Oliver is a downright showstopper! This loving and intelligent 1-year-old American Eskimo Dog/terrier mix (“Eskie terrier”) has the perfect combination of good looks and charm. At 15 pounds, he is perfectly proportioned and looks like a big dog shrunk down to little dog size. This outgoing boy is happy for your company, and loves to meet people and other dogs. He has a cotton white coat, sweet endearing expression, dark eyes, and a plumed tail that wags all day long!
Oliver loves to entertain and be part of all family activities. He is super snuggly and is a lapdog in every sense of the word. Oliver’s foster family says he loves to flop on the lap of anyone who is sitting on the floor, sometimes on his back with his paws up in the air. He loves playing with rope toys, and his favorite thing to do with his toys is to bring them all into his crate and stash them under his covers. Oliver is very generous and will often bring his toys over to his foster family and drop them in their laps. This is his little way of hinting that he is ready for a game of fetch! Oliver is great at communicating his needs. When he is hungry or thirsty and his bowl is empty, he will casually pick it up and bring it over to your feet to let you know he’s ready for more.
Oliver is making excellent progress learning how to walk on a leash. He absolutely loves walking! He also likes to go for rides in the car, and likes to sit in the passenger seat with his paws daintily crossed for most of the ride.
Once you look into his sweet little face and give him a scratch behind the ears, Oliver will be your best friend for life.
