Hi there. My name is Oscar and I am one lucky dog. I was on death row at a county shelter in San Antonio, Texas, with only a few hours to live, when I was saved by a nice lady. She saw my picture online and decided to help me find a forever home. Until that point, I had a really hard life and never felt love from anyone. I was found as a stray on the streets and would up in a scary shelter. When my time was almost up, I was swept away to safety and now I have a second chance at a real life. My new foster mom lives in Houston so some nice ladies met halfway to move me to my new foster home. When I got there all of my ribs showed and I barely had any energy – I didn’t play or run and was doing good to move slowly through my new surroundings until I gained more strength. I didn’t know what toys were, didn’t know that treats and bones could ever be so delicious, and I was scared of everything. Since then I have really come out of my shell and I am learning how to be a good dog. My mom feeds me lots of healthy food, treats and vitamins. I’ve gained a few pounds in my foster home and it’s really fun there. I went to the vet and got all of my shots, microchipped, and neutered (let’s not talk about THAT part anymore). I stay in a crate while my mom is gone and I sleep in her room with my other dog friends at night. I like every dog I meet and all I want to do is play all day. I love spending time outside in the sun and playing chase with my dog siblings – I carry toys all over my yard and love when they run after me. I also love to roll in the grass to make my mom laugh at me. I’ve learned what it’s like to have a real home with people that love me. I’m pretty famous for my perky ears and have quite a following on Facebook since I was rescued. My mom says she will miss me but that I am ready for my very own forever home. I would be a good “only” dog as long as my owners understand that I am young and I like to play and need things to keep my attention. It would also be fun for me to have another dog to play with and I even like kids. I try to be as gentle as I can with them and will need help perfecting my doggie manners as I move into a permanent home. I love to go on walks and take car rides and I love the dogpark too. Who knew there was a whole park JUST for DOGS? Do I sound like a good fit for you? If so please contact my foster mom: Sarah Magill, firstname.lastname@example.org.
