When she was still a young puppy, this pittie was abandoned by her owners because of her condition.

Olive had mange, a cherry eye, and she was clearly neglected.

When her owners abandoned her, Jess of the rescue group Sidewalk Specials took her in without a second thought. And Olive, despite her terrible experience with humans, sensed that and wouldn’t let Jess go.

“She’s quite scared and not sure what to do so I picked her up,” Jess recalled. “She was quite timid but she didn’t let go of me. She was like, ‘Yeah, this is my new mom.'”

Aside from her obvious condition, Olive was beat-up and rundown. She slept for three whole days.

Good for her. She deserved to recharge to start her new life.

And when she woke up, it was almost like she was a different dog.

“She went full crazy,” Jess described. “She’s got energy levels you would not even believe.”

Olive really had a neglected life in her old house.

She has the energy and the vigor to live her life and she just needed to have the space to literally run free. And she used that freedom to heal completely. She did need to have surgery for her cherry eye, but even that wasn’t a deterrent for her to enjoy her life. She was making friends with everyone.

In fact, Jess’ best friend, Rachel, has a dog named Ally and they became instant best friends, too.

Every time they see each other, which is almost every day, it’s the best day of their lives. Olive loves loving Ally and Ally loves being loved by Olive, too. And Ally is such a great influence on her.

One time, they all went swimming but Olive was afraid of the water. But when she saw Ally coming in and out of the water, she decided since Ally can do it, I’m going to do it as well. The next thing Jess saw, Olive was swimming in the water with Ally.

Plus Rachel had another best friend, who also had a dog, whose name was Pea. Pea, Olive, and Ally became a dog trio and they played together like there was no tomorrow.

Olive loved to play with other dogs but they lived in other houses. So Jess decided to bring another dog home so that there was another dog who lived with Olive.

Olive was smitten.

Jess was holding Olive back so she doesn’t smother the new puppy with kisses, but Olive couldn’t be stopped.

It was an instant bond for the two of them, and they were just so happy to be in each other’s lives. Olive and Rory play all day until they both pass out on the couch. And, just like with Ally, Olive loves to love Rory, and she spends all day licking Rory.

“I look at her sometimes and think, ‘I wanna be more like you.’ Just being game to do things and living life to absolute fullest,” Jess shared about her love for Olive.
