This is OXFORD

            

Oxford is a Pointer mix and is a happy, well-mannered gentleman. He always has a big smile on his face, especially when he is being petted. His little tongue sticks out and his ears go down; you can tell he is in sheer bliss while being loved!

Oxford is house trained, friendly with other dogs, and wonderful with kids and is so well behaved, he does not need to be crated when left home alone. He is extremely sweet, gentle, and loves to be around people. He will follow you wherever you go and lie down near you wherever you sit.

His best qualities are his positive demeanor and big, happy smile! He has a medium energy level, so a nice walk and a run around the yard will suffice for his activity, no toys necessary. Oxford is awesome on a leash, too. After a little activity, he is content to relax in his big bed during the day.

Oxford needs to be fed twice a day and left upright in his Bailey Chair to digest for 20 minutes. Oxford does very well and is very patient while in his feeding chair. Oxford’s condition requires no medication, other than twice daily Prilosec.

Oxford seems to know he has special needs and he just wants to be loved and accepted. “
