OSO - ID#A205984

My name is Oso and I am a neutered male, white Poodle - Miniature mix.

The shelter staff think I am about 5 years old.

I have been at the shelter since Aug 25, 2017.

This information is less than 1 hour old.
Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Please watch a short video of Oso below:
Oso is in a foster home with a volunteer while he awaits his forever home. He was too stressed by the kennel environment of the
shelter, so we thought it best for him to spend time in a home instead and meet his adopter from there. Oso came to us with a large
wound on his neck, having just been attacked by a large dog. He was very scared and could be defensive to tell us to keep our
distance. However, he has gotten accustomed to being handled by more people and sits next to people he's bonded to for them to pet
him. He is quite the easy walker, in tune with his handler. During a walk at the park, he'd stop and flop down whenever the walker
stopped to sit down.
Since Oso can still be guarded about being touched some ways, his home should be a more mature, quieter one. Another resident dog is
a possibility. Please contact if you are interested in
adopting Oso!
