Pet of the Week: Olaf, a good boy

Published 2:06 pm Monday, May 24, 2021


This week we’re featuring a pet you’ve met before: Olaf, a 1-year-old Pharoah hound-shepherd mix with enormous ears and a giant smile. Our partners at Boyle County Animal Control rescued Olaf from an unfortunate situation last November, and he’s been looking for the right home ever since.

Olaf has spent several months in training with Logan Greene at Greene Outdoors, LLC and is well-behaved with the use of a remote control training collar. He’s got excellent recall and pays close attention to Logan when he’s working with him. Here’s more about the sweet boy in his own words.

“Hi, I’m Olaf! My friend Logan says I’m a good boy; I just have some special requests. For one thing, city life isn’t for me. I’ve got lots of energy, and I need room to run and be free! Do you have a large fenced yard that I can romp around and explore?

My perfect life would be with someone who is just as active as me. You’ll love taking me on long walks; I’m awesome on a leash and know to look to my human for direction. I haven’t been hiking or swimming yet, but I bet I’d be great at it!

Once I’ve exhausted my energy, I enjoy getting belly rubs, giving kisses, and snuggling. My charms are hard to resist, and I develop a strong bond with my person. I’d like a home without children, and I prefer to be an only dog because, seriously, I am that fabulous – you don’t need anyone other than me! Make me the center of your world, and I will repay you with years of devotion and companionship!

If you’re the kind of human who will maintain my remote collar training and give me the structure I need to thrive, then you might be just who I am looking for!”

Olaf is up-to-date on his vaccinations, microchipped, and more than ready for a home of his own. Check out this video of him on our Facebook page to see how well-behaved he is:
