Hound / Saint Bernard Mix
Hiking partner wanted! Meet Oscar, a big loveable goof who loves toys, walks and is a big, happy teddy bear! He LOVES people & other dogs, and he is definitely not a grouch!!!
Oscar is about 5 years old, 88 pounds and a Hound/Saint Bernard mix with a beautiful caramel coat. He is pure happiness! He entertains himself by tossing his toys in the air but is also happy to snuggle and cuddle. He has a strong prey drive so a home without cats is recommended.
Oscar hasn’t had an easy start to life and has been waiting for almost 4 years to find his forever home. In 2018, he was transported from Gwinnett Animal Shelter to a rescue in West Virginia where it was believed he'd be adopted. However, 3 years later, the rescue was raided, Oscar was still there, and the dogs were living in filth, confined to cages, and malnourished. Oscar was returned to the Gwinnett Animal Shelter where he waited for 200 days before BarkVille heard his story, pulled him out of the shelter, and placed him in a wonderful foster home. What an amazing wonder it would be for Oscar to finally find his forever home after 4 long years of waiting!
Oscar is a calm, mellow, inquisitive boy with so much love to give! He has good leash manners, knows basic commands, and loves to cuddle & get belly scratches! He would thrive in a home with an active person/family. He is housebroken, crate trained, neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped!
