Looks like: Medium Mixed Breed
Male, 14 years old, 19 pounds
Oleander (Ollie for short) is your snuggle buddy, walking partner, and work-from-home coworker, all wrapped in one adorably fuzzy package. Ollie loves all people, kids included, though he doesn't play favorites unless it's dinner time. Then, his favorite is whoever has the food! Ollie is looking for a companion, someone who has the time to give him back all the love he wants to give to them. While Ollie needs a human companion, he'd also be happy with a fluffy friend and partner-in-playtime. He's great with both cats and dogs. Don't let his 14 years fool you! He's happy to sleep much of the day, but when it's time for a walk, he's more than ready to go!

Ollie recovered from a spinal injury that left him paralyzed, but recently, he has been undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer and kidney disease. He is on a few medications for these conditions and he takes them like a champ! He does have some nighttime anxiety that is managed well with some supplements. Despite his medical issues, Ollie is full of tail wags and kisses for everyone, so it's hard to tell that he's not feeling his best!

Oleander came to us when his guardians realized he would be happier and healthier in a home without a large dog brother. Being bumped into and knocked down sometimes was not the best thing for his back, so his guardians made the difficult decision to rehome him.
