Oscar is a very sweet boy with lots of energy—he could be much younger than eight. He loves to “patrol” the fence line with the neighbors, running back and forth trying to figure out the activity on the other side (usually none). He loves going on walks and alternates between charging ahead and stopping to “sniff-vestigate.” Inside, he follows people around the house a lot but is also content curling up for a snooze. Oscar has made a full recovery since being found wandering the countryside, and you would never know he was neglected. You can see it in his eyes: the thankfulness for saving him and the love for everyone taking care of him. Oscar is a wonderful basset hound, and he promises to bring many years of joy and love to a lucky family willing to bring him into their home.
