Oscar loves to chew on bones and loves attention. He is selective regarding the dogs he plays with but when he is with the right friend, he loves to play. Oscar enjoys being brushed and loves to give kisses. He would do best with older kids who know how to respect his boundaries. Oscar is learning basic obedience and knows the “touch” command.
Oscar is a two year old Akita mix and weighs 73 pounds.
Oscar has heartworms and will be starting treatment soon. He would greatly benefit from having a quiet home to recuperate in rather than trying to rest in a noisy and stressful shelter environment. If you would like to provide a foster home, or foster-to-adopt home, during Oscar’s heartworm treatment, Helping Strays will provide everything you need; the medical care, crate, food, etc. Foster-to-adopt would be a great way to get to know. Finalizing the adoption would be done once treatment is complete.
Oscar’s adoption fee is $200; he is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccines.
