Oscar, the gentle giant is up for adoption

Are you a chill, laid back type of person? Are you looking for a companion of the furry nature?

Meet Oscar, a 7-year-old black and white dog up for adoption at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. This gentle giant is ready for his forever home!

Oscar is a sweet and big boy, weighing about 109 pounds. Oscar is a very easygoing fella that would love a home to lounge around all day in, according to AWLA spokesperson Erin Shackelford.

“It doesn’t take a whole lot to make Oscar happy — he’d love a comfy bed, some tasty treats, and a little walk here and there,” said Shackelford. “While Oscar doesn’t seem to mind other dogs around while he’s out on walks, we do think he needs to be the only dog in the home.”

Oscar is a breeze to walk and is also very good at letting you know when he needs to go outside.

If Oscar is a match for you, be sure to read his entire profile! And to start the adoption process email [email protected] or call 703-746-4774.
