Adoption Status:

January 29, 2024 – Olive had her left eye removed last week.  She is healing very well.  She has just been adopted by her foster mom.

January 9, 2024 – Olive has her right eye removed a week and a half ago as it almost just fell out of the socket.  She is now 100% blind with the loss of her right eye. She is gaining confidence every day with navigating the house and with her follow-up coming up this Friday, we will look forward to getting her back out for walks. The loss of the right eye was unplanned and she will still have the left removed as planned. We take some peace in that she won’t lose anymore sight but just the pain that the left eye is causing her. Despite these set backs, Olive is still very curious and is gaining more confidence every day. She loves nothing more than snuggling on the couch and sleeping in the big bed. Olive has taught us a lot about perseverance in her short time with us and we are grateful to have her.

November 14, 2023 – Little Olive has now been with us for 2.5 months and is really getting into the swing of things. She now only gets up one time through the night for business so has graduated to the big bed, much to her delight. I think she will soon be able to go all night without needing a potty break as her stretches are getting longer and longer with each passing day.
Olive is great with other dogs and loves to play, her awkward zoomies could almost be compared to a bucking bull as she loses control in her excitement. She is very playful with the resident German Shepherd and if the GSD will lay down for her, Olive will shower her face with sloppy kisses.
Olive is a perfect little girl on walks and doesn’t let her disabilities slow her down. She seems to follow the tension of the leash and the vibration of walking- so we need to be very careful that she is not underfoot. She loves attention from people that stop to give her love along the way while we’re out.  Olive is getting spayed in the next month.

October 18, 2023 – Olive is doing very well and has done great improvement in the potty training.  She enjoys doing zoomies and is a good traveler in the car.  She enjoys spending time at the cottage.

October 10, 2023 – Olive’s spaying surgery had to be postponed til the beginning of November due to conflicting schedule at the vet clinic.  Olive is a sweet girl who does lots of zoomies and gets along very well with the resident German Shepherd.  Still working on housetraining, slowly but surely.

September 25, 2023 – We have now had Olive for almost a full month and one thing that is clear, is she is an absolute sweetheart. Olive is almost blind and she seems to be deaf.  Olive has learned the layout of the house and as long as we leave furniture where it should be and chairs tucked in, she navigates the house, no problem.
Olive is learning to do her business outside.  We try to give her physical praise when she does business outside to encourage her to do her to continue to do business outside.
Olive likes to be where the people are and follows the vibration of footsteps, so is never too far away! We are out walking a lot and she is a rockstar on a leash. Of course with smell being her best sense, walks can sometimes take longer than expected as we stop to smell the roses along the way.  Olive sleeps through the night and flips between her crate and her bed but is a great little sleeper. Routine is key with little Olive and we try to keep her daily activities close to the same every day.  Olive is getting spayed on October 11, 2023.

August 31, 2023 – Olive came to us yesterday.  She is 6 months old.  She is likely deaf and blind and coming from a puppy mill.  Olive is going to the vet tomorrow for a compete check up.  She is a very sweet and cuddly girl.
