In order to meet 'Oskar" please complete the Expression of Interest Form.
Think Scooby Doo, Pluto and Snoopy all rolled together.
Oskar is goofy, sometimes un-coordinated, loyal, affectionate and smart.
He can take a while to come out of his shell with new people but on the flip side can be 'hyper' when meeting new dogs - he likes meeting new friends. Oskar loves being patted so much he will gently use his paw to bring your hand back to him hoping for more if you stop.
This ‘big sook’ will also alert you to something strange about the property and is loyal to those he loves. He is not a nuisance barker though.
Oskar currently receives a great deal of enjoyment finding a way to escape, perhaps because he thinks it is a game when everyone starts chasing him yelling out his name. Head strong at times, this well meaning and sweet ‘teenager’ will thrive in a home that is firm but kind.
Oskar will suit a family with a moderately active lifestyle that want a dog to be involved with family activities. Oskar also needs a secure yard with kids a little older so they won’t be knocked over by an exuberant, goofy and happy dog.
Oskar will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly or time poor.
Yes. Oskar is a friendly and playful young boy that never seems to run out of steam.
Yes. Oskar loves his human siblings. As he can accidentally knock someone small over we recommend any kids be at least primary school aged and only if gentle and calm around animals.
Medium - playful and moderately active. He will forgive you if you miss a day.
How is this dog on a lead?
Like most dogs he starts off pulling but settles, especially on a halti harness.
How is this dog off the lead?
Oskar can be a little cheeky and send everyone on a game of chase. He tends to take off and won't come back.
Yes. Oskar needs a secure medium to large yard. Normal 2 meter high colour bond fencing will do the job.
Tolerance to being alone.
Going for walks and playing with his family. Oskar loves to give and receive cuddles too. His favourite treats are carrots and rawhides.
Strangers and vacuum cleaners.
