  • Greyhound
  • Male
  • 3 Years Old
  • Cat Workable

Oscar is stunning – he is just far too pretty but he is also loving and friendly. He is just 2 years old and he will suit being an only dog – although he fine with other dogs outside.

He has been cat tested and he is able to live with cats so long as you follow the guidance – Oscar is quite a reserved shy dog until he gets to know you – then he is lovely and cuddly and he loves to watch the television with his family.  He would suit being a more quiet type of home with people who are around for part/most of the day.

He went into a foster home for a couple of weeks over Christmas and this is what his temporary mum had to say about him.

“Oscar was our house guest for Christmas, he was just the loveliest dog. Despite being very timid and frightened of pretty much everything, he walks beautifully on the lead and not interested in other dogs. We walked through Mote Park most days, initially he was nervous around runners and cyclist, after a few days he settled around solo runners although the group run last Saturday worried him. We took him to the beach Christmas day and he loved it.

As a house dog, we had no problems at all, I was advised he wasn’t house trained but he took to using the garden instantly.

Oscar loves his food, he would come and look when we were eating but never tried to steal anything, after a couple of days though, he found the bin and would try and get in it to retrieve scraps.

His bio states laid back and lazy, this is so true, he enjoyed his walks and then quite happy to chill out the rest of the day. He was happy to go in the garden for a wander and stretch but if it was too cold, he needed encouragement.

We loved having him to stay and he’ll be a great family dog and although he’s laid back, he does like having someone around.”

Oscar was registered to race but he only did a couple of trials in 2018 before they decided he was no good.  Like a lot of failed racers he has little experience of life outside the kennel environment so you will need to show him what to do

Oscar has a pet passport.
