Sarah Sarkees just looked at little Oliver’s fluffy face and she was in love. “I came across his photo online and had to meet him,” she says. She headed to Fort Worth to adopt him from the Humane Society North Texas and brought him home to Lakewood. Now 3 years old, Oliver has never met a stranger: he is quick to kiss anyone he comes across. He also likes to hang out at the local dog park where he prefers playing with the big dogs versus the ones his size. “He thinks he’s much bigger than his 19 pounds,” Sarkees says. “He also loves hanging out on dog friendly patios in the neighborhood and making new puppy and people friends. Or just going for a ride in the car. He can’t have enough wind running through his fur.”
