Olevar in San Diego, CA

Olevar means playful and ambitious. This adorable pup certainly lives up to that.  

Meet Olevar, a cheerful, gentle, snuggly lovebug who is an instant friend to whomever he meets. He is a 5-year-old Blenheim, born September 5, 2017. This fellow possesses all the best traits of a Cavalier. With his tail a-wagging, Olevar welcomes an introduction to every person and every dog, even big ones. He will wag to make new friends and thinks that groups of people have gathered together just to have a party for him. His foster mom says he has the best personality of almost any dog she has ever met – and that’s saying a lot!

Olevar came to CR-USA when his owner was unable to provide him with the costly medical care he needed. During his intake exam, it was noted that Olevar was slightly overweight at 19.6 lbs with mild luxating patellas. He is now down to 19 lbs. with another suggested pound to lose. Regular exercise will help keep those knees functioning well in the future and be better for his heart and overall health. An anesthetic dental was completed and Olevar lost all his teeth except the four canines. His condition was diagnosed as chronic ulcerative parental stomatitis or CUPS which causes painful gums and face, difficulty eating and tooth loss. Olevar’s new family will need to maintain regular oral care or he could have a flare up of this painful condition and potentially lose his remaining teeth. Olevar is currently on a short-term round of antibiotics to alleviate any ongoing discomfort from his recent dental inflammation. 

It is clear Olevar has had some basic training, is very smart and eager to please. He is likely to give you a ‘high five’ if requested. Olevar is very good on a leash and loves to go for walks. He rides well in the car, sitting nicely in his secure seat, eager to accompany you on outings or road trips. This good boy is very curious of all new adventures and interacts well with the gentle kids he has met at the park.

Olevar is somewhat afraid of the resident cat in his foster home, always keeping his distance. He loves to canoodle with his people and if they’re not available, he will snuggle with his two Cavalier foster siblings, nestling with one on each side. At night, Olevar is found sleeping on the bed big bed between his humans or flanked by his dog family. He may even regale you with the song of his people while in deep sleep, using varying levels of snoring or snorts to soothe you as you doze. 

Olevar’s ideal forever family would have at least one other friendly dog to help show him the ropes and to pal around with, along with a person around much of the time to offer continued affection.
