Olly has recently come back to us due to a family difficulty which left them in absolutely no other option but to return Olly to our care, understandably they are heartbroken but have given us lots of information so we can help him find a new home.

We originally had Olly after his racing days were over and he was starting his retirement, we are hoping that he finds a home as quickly as he did before as he isn't a fan of kennels especially now having a taste of domesticated living... not to mention finding his love of sofas!

We are ideally looking for a home with no or older children as his previous owners have told us he can be a little possessive with high value items but they have worked really hard to combat this and had made a great deal of improvement. Olly commendably gives ample warning if he isn't happy about a person taking the item from him, he has never been put in a position to take this any further but he will need owners to continue working with distraction and trade going forward.

In the home Olly is as relaxed as they come, opting to spend the majority of the day lazing around snoozing, he is housetrained (though may need reminding of this after his stay in kennels), he travels really well, he is super affectionate and friendly with everyone he meets... his only downside in the home is that he is counter height so no food left on the side is safe from his nose & stomach.

Olly has lived with a cat though he will chase if the opportunity arises but nothing more, he is also good with other dogs though he's not overly interested in them as he's more interested in his walks and sniffs.

We are looking for a home where someone is around a lot as he isn't a huge fan of being on his own, in his previous home he was gradually built up to be left for around 2 hours a day cozied up in his crate with the TV on, so any new owner will need to help him built up to be happy left longer.

On the lead Olly walks immaculately always by your side on a nice loose lead trotting along, his owners have told us he has good recall and some basic commands.

Overall Olly is a gorgeous boy who deserves another chance and will no doubt make someone a very lucky owner to have him.
