Brian Dearing of Pevely said his family’s 2-year-old dog, Olaf, is a good-natured pet.
“He’s a bully – a mix of pit bull and bulldog,” said Dearing, who lives with his family in Pevely. “He weighs 70 pounds. He’s like a big teddy bear. The kids climb all over him.”
Olaf gets along with the Dearing family’s other dog, but not other canines.
“He doesn’t like other dogs,” Dearing said. “He gets along with our other dog, Tanker. Tanker’s a fox terrier.”
Dearing said Olaf can be playful.
“He chases after rabbits in the yard,” he said. “He likes his toys. He chews on a lot of stuff.”
The Dearings enjoy Olaf.
“He’s a valued member of the family,” Dearing said. “He’s just a good dog.”
