Pet of the Week: Oshie

Meet Oshie, a brown and white Pit Bull mix available for adoption locally.

Here’s what his friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have to say:

Oshie is smiley, sweet and loves naps!

Oshie loves playing with all kinds of toys and when he’s not playing he’s sleeping. He is such a cuddle bug! He doesn’t like to be surprised, so slow movements are a must. But once he is comfortable he loves all the love he can get.

Oshie likes treats and knows “sit” and “come.” As for exercise, he’s mostly a lazy pup with some spurts of energy. He gets a little excited when he sees birds and squirrels, but is overall good on the leash.

Oshie is crate trained, and can be trusted alone in the home while his family is at work as long as he’s in the crate. He has had no accidents in his foster mom’s house and sleeps through the night in bed with her.

He has been joining doggie playgroups while at Lost Dog and has a great time! He does play rough and it is good to keep a close eye on him. Still, Oshie would likely do best in an adults-only home where he can be the only dog so that his family can give him all the undivided attention he deserves.

Come meet this love bug today!
