Oscar came to us as a stray and was never claimed. He was so nervous upon arrival at the rescue but soon recognised kennel staff made friends.
He is a dinky Staffy, very handsome and sweet! However, he is still nervous and insecure around strangers. The chaos surrounding kennel life does nothing to help an insecure dog and we feel Oscar would make fast progress trusting his new family in a loving home. Due to his nervous nature, we would like his new home to visit several times to walk him and build up a bond before adopting him.
We would like an adult only home for Oscar, with no children planned for the future and no visiting children. He needs someone with experience of nervous rescue dogs and someone sensible that will listen to the advice kennel staff give with regards to his personality. He may be best suited to a single man, someone with a gentle approach to dogs. He needs a home with very settled circumstances, that are unlikely to change in the future. Oscar will need someone home for most of the day. He is not good with other dogs so he will need to be walked at quiet times and in quiet areas.
One of our receptionists has spent a lot of time building a special bond with Oscar and now they absolutely adore each other. Oscar's body language is completely different around this person, he truly trusts him and feels at ease in his company. He takes Oscar home whenever he can to give him a break from kennels and he really is a different dog away from here. Sadly, he is not in a position to adopt him however this insight into an ordinary life gives us hope for Oscar. In the home Oscar is a wonderful companion, he is clean and well behaved.
Oscar needs a home that will listen to all our advice about his little ways. If he is not happy to do something he needs space and understanding. His body language is easy to read and it is important as with all dogs that this is understood and respected. He would benefit from someone willing to work with our behaviourist.
Oscar is a lovely boy and in the right home with the right person he will make a gorgeous companion.
