Hey all!  It’s me, Oscar!  An energetic guy with an estimated date of birth of February 2011.  I’m healthy, neutered, and up-to-date on vaccines.  I am even housetrained, and just waiting for my forever home to find me!

Did you check out my pictures?  I clean up nicely if I should say so myself.  I was a mess, found as a stray with 6 lbs. of matted fur on me.  Yes, 6 lbs!!!!!  It hurt me, all those knots and pulling on my fur to try to get them out.  So, the people at the shelter in Louisiana had to sedate me while they worked on all that awful matted fur.  Look what was underneath!  A beauty with a nice, shiny coat and lots of spunk.  I love to play with tennis balls, primarily and enjoy squeaky toys as well.  I don’t mind playing with the other dogs in my foster home and will playfully bark and growl in a fun way when I share toys with them.  Barking is my favorite way to express myself! 

So, I have to tell you that after unveiling my new look and having my eyes exposed for all to see, the vet suspected an eye-ulcer, which is all cleared up, now.  But, I experience dry-eye, so daily drops for me work just fine and I’ll likely need them for a lifetime. 

The say I’m a tall dude, and weigh in at 35 lbs., but am not overweight.  All muscle is what I’m told!  I’m very strong and pull a bit on leash; especially when I see another dog.  I get really excited and start my barking!

While I’m a very fun-loving, smart dog, I do have a past that may have included some sort of abuse.  I get very nervous while getting groomed and don’t appreciate young children who don’t respect my space, sneak up on me or grab my ears.   Young children sort of intimidate me with their curiosity, and I’m very sensitive about anyone messing with my ears… so a home with either no kids or older kids would be much better for me.  My foster mom has said I’m very well-mannered and am a really good guy. 

Stay tuned for more information on me as I adjust to my new environment with GCCSR!  I’m at a great foster home where I get to play with another dog, play ball in the yard, and even go to the beach to play in the waves.  I hope that life is looking better for me.  I would do just fine in the right home!­
