Oso is a lively, sweet, playful and versatile dog who's always ready to go adventuring, but is also down for some snuggle time whenever you are. His favorite thing to do is whatever his favorite person is doing, and he's just happy to be included. He will lay on the sofa with you to take a nap and when he's awake, he'll shower you with kisses and little nibbles.

Oso is very treat motivated and knows a few simple commands. He's also house and crate-trained and listens well and will stop whatever he's doing once he hears "no". He also doesn't bark or cry!

One look into Oso's expressive eyes and it's clear he only wants to please his people and be loved in return. He'd love a home with another playful dog and people who love to snuggle and will include him in their activities. If that sounds like yours, come meet this fun guy!
