Brooklyn Dog Seeks New Home

I just received this message from Pam Brown, the head of the South Slope Dog Association. Her friend, Heather, needs to re-home her dog. Here’s a description of Oliver. If interested, please contact the number listed.

Dear Friends,

Please spread the word so that Oliver may find a new home quickly.

I write this letter with a heavy heart, as I am in search of a new owner for my dog Oliver.  As many of you know, I am moving to Germany on March 18th to join my boyfriend.  We had every intention of Oliver being there with us. He even had a plane ticket and crate for the trip. Unfortunately though, a DNA test confirmed he is an American
Staffordshire Terrier and Bull Terrier mix, neither of which are allowed to be brought into the country. Thus, Oliver is in need of a forever home and perhaps you know the perfect friend or family member
who could provide that for him.

Oliver is a healthy 7-year-old young man.  While he weighs 89 lbs, he often thinks he is a lap dog.  He is gentle, intelligent, extremely goofy and has the best personality. He loves to be with people (including children) and is socially motivated.

He loves searching for treats, performing tricks, making people laugh and playing tug. He is fearful around other dogs and can become aggressive; however, he does not lunge, so he is a pleasure to walk with and he is great on the leash.

Do you know anyone who might want to give Oliver a new forever home?

Overall he is an amazing dog. I adopted Oliver when he was 6 months old and was told, “all this dog wants to do is please.”  It is so true, and in return he simply wants to be loved and be near you, whether you are working, walking, making dinner or napping.  He just wants to be part of the pack.

If you or any close friends/family members of yours would be interested in adopting Oliver please let me know.

Thank you,

Heather Metcalfe
