Oscar was found as a stray in the middle of a rainstorm. Good citizens saw him standing there, and stopped to scoop him up. Oscar was surrendered to Carolina Poodle Rescue for a safe place, medical attention, and hopefully a forever home. 

Oscar's caregivers describe him to look like a baby seal! When you meet Oscar, and he is with his main caregiver Mickala, 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 does well on a leash and is highly treat motivated. He does bark until he is warmed up to you. Oscar is very about his own terms. Everything is done on his time. Oscar is not one you can push buttons on. Once his pace his met, he is a very loving little guy. 

Oscar is a picky dog. He has been adopted 3 times and returned. He is a wonderful dog 85% of the time, but he will resource guard and turn on people. And this results in biting. He has one caregiver that he really loves and does very well with her. Oscar needs a calm, low energy home where he can feel comfortable and safe. Given Oscar's history of biting, his new owner needs to have experience with behavioral issues, especially resource guarding. He needs a home where he can be his true best self and work on the biting. He truly needs to be the only dog in the home also, its better for him to just be the center of attention. 

Oscar doesn't need to go to a first time dog owner, he needs someone experienced with behavioral issues. He also must have a home where he is the only dog. He just wants to be the center of attention!
