Oscar was pulled from a local animal shelter. Oscar was heartworm positive when we got him. He has finished full treatment and is ready for a home.

Oscar is

VERY weary about new people. He will bark and growl in his run until he gets to know you.

  He is much better outside of a crate or run, and much better with women than men. He needs lots of patience for the right home. He does not like new people but once he warms up to you he's as sweet as can be! He loves to run and give kisses. He will jump he definitely could use some training. He will also dig out of any area. This boy is curious!

Oscar can be a very, very sweet dog. He likes to show affection and to get attention - when he wants it. He has bitten and broken the skin on one occasion since his time here with us. What we have found is that he does best with people that he knows and trust, versus complete strangers. Oscar needs a strong leader who can teach him some manners and work with him. He loves to play and run out in the field. Oscar has a lot of energy and needs someone who is able to exercise him. 

Oscar shows signs of resource guarding - he will act ugly in his crate sometimes and over treats.  We definitely think his behavior could be modified with some training.

At this time we believe he would thrive best in a home where he is the only pet. He has not made many canine friends in his time here - mainly due to his dominant personality.
