Dog of the Week: Oscar is a Real Charmer


By Agrippina Fadel

A happy-go-lucky American Staffordshire Terrier is looking for his new best friend.

According to Broward County Animal Care,  Oscar is a real charmer and he knows it. This black and white pup is about 5 years old and weighs 62 pounds. He had been at the shelter for a month.

Oscar is a super sweet fellow who loves to get belly rubs. He is very playful and will sit for treats. Always game for a run or a round or tag-of-war, this dog will be a perfect companion for a family with an active lifestyle.


Like many other large dogs at the Broward Animal Care and Adoption Center, Oscar needs a break from the kennels. The shelter is running 20 dogs over capacity and needs the public to come out and adopt or foster pets.
