03-05-19 - Olivia is a lovely gentle ex breeding beagle girl. She is much quieter than her kennel friend. Olivia doesnt get walk on a lead but she will learn this in no time, especially with another happy waggy friend in her new home! She will leaen housetraining best with a dog to follow. Olivia knows her name and gets on very well with both big and small dogs alike. In time she will relax and start to bloom.

Olivia has started to relax a little with us now and has become a quiet and chilled out beagle who is rather lovely. She has started to learn to walk on a lead and really isn't worried about wearing a harness. Rather than steam ahead, Olivia much prefers to plod along at a slower pace.
Olivia socialises perfectly with her two beagle buddies and I see no reason why she wouldn't fit in with any dogs that potential adopters have. At this time Olivia would be happier living with other canines as she needs their support.
In my opinion Olivia has a lovely temperament and may suit a family with children that are over 5 years old. Generally beagles are adorable, friendly and soft natured and they don't come much more adorable than Olivia.

Olivia is one of the quietest dogs on my section. She’s a really lovely girl to work with as she’s very easy going with a laid back look on life. All Olivia really wants is a nice warm bed to snuggle up in throughout the day and tasty food to munch on.
Olivia is a very gentle girl and is very easy to handle. She does love a fuss but is so laid back she can forget to get out of bed to ask for love. However, when you start making a fuss of her, she certainly doesn’t want you stop. She’ll look up at me with her beautiful eyes as if to say, don’t go yet, keep making a fuss of me please!
Although she does love her bed, she will also happily go outside with her kennel mates, and she also walks nicely on a lead. She isn’t afraid of traffic, other people or dogs when she’s out and about. She does love to stop and sniff at an opportunity, but that’s just her using her fabulous Beagle sense of smell.
Olivia also has common Beagle trait of loving food. She loves her food, eats with no problem and will happily eat any food. This is likely to help when training her as she will eat any treat. She is in a kennel with three other Beagles and she waits patiently for her food bowl, and although she eats quick, she is very respectful at dinner times with me and her kennel mates.
Olivia will need a home with other dogs, this is because she is much more confident around them  and it will also help her in progress quickly in the home environment.

I met Olivia today, what a pretty girl with such a sweet, gentle nature. She happily followed me out of her kennel and walked lovely on the lead enjoying the attention of having a fuss made of her. One can see from the photos what a beautiful soul our Olivia is. At this time Olivia will still need to have a resident dog in the household.

Olivia (Livvy in foster) arrived with us almost a week ago and has won us all over with her gentle, kind and unassuming nature. This beautiful girl has just fitted in, without a murmur. Respectful to our dogs, not clingy with them or pushy and just waits in turn for fuss/treats.
Livvy has a very melodic 'arrroooooo' which she sings when she sees her food getting prepared or when she sees her foster Dad if he has been at work but is otherwise pretty quiet.
Livvy hasn't had a single accident in the house this week, our back door has been open in this lovely weather but it is unlikely that she would ask to go out if she needed to toilet.
Livvy will pace and winge a little if we go out of sight, this is decreasing as the week goes on and she realises that we will come back and that she doesn't have to follow us from room to room. For this reason Livvy needs someone who is around a lot, who will let her sleep upstairs if she needs to. Despite us having resident dogs that she can hang out with Livvy is very people focused and loves to be near her family.
Livvy walks on a lead, she is not quite as confident near roads and certain things will make her jump but she adores mooching over the fields!
She has been sweet to every dog she has met from wiggly puppies to adult dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Livvys perfect home will be one where she can relax, sunbathe, snooze and go for walks, a really busy home with boisterous dogs would not suit her and although she would never grumble, at her time of life she really deserves a home where she can stand out from the crowd, enjoy some lovely peace and quiet and become the best friend that anyone would be proud to have as part of their family.

Hi Everyone Olivia here, although my foster family call me 'Livvy' most of the time (unless im doing something I shouldn't, like trying to reach the bin, then i get called Olivia!) I have been here a couple of weeks now and have really started to settle.
I now sleep downstairs with my foster sisters instead of sleeping with the humans upstairs. If I sleep downstairs however, I do wake up really early, as soon as I hear the birds start singing whereas if I sleep upstairs in my den with my foster family I sleep in until a reasonable time, so I will need to have a family that will let me sleep upstairs if they are not dawn risers!
I have not had a single accident since i have been here, I am such a sweetie with everyone. I get on really well with my foster sisters, even the one with pointy ears who bats me on the nose if I try and sniff her!
Because I am so people focused, I could potentially go to a perfect home without a resident dog if someone was around all the time and let me sleep upstairs. If not rehomed with resident dogs I would need doggy friends perhaps amongst family members/friends that I could meet up with regularly as I do enjoy sociable doggy interactions.
I really enjoy my walks, I currently have one field walk in the morning, where I enjoy lots of sniffs then a pavement walk later on in the day to get me used to traffic etc. I walk so nicely on the lead, some things do still make me jump, but I soon regain my composure and start walking again. I am essentially a superstar and according to my foster family, someone will be so lucky to have me join their family.

Livvy continues to delight her foster family with her gentle nature, slight naughty streak and general awesomeness!
This girl is great with dogs, people, kind and gentle with dog savvy children and also lives with a cat. Yes she will raid the bin, and pinch things (but is happy for you to have them back) these minor flaws are so easy to overlook because Olivia is a dog in million.
Someone is missing out on a girl who takes what life has given her and enjoys just every aspect of it, dinner times are so exciting, walks are thorughly enjoyed (Livvy walks excellently on a lead), visitors are there to say hi to and snuggly duvets and sofas are just made for sleeping on.
Everyone who has met Olivia has commented on her nature, her beautiful looks and her joy at the simple things in life, this girl has so much to give, we adore her and hope that her forever family finds her soon.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

Although OLIVIA is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £100 to help cover the costs that have been incurred. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
