From south Central to a Beach city – Ollie’s story
Ollie does not look like a typical Beagle. He is actually a Sheltie-Bassett. Due to the fact his owner(s) had too many dogs, Ollie, most likely the senior dog of the pack, was the chosen one to be dumped at the South Central-Los Angeles Animal Shelter the day before Christmas Eve-2017. Receiving news another animal rescue declined to help Ollie, Bean’s Beagles members Dolores Ellis and Yolanda Macias could not turn their backs on Ollie especially during the Christmas season.
Ollie’s Christmas wish came true on December 26th when Dolores and Yolanda rescued him from the shelter. Now came the hard part, finding him a place to stay until a foster could be found. After an abundance of networking BACK BAY ANIMAL HOSPITAL located in Newport Beach, California, said they would be more than happy to have Ollie board with them until other arrangements could be made.
Ollie’s Christmas wishes and dreams continued to grow as an angel by the name of Leah, read on social media, Ollie needed a foster. She immediately contacted Bean’s Beagles Dog Rescue asking if she could foster him. Filled with gratitude, the answer was “yes ! “. Leah visited Ollie and it was love at first sight for both of them.
A few days later after Ollie had been cleared of kennel cough, Leah brought him into her home. Ollie was in heaven as Leah showered him with love, care and happiness, things he so desperately needed and deserved.
On January 27, 2018 Leah officially adopted Ollie and everyone at Bean’s Beagles Dog Rescue could not be happier for the both of them. Ollie went from being alone and unwanted to becoming one loved and cherished beautiful boy.
Leah and Ollie attended and volunteered at our recent adoption event at the EARTHWISE PET SUPPLY store in Huntington Beach. Although Ollie was surrounded by beautiful ladies at the event, he only has eyes for Leah.
Leah and Ollie, you have touched our lives in a forever heartfelt special way. We love you both and wish you years of happiness together.
