My Story

Date into Rescue: 01/30/2019

Reason for being in rescue: Oscar was surrendered by his owners to a shelter in NC because he was "old". CPR pulled him from the local shelter.

Special Needs: Oscar has bilateral cataracts and is vision impaired.

What kind of home would be best for me: Oscar needs a home where he will be the only dog and can be the king of the castle. He is very sweet toward humans but does not prefer dogs or cats. This boy wants nothing more than a lap to sit in!

What is my personality like: At 7.5 years "old", Oscar has a lot of life and love to give. He can be tentative at first, but really just wants people. Oscar is vision impaired which makes unfamiliar people or situations more difficult for him. He has an old soul and is really well-suited for a quiet lifestyle.

How do I act when I first meet new people: A little shy but friendly

Tips and Tidbits: When Oscar came to us, he was a little nippy due to vision impairment. Once he was comfortable he has shown no signs of aggression and is a sweet boy.

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
