Cute as can be and just as sweet!
They call me : Olaf

Predicted Breed: Maltese mix.
Sex: neutered male
Approximate Age: 8 years
Weight: 9.5 Lbs.
Rescued from: California
Likes: Going for walks, cuddling, sleeping in my bed, treats, small squeaky toys chasing around the yard.
Dislikes: Being outside in the dark, big sudden noises
Ideal Home: Olaf's ideal home would be a quiet home with a family that will take him out for his daily walks. He is shy to meet new people but warms up quickly. He would do well in a home where his humans are home more than away. He is a quiet boy unless he has access to a window and then will react to the outside world. If this is managed he can go to an attached home.

Attached home, Detached home, Condo, Senior home, Quiet home, Left alone 2-4 hrs only
Energy Level: Low
Experience with Kids: recommend only Children over 12 yrs
Experience with cats: unknown
Medical Needs: It should be noted that Olaf does have trachea collapse. Olaf is recovering from a recent neuter and dental and is on meds for a few more days.
Training Needs: Olaf really enjoys his daily walks, when he sees another dog he doesn't react but will avoid an interaction with them. Some confidence building on meeting dogs and people is necessary for Olaf. He does bark sometimes indoors but mostly if he has access to a window or if he hears the doorbell.

Knows sit, House trained, Barks outdoors, Shy, Walks on leash

From Olaf's Foster: 

Olaf is a snuggle bug, and loves to be where his person is. Snuggled up on the sofa watching TV, out in the yard sunbathing, or on his special blanket on the bed he’s dozy and content. He’s intelligent in learning new commands, really enjoys his walks, and is cautiously happy to meet new people. Olaf came into the rescue with dental disease and since his dental surgery he is full of curiosity, friendliness and energy.
