Oskar (now August) has been adopted by a loving fur-ever family! He has numerous fur siblings who he absolutely loves already, especially his Frenchie sister. His mama and dad have fallen head over heels for the little man in no time at all and are spoiling him greatly. August is living it up in his new home, playing with all the toys and other dogs. We are so excited for August and his family to live happily ever after with one another!

Little man Oskar is ready to find his forever home!!! This cutie is only 8 months old but has been through some bad gastrointestinal issues during his short life. When Oskar was surrendered to FBV, he had been diagnosed with hookworms and had frequent watery stools. He was surrendered by his owner because she no longer was able to handle a puppy and Oskar’s diarrhea with also having two children.

While in the care of FBV, Oskar’s diarrhea continued despite treatment of the hookworms. He then was diagnosed with Giardia. Despite treatment, again the loose stools continued. Oskar’s foster mom took the little guy to see an Internal Medicine Specialist who ran further testing and determined that he had Salmonella. After 4 weeks of antibiotics, Oskar’s stools have finally improved. However, he still has looser stools when stressed and intermittently experiences vomiting/regurgitation. The vet said the regurgitation/vomiting is common for brachycephalic breeds so this could potentially be an ongoing issue for Oskar. His foster family has been feeding him in an elevated feeder which seems to help the regurgitation. He continues to gain weight and acts like a normal puppy.

Oskar is a very happy puppy. He loves to play…especially with toys that squeak. His favorite toy is a donut that squeaks. He loves to run around the house with it in his mouth squeaking it the entire time. Oskar can definitely be a little mischievous…he loves socks and will find one even when you think you have picked them all up. He loves to grab socks from the laundry room and run down the stairs with them. He also loves to chew on shoes and has ruined two of his foster mama’s shoes. No need to fear though because now the shoes are where he can’t get them!! Oskar is a very smart boy. He knows “sit” and will even “down” on command. His foster family is still working on “leave it” and “drop it,” but he walks very well on leash and is crate trained. Oskar does not need enormous amounts of exercise but when he has his bursts of energy, he needs something to do…either a walk or play session. He loves playing with his foster Frenchie siblings…they will play tug and love to wrestle with each other.

Oskar is only partially housebroken. He does pretty well going in and out of the dog door to potty but still has accidents in the house. This continues to improve but not so much on rainy days. This boy hates the rain and will tip toe through the grass if made to walk out in the rain. He loves the verbal praise and treats he gets when he goes potty outside, though.

Oskar loves bones…any bones!!! He also loves squeaky toys…especially his donut toy. He likes tennis balls but not to fetch…only to chew on, so he does not get these to play with for fear he will eat some of the ball. He does not have any toy or bone aggression, but his foster mom has heard him growl when the resident dogs approach his crate when he is eating. His foster family now does not allow the other dogs to go near his crate if he is still eating.

Oskar would love a home with another dog or more. (We are not sure how he would do in a home with cats and other small animals, but we don’t think he would do well with birds). He loves to play with other dogs and loves to cuddle with his foster dog siblings on the sofa. He also would love a home that spoils him because he is absolutely the most precious boy. He has the cutest little face and eyes that just speak to you. He is a good travel buddy and would not mind taking some trips with his new family. He also would like a home that supplies him with lots of toys…this boy LOVES toys!!! He will need a home that will be okay with his intermittent vomiting.

Because he is only partially housebroken and a puppy, he will require someone to be home all day with him or someone who can provide him a mid-day potty break. He would prefer a fenced yard so he can run around and burn off some of his energy but does okay going out on leash for walks and to potty. He will try to run out of doors so if his forever home does not have a fenced yard, he will definitely need to be leashed before heading outside.

Oskar is quite the character. Here are some funny things he loves to do: he loves to slide his little body down the hill in the backyard of his foster home; he likes to become limp and Slinky-like when you pick him up which is just the oddest thing to his foster mom; he loves to run full speed in and out of the dog door; and he likes to chase toys like a cat does. His foster home even bought him a cat toy that he loves and will chase when you run around the yard with it.

Oskar is such a loving little boy. He really tries to please and loves to cuddle. He is an amazing cuddler!!! Everyone that meets him falls in love and says how precious his little face is. Oskar may always have some GI issues so he will need a family that will be understanding of this and not get upset with him. He is hard to stay upset at anyway (even when he destroys your shoes)because he really does have the most adorable face. He deserves a family that will love him, spoil him and do everything in their power to make his life a happy and healthy one.
