** ALL ABOUT OSCAR & PRISSY **
Info from the pound :
Approx Age: 3 years
Approx Weight: 8-10 pounds
Good w/ other dogs: yes
Good w/ cats: Not yet been tested
Housebroken: appears to be !
Other Info: Prissy and Oscar are the cutest little duo ever. They came to us from another shelter where there was no room for them, and we were so excited to be able to offer them a second chance for love.
Prissy and Oscar are a bonded pair and absolutely adore each other. We have promised to keep them together, and we really feel that they would mourn if separated.
Prissy is a little social butterfly and makes friends wherever she goes. She is outgoing and bouncy and loves to be held.
Oscar has a very different personality and, while just as sweet, is absolutely terrified here at the shelter and takes a while to trust new people. He looks to Prissy for comfort and tries to protect her from people at the same time.
Although he takes a while to warm up, once Oscar lets you "in" you know you've got a friend for life. Prissy and Oscar are looking for a loving new indoor home where they came be the center of attention. Although they might be fine with other dogs and cats, we do not recommend this pair going to a home with small children due to Oscar being so nervous. Please consider making them a part of your family!!

UPDATE :
Oscar and Prissy came from a high capacity/high kill shelter in Kentucky May 2015

Oscar is a shorthair deerhead chihuahua
Prissy is a longhair deerhead chihuahua
They are now 4 years old

It was quickly clear that Oscar was terrified of being hurt and chose to try to ward off people by barking and trying to nip,
but thankfully he trusted me and he has came a long way

In the meantime if you do not force yourself on him, then he will take treats nicely, and eventually he chooses to come and sit with you, and will give kisses, or lick your fingers

Prissy is a princess and loves to be held/carried

Oscar and Prissy were fixed, had their vaccines, deworm, and microchip, as well as boosters, and heartworm testing on intake

Oscar also had a time in he winter where he lost a pound, which was 20 % of his body weight – we did all kinds of testing, and special food, and he bounced back

The reduced adoption fee of $700 for the pair does not cover the
cost of the intake vetting, let alone food, and meds/diagnostics

We are looking for a quiet home that will let
Oscar warm up on his own time
(no children please)

*** HOW IT WORKS - ADOPTION INFORMATION ****
Please read ** ALL** the information provided below on the process to
save time and facilitate the process in a smooth manner.

The adoption fee does NOT cover the cost of vetting or supplies for these animals - If you cannot afford the adoption fee
(that is a fraction of actual REDUCED VETTING expenses incurred) then you should reconsider adopting.
These animals deserve forever homes, good food, regular vet care, and emergency care as needed.
Pets should never be euthanized by their owners simply based on financial consideration when something goes wrong.

About Adopt-a-Pet/ Petrescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving Discarded Pets Since1998
as well as puppy mill discards, dogs from high kill shelters, and owner surrenders as space allows.
Please note we are located in Grey-Bruce County,
in the area of Lucknow, Ontario
which is south east of Kincardine ,Ontario but have our dogs placed in foster homes
from London area & north to Kitchener area- Cambridge- Woodstock and Guelph areas .

We are a group of committed volunteers led by the tireless efforts of Kathi. Together we transport, foster, contribute, volunteer, donate, support, encourage and generally all around enjoy the fruits of Kathi's labours.

Adopt-a-Pet Pet Rescue is a non profit, private rescue without an office, a shelter building, or paid staff. We are not subsidized or funded by anyone. People often mistake us as being affiliated with the SPCA and other groups. However, we raise all funds ourselves to pay for the care of the animals.

We pick up unclaimed, homeless and discarded animals from pounds and shelters. Some pounds allow the animal extra time to find a home, but if they are unsuccessful, then they call us to take the animal so it is not euthanized. When we have available space we take in owner surrenders and pick up puppy mill dogs who have either outworn their usefulness or who have passed their puppy-cuteness-easy-to-sell date. We We cover hundreds of kilometers from Kincardine to London to Cambridge to Southampton, Ontario Canada. We also try to save the lives of animals who aren't within our area whenever we can - we don't close doors based on geography.

Pre-adoption, we provide above average veterinary care. We spay or neuter, micro-chip, vaccinate, deworm and treat for parasites. If the animal is too young to be fixed at time of adoption we offer a spay or neuter rebate. We provide all necessary emergency care and initial grooming. We buy their food, dog collars and any other necessities.

Each of us have jobs, families and the typical resonsibilities of busy lives. We give of our time, energy and enthusiasm to rescue animals for the same reason Kathi does - anything less is unacceptable to us. When you call or email Adopt-a-Pet Pet Rescue, please be patient with us - we are juggling alot ... and we're glad to do it for the animals.

We are always in need of and welcome help with accepting new fosters- assistance with/ at pet events- great for students needing volunteer hours, putting out fliers, assistance with pet supervision at pet events, Assistance with rescue booth set-up- take down etc...
