Poor Ole has experienced some ups and downs of late. A few months ago he was stuck in a shelter waiting for someone to offer him what every dog deserves - a loving home.

So when he was eventually adopted with a loving family, everybody thought Ole was off to live his happily ever after. But just weeks later, this poor pup was back where he started - living in a shelter and pining for a family to call his own.

Ole is back to square one

So where did all go wrong for Ole? Was he a 'bad' boy? Did his family not love him enough? Of course not! Ole just couldn't settle into his new home. He's not familiar with spending time around young children and his instinct to protect his owner means he doesn't like sharing space with other pets.

Ole can still get his happy ending

Ole's story is a sad one. In fact, his owners had tears in their eyes when they handed him over. But sometimes the hardest decision is also the right one. Plus, Ole's tale isn't over yet.
