Missy and Oscar are a mother-son bonded pair. Oscar is quite the clown and Missy is a little more serious as it is quite a job keeping Oscar out of trouble! As all rescue dogs do, they have a sad story. Their owner became homeless and had to give them up when Oscar became sick with pneumonia and she couldn't care for him. He has long since recovered from his ordeal and is now ready for his forever home with Missy and his ball which he loves to play with! They are both sweet loving dogs. They love attention and to be held and petted. They can be nervous around strangers in their environment and need a short time to adjust. They are pretty consistent going potty outside. Both need to go when they wake up and Oscar will need to go right after he eats. No problems with the crate and they love going for walks so an active adopter would be great. Both are generally very friendly but Oscar is somewhat fearful, so Missy watches protectively over him. They are a great pair for the true doxie connoisseur. They do need a fenced yard. ****Applicant should be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Missy and Oscar.****
