Ollie - A Sweet Heinz 57 Dog.........
Susan Daffron talks to Vicki Korobkin from Pet Connect Rescue in Maryland about a dog named Ollie who is available for adoption. Pet Connect Rescue was founded in 2005, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. After saving and adopting out dogs displaced by the hurricane, they continued to work to save homeless animals the are in danger of euthanasia at animal shelters. The animals are brought into rescue from over-extended local shelters as well as rural shelters from West Virginia to Georgia.
Pet Connect Rescue is a non breed-specific organization committed to stepping forward wherever there is the greatest need. Ollie was the favorite dog of volunteers in a rural shelter, and a special plea was made for Pet Connect to rescue him. He was adopted, but then returned to Pet Connect by his original adopters because he got out. Ollie is a mix of several different breeds, probably hound and terrier mixed a smaller breed because he only weighs about 30 pounds. Ollie is an affectionate, playful dog who gets along with dogs, cats and kids.
