Oslo is a wonderful boy who loves to play and cuddles! His favorite toys include tennis balls, tug-of-war, and squeaky stuffed animals. He will bring you his toy of choice, and entice you to play with him. When he finally gets tired, Oslo jumps up in bed and rests until he's ready to go at it again!

This fun-loving boy is housetrained and knows his basic commands (sit, down, and stay). He is relatively good on leash, but could use some additional work for truly smooth sailing. Oslo absolutely LOVES every person he meets, and puts a smile on everyone's face. If you let him, he will cuddle up right next to you all night and even put his face next to yours on your pillow!

Oslo's intentions are to play and have fun, but he would do best with adults and children 10+ since he likes to jump and is a little mouthy. He could do well in an apartment or house, although he does like to look for ways to escape. Overall, Oslo is a happy boy who wants a family of his own.

If you want a playful and loving best friend, come and meet Oslo!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
