FRIENDS of the Animals is desperate to rehome Oscar, a two-and-a-half year-old collie.

Sadly, no-one has chosen Oscar so far and he is now very urgently in need of a new home.

He loves people but is not so keen on children as he likes a quiet life.

All Oscar needs is a loving home with a bit of space — like all collies, he is energetic and loves his walks.

Although he does like other dogs, Oscar is keeping his paws crossed to be an only dog.
