Oscar – Please Read Bio
WANTED: Adult-only home for Oscar aka Alaska.
This 3 year old, 18 pound, we’re guessing Llasa/poodle mix needs someone 100% committed to his training and squelching his inappropriate need to be the boss. Per our trainer he also must have a dog in his forever home to reprimand him and continue teaching him he’s not the boss. The lack of discipline or boundaries the first several years of his life made him a little unruly. He’s very loving and cuddly but also nippy when he doesn’t get his way – as these breeds tend to be often times. He is still working on leash manners so a fenced in yard is a must. He is good with other dogs.
Oscar also has idiopathic seizures but has not had a seizure while on his meds. So a pill twice a day is the answer. In his forever home, Oscar will need someone WILLING & COMMITTED to his continued medical care (ie keeping him on the medications that work for him) and his confidence building / training procedures. (We will put you in touch with our trainer and if you’re local and in his territory, we will also provide a couple sessions with Ernie to get to know how to best manage our boy and his boundaries.). He will also need a yard to enjoy, an adult-only home, and a confident buddy. The other dog requirement is not so much as a playmate – Oscar kinda just sticks to himself in that regard – but to help with his behavior and give him another dog to look to for cues.
Oscar needs someone familiar with training and dedicated to teaching him his place and sticking with the regiment establishing boundaries. Our trainer is more than happy to demonstrate for his new family effective training techniques.
Oscar is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. Adoption donation is $250.
