What kind of home would be best for me? Oscar needs a calm, low energy home where he can feel comfortable and safe. Given Oscar's history of biting when he is startled, he needs an experienced owner that will work with him to help correct these behaviors. Owner Experience 6: More than 10 years as a dog owner. Has worked with at least one behavior issue that did not require professional intervention. OR has worked with one serious medical issue that required professional care (e.g. Addisons, Diabetes, Epilepsy, etc.)
What is my personality like? When you meet Oscar, he is a friendly guy who enjoys getting attention. Though he was found in the road as a stray, it is clear he has been someone's pet. Oscar was adopted out but was returned due to biting in April. It is believed that Oscar was startled which caused him to bite. Since being back at the farm we have not noticed any type of aggression towards anyone. He seems to be a gentle, shy, but laid back dog that just wants to relax in a nice soft bed. Oscar does well on a leash and is highly treat motivated.
How do I act when I meet new people? Friendly
Tips and Tidbits:
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
