Meet Oscar! This handsome guy is a 2 year old  chihuahua/terrier mix. Oscar weighs 15 pounds.

Oscar came to VIP Rescue from a hoarding situation where 70 plus pups were housed outside in pens and small fenced in areas. Despite the horrible conditions he previously lived in, Oscar is adjusting incredibly well in his foster home and is now seeking a home to call his own. 

Since arriving at VIP Rescue, Oscar has absolutely thrived learning the ins and outs of being an indoor dog. For example, we do not think he had ever been on a leash. Oscar now asks to go for walks and is advancing quickly with his leash manners and housebreaking skills. We do not think Oscar ever had the luxury of a bed or a couch. They are now his favorite places to rest. We do not think he had much human interaction in his prior world. He now seeks out affection from his foster. Truth is we do not think Oscar had much in his prior life, and while there is still lots to introduce him to, he has shown he is ready and excited to live life to its fullest! 

Oscar can be a little shy when you first meet him, but he warms up quickly. He is affectionate and cuddle time with his foster mom has become a favorite pastime. He is playful and loves toys. 

Oscar is great with other small to medium sized friendly dogs. He would do fine in a home as a single dog, or as an addition to a home that already has a dog. If you already have a dog, a meet and greet is required. 

Oscar has not been cat or kid tested, therefore, no cats and kids 12+ only please. We will update his profile if we learn otherwise. 

Oscar is crate trained and is not an excessive barker. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and on monthly flea and heartworm preventative.
