bounced through at least three households in his 10 years
before ending up at the sanctuary. He came to us from a family
that had given up on him. Citing behavioral issues
accidents in the house, frequent throwing up, perceived aggression
towards small children the parents decided it was time
to surrender the dog to a shelter.
Knowing that an old dog with behavioral issues would probably
not fare well at a traditional shelter, they searched for
an alternative and eventually found us.
We havent found any problems with this tiny, 11-pound
dog. No accidents, no aggression. The throwing up was due
to serious dental disease and rotten teeth, which our vets
took care of right away.
He loves to stand next to the big dogs when they play and
roughhouse, constantly barking encouragement. When the other
dogs take off across the paddock, Oscar races along behind
on his little legs, trying to keep up.
It may have taken him most of his life to get here, but Oscars
finally home for good.
