Oscar is an easy and pleasant dog to have around. He is mildly affectionate, preferring to be near his caretaker even for lengthy periods, but he’s not a lap dog and rarely gives licks. He desires to sleep with his caretaker and prefers not be crated. He gets along very well with other dogs and other dogs readily accept him. He shows no aggression to other people unless they intrude on his property without permission. He is more intelligent than average and understands quickly. He doesn’t seem to have been obedience trained, but he should be easy to train. He accepts treats as a training reward but doesn’t lunge at them. He’s not afraid of new things and is cooperative when being examined or having his harness put on. He likes to go for walks but doesn’t have great stamina as yet especially in the heat of the day. He communicates his needs by barking, pawing, or banging his food bowl on floor -- he’s a little pushy but understands No. He doesn’t bark any more than is normal for a dachshund. His baying bark is unusual. He seems to have been housebroken but has had accidents in his unfamiliar new home. He is willing to walk on wet grass to do his business. He hasn’t been around children or cats while in foster care. In general he makes a great companion.
