Meet Oscar

Derpy, dorky, downright adorable Oscar is searching for a fun-loving forever family. This sweet fella was rescued from an overburdened animal control facility in rural Kentucky. His appearance suggests he's a Boxer mix, most likely crossed with a herding breed such as an Aussie, Cattledog, Shepherd, etc. He is estimated to be around 2 years of age and weighs 45 pounds, a fantastic medium size. Oscar is an absolute hoot and is the life of the party wherever he goes. He exhibits the boisterous, enthusiastic, clownish personality that Boxers are known for, and he would love to find guardians who are just as adventurous, energetic, and goofy as he is. Oscar has yet to meet a stranger and greets every human and canine he meets as a long-lost friend. He's a happy, social dog who always has a smile on his face. His zest for life is contagious, and it's hard to be in a bad mood in the presence of this goof. It appears he has not had much formal training in the past and can still be a bit rambunctious and mouthy when excited, so homes with older children who will not be knocked over or overwhelmed by his exuberant greetings will be the best match for him. Oscar's ideal home will be with guardians who can help him work on his manners and some basic obedience, as well as guardians who can provide him with lots of exercise and playtime throughout the day. A sense of humor is also necessary because this guy loves making his humans laugh. He is being fostered in a home with several other dogs and gets along well with his housemates. He is crate-trained and does very well with his housebreaking when kept on a regular schedule. Oscar is neutered, microchipped, up-to-date with age-appropriate vaccines, and started on flea and heartworm prevention. Oscar is currently in a foster home in Chicago and can be seen by appointment only after an application has been submitted and approved. For more information or an application, please email or visit
