And now a few words from me:
Hello! My name is Oscar and I am very excited to meet new people. I am a high-energy boy who is looking for an active home with people who have lots of time to keep me busy. I love to be with people, but I am learning some new boundaries so I don’t get anxious when they leave me alone. I would love to be your walking companion and I love to give kisses. I also really love food but I need to learn some table manners in my new home. I am a rather vocal boy, as I whine at times, but with reassurance I stop. I love food so training is easy for me.

And now a few words from my foster family:
Oscar arrived with some anxiety-related issues from lack of exercise and a lack of healthy boundaries. He is now thriving in his foster home with all his dog friends and two walks every day. Oscar is being trained and should have a fenced yard or long leash for recall so he can run off-leash safely and burn off more energy. Being a dachshund, he has some “Dachshund deafness” when it comes to getting his attention if he is sidetracked with the distractions outside! He is a smart dog who learns fast and loves to please his humans.
