Facts about Oso

Devastatingly handsome Oso (as in Oh so handsome!) is looking to be taken seriously, not just for his hunky good looks but for his brains, as well. He wants to fall in love with someone who enjoys learning as much as he does and will challenge his intelligence. His genetic makeup is unknown, but whatever it is it all adds up to a very sweet soul. Oso is very tolerant; not overly sensitive to sounds and movement. He might enjoy living with children, although he has not done that in the past. His previous guardian stated that he likes children. We love dogs who love children!

Oso could use a little workout program (who of us couldn't?), so make sure his calorie intake is low enough and his calorie burn is high enough to make a difference. He needs a commitment from an exercise buddy in order to use some of his extra pounds and build more muscle. Daily walks, teaching games and keeping him busy will go far to helping him tone up and bond up with you. Family Dog 1 will be a good place to start working his brain as well.

You will notice Oso gets excited when he sees other dogs. He pulls hard on his leash and whines. When he actually gets close enough to meet dogs (large and small), he is surprisingly polite greeting them. Obedience training will help slow down that enthusiasm, as it can look a little overwhelming to other dogs and their people. For more fun and games consider a Nose Work class.

Oso is oh so ready to be your new best friend. You honestly couldn't do any better. Meet our gorgeous boy and make this an oh so happy ending.
