Ollie's Story

We have this sweet boy looking for a forever home! His name is Ollie, he is a 5 year old male pit bull. He is neutered and is around 50 lbs. Ollie is a very unique boy in many ways including that he only has 3 legs, but trust me this does not slow him down. He has tons of energy, loves to run/play, and is always excited for new adventures. On rainy days he would also be content with a few walks and snuggles. Ollie loves making friends with new dogs, but can be quite pushy so there would need to be a meet and greet for any potential housemates. Training is pretty easy with him as long as there are treats involved, so far he knows how to sit, wait for his food, come when called, and we are working on his leash manners. He would need lots of exercise and frequent training to keep his bossy ways under wraps. There will be a few things that we require of those who would be interested in adopting him. He would come with an adoption fee and a few things he has collected during his stay with us. This adoption fee will go towards providing treatment for the next pup that needs our help! If you are interested in this sweet boy or have any questions please email us at or give us a call at 540-586-4290 and ask for Desiree. We can have you fill out an application and schedule an appointment to meet one on one!
