Meet adoptable Pals dogs on Saturday and cats on Sunday at PetSmart

Oliver, a great little dog who is well mannered and gets along great with other dogs and with people, is available for adoption from Pals Animal Rescue. He is house- and crate-trained and very smart — so smart and athletic that he needs a 6-foot privacy fence. He plays fetch when he wants to, loves belly rubs and has a 9 p.m. bedtime.
