Do you like to hit the snooze button a few times in the morning? Oscar does too! This cutie is happy to cuddle in bed until late in the morning. He will also politely lounge around the house once he does get up, maybe chewing on a nice bone or stuffed toy. But don’t let his lazy, homebody attitude fool you. He is more than happy to join his human for a nice long walk or jog. He also loves swimming and wading in any body of water he can find.

At the shelter, Oscar spends his time playing fetch and and going for walks with his favorite volunteers. He has had lots of behavior training and likes to show off his great leash manners. He also spent some time in a foster home, where he not only did he prove his love for sleep and snuggling, but also that he’s crate and house-trained.

Oscar bonds closely with his humans and needs a low-key home with a patient and loving individual or couple. He may be able to live with another well-matched pup, and he seems to prefer the company of lady dogs. His biggest dream is a yard with his very own kiddie pool!

Oscar is affectionate, silly, smart, and eager to please. He also happens to be extremely adorable. He cannot wait to be living it up with a family of his own, one that will be dedicated to continuing his training and perfecting his skills.

And if you find yourself admiring the incredible dog house featured behind Oscar, you won’t want to miss Barkitecture 2017—a free, family-friendly event—held on November 4th! Learn more at!
