Plenty of Pets

Oscar is a four-year-old boy who is ready for his new home.

He loves camping, going for drives, napping and playing with his rope and ball. He’s good on leash, well behaved in the homes

Oscar is a stocky fellow with short legs and he’s neuteted, microchipped, vaccinated and on parasite preventative.

Oscar is very calm in the home and would probably do best at a home with no other pets, only because he enjoys peace and quiet.  

He has had playdates but when he wants to rest some dogs are too persistent. He enjoyed the company of older calm female dogs the most.

To learn more about Oscar, visit the Good Bones Dog Rescue website or Facebook page or email goodbones.general@gmail.com
