shelter. And his teeth look good -- just a slight tartar built-up but it appears that he's had regular dentals and care. He's in a puppy cut that looks good. Just really needs to be bathed.

I will be anxious to hear what my Vet has to say in the morning. I will be spending tonight going through his health records. And, of course, he will get a bath as soon as we get home. I will use the Pure Paws Aloe and Oatmeal Shampoo and Conditioner as it's probably the best for his sesitive skin.

He is little -- probably around 5 lbs.-- and he looks like he's a pure bred Malt but from a BYB. I think he's a little on the thin side and would like to put about 1/2 lb on him.

Seems like a sweetheart.

Unfortunately I grabed the 1st harness/leash that I saw when running out the door this morning and it is a Susan Lanci that's pink with pink rosebuds (belongs to Lacie) and that's on him now. Hopefully he doesn't know that he's looking "fou fou".

hmmmmmm, it'll be interesting to see how you are at fostering.....opposed to "keeping" the fosters.....

I'm glad you rescued the little guy. Boys really are so loving.

Yay! I'm glad he's "home"

I'm sure the bath will help.

After he gets vetted you might try Emu Oil on his skin...

Hope he has a good night

Oh my, what a little doll! I am sure the poor little guy is grieving for his family, so confused by what has happened to him. It sounds as if you have wonderful staff at the shelter who have done the best they can for him but this is so much better for him to be in a home again where he can feel safe and comforted. Thank you for taking this little lost soul in to your home and your heart.
