Oliver was found as a stray after he refused to leave a family’s backyard in Memphis, Tennessee. Animal control officers went to collect him, but every time one of them got close to him, he would jump over the fence and out of the yard, as if it was a game. They finally had to set up a humane trap in order to catch him, and brought him to Memphis Animal Services.
From the moment Oliver arrived, his new shelter friends could tell that he’d likely had a home or someone taking care of him at some point. He was very smart and absolutely loved food and treats, and knew that if he listened and was well-behaved, he would be showered with them.
