  4. Are you looking for a dog who knows how to sit, who can wait at doorways, who is comfortable sleeping 23.5/24 hours a day, all the while making sure no one breaks into your home? Oscar's your man.
  5. Do you want a dog who won't chew up your furniture, pee all over your house, bark all day, or constantly shove a toy in your face? Oscar's your man.

Oscar loves mornings! Even though he gets excited, he is always gentle with us and never jumps, though he may tap dance ;) !

Oscar has learned he needs to sit and wait until he comes out of his crate or goes through a doorway. Even though he can definitely muscle his way through life, he knows being a gentleman is much better! He'll tap dance when he gets excited but won't come out until released!

Oscar's favorite pastime is sleeping. He's really, really good at it!

All the reasons why you should adopt Oscar wrapped in an adorable new package!

"Hi, I'm Oscar! I am a mature, easy-going fella. I'm in a foster home right now and am learning all kinds of awesome things like walking nicely on leash, waiting to go through doorways, snuggling gently, laying down, and shaking paws!

My favorite things in life are going for leisurely strolls, chewing on antlers, and sitting nicely for treats. I like being outside and enjoy feeling the sunshine on my face.

If you're looking for a dog who doesn't need much, then I'm your man! Just love me forever, feed me every day, and give me a soft place to rest my head at night and I'll be the happiest pup in the world!

Because I'm in a foster home, you won't find me at the shelter. To meet me, please contact BARCS at foster@baltimoreanimalshelter.org or my foster family at info@kaisercanine.com. I can't wait to meet you!"
