He does have some interesting behaviours that I feel are very modifiable, but that work does need to be put in. For someone who's rehabbed or fostered much, it would be a piece of cake...for a beginner, he might be a bit too much.
As per the previous owners, he lived with cats and kids - but I'm not sure I'd put him with other beings that are too little, as he's very active and a bit of a bull in a china shop.
Finally - photos so you can see how interesting and handsome (in the most comical way) he is. I love how he has the appearance of an out there cartoon character, but he carries this straight face and seems to have no clue that he's funny looking.
Oscar would do great with an active lifestyle, and someone who has the patience for a 2-year-old guy needing a lot of remedial work. He could go with older kids, but he really needs to be handled in a way that gives him some confidence and allows him to mend his shaky self-esteem and insecurity about the people in his life. He is about 4 dogs in one red, wire-haired, big-headed body. He LOVES his toys, walks not too bad considering, is doing well with crate-training and is responding to his foster parents' positive teaching of manners and explanations of boundaries. He is quite a hoot, and definitely would be the conversation piece in a room full of dog people and their pets.
