Meet Oswald! 

Oswald is sweet silly 1 year old Australian Shepherd mix looking for a mildly active home. He loves to play and is very gentle with other dogs. Prefers less pushy playmates. Calm with a natural off switch, very gentle and respectful of your personal space. He over come many set backs as a puppy can came out as a true survivor ready to take on the world. 

He knows sit, down, stay, leave it, place, and has leash walking skills. He pulls lightly sometimes, but otherwise walks very well. Loves older kiddos. He will need time to be slowly introduced to new environments. He is shy and needs a 2 - 3 day warm up period where her can chill in his kennel and get used to the new environment and sounds. After warming up he is easy to manage and a joy to have in the house.
