Say hello to Oliver! He is our 7 year old golden retriever/collie mix. We call Oliver our miracle boy. He was in very bad shape from being hit by a car when he came to us. With the superior care and love by Dr. Reese and staff at Specialized Veterinary Services in Ft. Myers, Oliver is doing fantastic today! He has mastered his physical therapy and he now walks and runs like nothing happened. He is a very sweet, loving boy who gets along with everyone. Loves other dogs and gets along with cats. Oliver will require a fenced yard and someone who can walk him regularly everyday to just continue with his on going therapy to keep his muscle mass strong and secondly because he LOVES his walks!! He also loves car rides and is a dog you could certainly bring anywhere! He loves to swim and goes on boat rides to the beach with his foster home often! He loves kids, but we are only going to let him go to a home with older children (teenagers). He is a velcro boy :-) He has quite the personality and will keep you laughing. His foster home says he is a very easy, laid back boy. It would be great if he was also with another dog, but not necessary.
Some family is going to be very lucky to have him! Are you that family?
