Oscar was rescued with his little Buddy, Felix.  They came from a North GA shelter as part of a hoarding case.  Oscar is extremely timid and takes a while to warm up to you, and even then, he only lets you pet under his chin, sometimes you can scratch behind his ears, but he runs away if you raise your hand to pet his head or back.  We have been unable to catch him except to throw a treat in a crate.  He will jump on your legs for a treat and follow you around all day.  He likes the company of all dogs and is very playful, especially with his friend, Felix.  For this reason, they should be adopted together.  Felix gives him courage to approach you upon first meeting. Oscar is going to take some work, and needs a patient and understanding rescue-minded, dog-experienced adopter.  Even though his foster mom can't pick him up yet to hug him and snuggle with him, he has wormed his way into her heart, and she looks forward to giving him the little bit of affection he allows. When he finally comes out of his shell, someone is going to have a wonderful little dog.

Alcovy dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines, up to date on heart-worm preventative and flea preventative and micro-chipped. If interested in adoption, please complete an online application on Alcovy Pet Rescue's website at www.alcovypet.com. You must have a vet reference to adopt. We verify the care of past/current pets. Applications without a vet reference will not be approved for adoption. Our goal is to have the very best home for all our dogs and cats and therefore we reserve the right to approve or deny an application based on what we determine is in the pet's best interest.

A home visit check may be required. Adoption fees vary and each pet has their fee listed on our website. An ADOPTION APPLICATION can be submitted online at www.alcovypet.com. Applications will not be considered without a vet reference.
