He is underweight, matted, and has a pretty bad ear infection. He also has a grade III heart murmur, healed rib fractures, a luxating patella. Despite his condition, Olivia is a friendly guy, and even did well on his SAFER! Please help Olivia find a cozy place to live out his golden years, and pull him from BACC today!

Behavior: Average Home
Olivia came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. It was reported that Olivia allowed be touched and allowed all handling. During SAFER Olivia had soft body posture when interacting with the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Olivia was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Olivia was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Olivia appears to be friendly, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
