Ollie is a stunning English Labrador Retriever who was professionally bred and trained as a hunting dog in England. He’s six years old now and was brought Stateside last year, and already he’s forged an unbreakable bond with his new owner. He is by his owner’s side always and accepts commands only from him. It is a wonder to see the discipline and focus of a dog at work. Ollie’s eyes shine with intelligence and determination, and his regal posture and glossy coat denote years of traditional and history.

But at his heart, he’s still a dog just like any other, who lives to please his master and loves a good dive in the lake! One of his favorite rewards after a successful drive is getting to put his paws up for a hug and nuzzle, and when he retrieves his prize his tail wags a mile a minute. Aren’t dogs the best?
