Likes: He likes to have his ears rubbed and groans when you do it..Also likes to have his back scratched by his tail and he'll push himself between your legs so you'll do it!
Pet-Peeves: Hmmm-- pet peeves... I guess when anyone makes the "pssssst" noise.. He doesn't like it and gets right up in your face and puts his nose on your lips so you can't do it anymore..
Favorite Toy: He has a stuffed piggy and a squeaky snowman that he plays with a lot.
Favorite Food: He loves pretty much anything that isn't dogfood..
Favorite Walk: Around the neighborhood and past his "girlfriend's" house..
Arrival Story: We rescued Oscar from an abusive household. The owner's fiance hated him and was mean to him all the time. I found an ad in the paper that said "10 month old Bearded Collie free to a good home". I called that morning-- we went to see him that night and when we walked in the house he cowered behind a chair and shook uncontrollably. I finally got him to come and meet me with a treat and we took him home with us.. Within an hour at our house he was sitting on my husband's lap. The first year or so we had him no one could wear black work boots in our house- he couldn't handle it and hid under the table and growed at the boots until they took them off. I'm assuming the fiance kicked him around a lot with black work boots on..(?) Poor guy. He has come full circle and I couldn't imagine our lives without him now. He is such a sweetheart.
Bio: Oscar has a best buddy named Zoe.. She is our other rescue dog. They have so much fun playing together. They wrestle and play tug-o-war with the toys and chase each other in the backyard. I don't think he'd know what to do without her now!
