Adoption Donation: $400 ($30 optional crate fee)
Meet Oscar, formerly known as Dulce! Oscar was previously adopted but found that his adoptive family was not quite the right fit, so he was returned to rescue. How do I describe Oscar? Have you ever really liked cats, but really wanted a dog? Oscar is your man.
Oscie, as his foster momma calls him, can get snippy at times but if he is given his space, he doesn't have any issues. He likes to have his crate open at all times to retreat if he is feeling overwhelmed. He also likes to sleep with some sort of stuffed toy at night to give him comfort. Otherwise, you may be woken much earlier than planned with a nice loud bark.
Oscar came to me the first week in December. He was unsure of the four pups he was welcomed by but has come to find he kind of likes having some furry companions, if even just one to play with. On occasion, Oscar lets out a shrill howl which I suspect is just because he has been startled. He and I had a pretty big breakthrough in the last few days, he allowed me to pick him up and hold him close to my body. Progress no matter how small!
The perfect adopter for Oscar will be patient, allow him his space, and not expect too much too soon. He does not like to snuggle, he likes to get a treat when he is a good boy, he likes his chew and stuffed toys, and he likes a routine. I prefer only kids over 12 in the home.
If you are interested in helping Oscar out, please apply. Oscar will be placed in the best fit home for him.
