Dog of the Day: Olive the ADOPTABLE Labrador Retriever Husky Mix

I met Olive at the same park I was at for the First Caturday celebration. She ran right up to me and gave me smooches, but I thought she was totally nervous because she had her tail tucked way down between her legs. Nope! Turns out she only has a half a tail! (Apparently was born that way.)

She is up for adoption at Family Dog Rescue, but hasn’t been rescued so far because she is really ill-suited to life in the shelter: when she’s there, she’s scared and shy and mostly huddles in a corner. Take her out, and, well, she becomes this fun-loving delightful dog! I’ll let her foster mom tell it in her own words:

Olive: Lab/husky. Medium size. 1.5 yr old. Easy going disposition. Just needs a bit of TLC to get used to the outside world (and she is super soft).
She has been too shy at the shelter to be noticed and has been there way too long. My daughter and I have been socializing her regularly and now she is ready for a forever home -preferably with another dog, or someone who can take the time to make her feel safe and get used to the outside world.  She is amazingly calm and easy to train.   I’ve watched her transform in just one month of socializing.  Great with kids & other dogs.  A gem of a dog – gentle and gorgeous.

I can attest to the transformation: if she is shy in the shelter, she was only shy for moments if at all when I met her. Plus yes she is definitely super-soft. SOMEONE ADOPT THIS DOG!

I took the first three pictures. The rest (without the captions or hovertext) were sent to me by Olive’s foster mom.

Hard to believe she’s half Lab: those ears are standing tall and proud.

Olive has one and one half brown eyes and one half of a blue eye.

Stripey nose. Not ALWAYS a sign of a husky, but it’s often the way to bet. Plus, neat pattern on her forehead.
