This is Olive.
Up until this past weekend, Olive has spent her entire short life tied to a tree in my neighborhood. She caught the eye of a neighbor and friend of mine, the hilarious and brilliant Jen from South Nashville Life. She was tied up outside some apartments that up are run by our neighborhood association, and tying an animal outside in such a way is a breach of their lease (not to mention just not cool, but we’ve already talked about that).
So Jen and I worked with the board of our neighborhood association to speak with the owner about surrendering the dog. When Jen went to check on her one hot day and found her once again with no water, and discovered that the dog’s “owners” had taken off to Florida for a long weekend, her heartstrings snapped right in two. We finally tracked down the ower and she agreed to surrender the puppy to us.
Now Olive is living happily at Jen’s pad, with her two new foster brothers, Marvin & Eli – who, as of yet, are not quite sure what to make of this new guest. Check back tomorrow to hear Jen’s take about a new furry guest in her home!
The best part? Jen is signing up with Agape to be a foster parent, so Olive can get into the Agape program! Woo-hoo!! That means little Olive will be able to reap all the benefits that come with being an Agape dog – food, toys, professional photos, and the whole enchilada of vet care (shots, meds, and the ever-important no-baby surgery). And you know what else that means – Olive will soon be searching for her Furever Family! Is it you?
If you’d like to make Olive part a Furever part of your family, please fill out an application with Agape Animal Rescue.
