    Talking Olive has a new rescued brother!

    -oscarporch-jpg-oscartongue-jpg-3babies-jpg-babies-jpg

    Hi Everybody,
    Meet Oscar. He is a 1 1/2 year old boy we just rescued. He has really come along in just the few days that we have had him. He was very fearful and timid initially with lots of marking so he has been in a crate much of the time. He is now earning more time out of the crate. He now acts happy and playful and is very affectionate. He clearly has had no training and likely minimal human interaction other than custodial care. He is underweight but appears healthy. He sees our vet tomorrow for his first check-up. We are very pleased with his progress. He now sometimes responds to basic commands and having far fewer accidents.

    Nina, our 14 yr old lab basically stays away from him because he is too playful for the grandma. Olive was very playful with him initially but he plays more aggressively than she is used to and he does not know how to be around her without constant rough-housing. He is a very high-energy bully. He is either wanting to play, following her or sniffing her so now the two aren't getting along as well because she is starting to snarl. We separate them immediately when we see behavior that we don't like. HE usually gets put in his crate although sometimes she is crated also. We are establishing ourselves as the pack leaders and we do have a trainer coming into our home this week. There's lots of experience and wisdom in this group and I would appreciate any good advice you can offer us.

    Gosh Oscar is gorgeous! My old guy Ace who has since passed also stayed away from Jack, mostly. But then he would go after him and literally try to attack him. Mostly because Jack had so much energy and Ace was getting old, his eyesight was going and he was just protecting himself. You're pack will come to order but it may require some extra watching with Nina. He's so pretty.

    Love his coloring. So pretty! Congratulations! Get an airborne every time you see him marking something, then honk it when you see him lift that leg. JK, JK!!
