OSCAR – 12752
Safe - 12-2-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Oscar. My animal id is #12752. I am a desexed male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 16-Nov-2017.
Oscar is a young boy who is at risk due to deteriorating behavior in the care center. He should go to an experienced, only dog home that can manage his energy, teach basic leash manners, and address his enthusiastic chewing. He has no medical concerns at this time.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: He’s such a cute little guy, and for whatever reason, to me, it looks like he dipped his nose in whipped cream! He also has the best head tilt on the planet. When I made squeaky sounds at him, his head tilted so much it was almost backwards, and he does it in both directions! He’s bound to win an Oscar for that performance 🙂 He’s so cute, and small and tail-waggy, he’s just a happy go lucky little guy who loves to be with people and make new friends. Likely housetrained, he pottied as soon as we were outside, and in a pen, he loves chasing the ball but is waiting for his new person to teach him to retrieve. He loves treats, taking them super gently, and with some coaxing will show off his ‘sit’. Oscar has such lively and fun energy it’s recommended that a home with older children will suit him best. He never stops smiling, he never stops wagging his tail, and he never stops showing you how much he wants to be your friend. Are you Oscar-friend ready? Come meet him today.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 49.5 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 2. Blue
