We Need an Experienced Foster for Ollie.
Ollie, previously named Frankie, was originally with RMCR and was adopted by a family in
South Dakota. That adoption did not work out as the family was not able to work with Ollie’s
issues. He was kindly taken in by the South Dakota Canine Center in Sturgis for a complete
temperament evaluation and training. He now resided with them until we get foster placement
back in Colorado. Here is what the Canine Center has to say about Ollie:
Ollie came to us for a temperament evaluation after an incident in his newly adoptive home. He was adopted by a family in the Black Hills along with his canine companion at the time. Ollie has significant “resource guarding” behavior. Overall, he is a sweet and compliant little guy but when he believes something of value is his he is committed to owning it. He will severely guard the item. Overall, Ollie is very easy to be around. Great size, solid obedience, crate trained, travels well. He has some low-
grade ear issues. He does not like cats. He has been solid with other dogs, no resources present. However, Ollie has retained his rehearsed and ingrained temperament issues. Ollie needs the right foster home with good leadership with adults and ultimately his adopter. Controlled access to resources and continued high expectations with obedience and training will be necessary. No kids and no visiting kids without household management.
The Center in South Dakota where Ollie is currently awaiting foster placement back with RMCR is happy to help with training consultation and ongoing training. Please help us to find Ollie his forever home! You can address your current questions about fostering Ollie to the RMCR Foster Director who has worked with Frankie, aka Ollie, in the past.
