About Oswald

Oswald A230138 Oswald is a 5 year old male who came into the shelter on July 19 as a stray. Handling 8/14: Handling 7/25: Handling video: Leash Test: Leash Test: Oswald is so so skinny. In his kennel, he looks like he’s close to giving up on the world too. Humans haven’t been kind too him, but kindness is all he will know going forward. Oswald was hesitant to be leashed and leave the little bit of safeness he found at the shelter. Good for us, he’s small and so is his kennel so he could only head bob so many ways before the leash got on. The feeling Oswald gave off his first few times out was suspicion. He didn’t want to engage and would flinch at the slightest touch, even accidental brushing by. The way to Oswald was through his stomach. He’s all bones but it wasn’t an instant friendship. It took lots of treats and a few days to get Oswald to the point of coming to us and allowing pets. He obviously still has a ways to go to get healthy and happy. We would love to see that journey continue in a home.

Leonardo A228303 Leonardo is a 3 year old male who came into the shelter on 6/3 as a stray. Handling 6/8: Handling: Leash Test: Some dogs come into the shelter and just trust you immediately. This is the case with Leonardo. When we approached his kennel, he immediately stood up and offered his head to be leashed. Leonardo followed us outside without hesitation. He just seems to have a happy joyful disposition and has those eyes, those eyes make a girl’s heart skip a beat! He seems quite young and already such a big boy, but very easy to handle. Leonardo takes treats like a gentleman! He seems to want to be right by our side the whole time that we were outdoors. When we would stop rubbing his sweet head, he would nudge us to restart again. Leonardo did a little exploring around the play yard but he certainly likes to be near humans. Leonardo can be bouncy, especially likes to jump behind his handler as we walk. He seems starved for attention. We can’t imagine someone isn’t looking for this boy, but are continued to be dumbfounded time and time again at the shelter with all amazing dogs come in as “strays“ and nobody, nobody comes for them. Leonardo is looking for a family that will help him grown with continued training and lots of love. show less
