The pet of the week is from Salt Lake Animal Services. Oscar, a 4-year-old neutered, white and gray American Pitbull Terrier. He is an independent companion who enjoys doing his own thing. However, he will love you like the family you are and will want to be your best friend once you both come together as partners in crime taking on this adventure together.
Oscar is intelligent and confident. He knows basic commands and is very treat savvy; if you have a treat he will be melted butter in your the palm of your hand. He also enjoys going on walks on a leash and stays at your pace. And don't even worry about him getting along with other dogs, he adores them.
One thing to note is that Oscar is kennel stressed, meaning he will bark when you come close to the kennel. This is not because he is a mean dog or grumpy, it just means he is ready to be let out of the kennel so that he can give you all hugs and kisses you might have missed throughout the day. There is nothing to be terrified about with this loyal terrier.
Oscar, the happy dog, is available to fill the missing piece to your heart at:
