Gorgeous Oscar is a young Podengo x lad with a short, soft, black coat and white chest. Oscar came to us as a puppy, with his two brothers after being abandoned on a busy road and was lucky enough to go straight into foster. The foster carer has done an amazing job of educating him and his siblings.
Oscar can be a little nervous and is not totally confident with new experiences, however, he is ok with traffic. He’s quite sensitive and needs human reassurance. He is good on the lead and responsive. He is a very loving and playful medium sized boy. Sociable with people and other dogs when he knows them, but not tested for cats. We think he would love to play with older children above 12 years old. He is active and likes his walks. He would suit a family with another dog already for company for him.
His Best Points :
Sociable and friendly, eager to please.
Foster Report :
The quietest one of the three brothers and also intelligent and loving, but a little more timid than his brothers. Gets on well with his siblings and no food sharing issues. Would like to live with another dog for confidence.
Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.
All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
