It’s a Pug Life for Oscar, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. Oscar is an adult Pug from Omaha, NE. He is already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Oscar’s Story:

Hi, I’m Oscar! I am 9 years young and my foster mom thinks I’d be a great fit with a lot of homes! In my foster home there are two kids a girl who is 10 and a boy who is 7, and boy do I love them! When they start petting me I get excited and start rolling around and brushing up against them. I love being petted and belly rubs. Occasionally I like to sing or talk to you. My foster family is working with me so I can sing and talk at more appropriate times. I have three other pugs in my foster home I like them but would be just fine in a home without as I don’t interact with them much. I like to sleep and cuddle a lot. When your feet are propped up I love to run underneath them. My tongue hangs out all the time so I eat soft food or small kibble. My foster family also thinks I don’t have the best hearing as I don’t respond to verbal cues; but do respond well with physical cues. Also, I love walks and am great on a leash. Hopefully I’ll find my furever home soon so I can enjoy lots of walks with my furever family in the nice fall weather coming up.
