Story
Oscar is the sweetest and kindest soul, He is OLD. There's no other way to describe him, His skin is in rough shape, bumpy and has rough patches, it looks like he has had some grooming in the past, but there's not been attention to flea treatment or actual bathing. His nails were far too long for comfort. He was very dirty when he came to us. Oscar was very sweet and gentle in spite of this. Noting this, we can say that Oscar likes a soft bed, good food, (and he's very thin), and his own space. He will give a little low growl to let you know that he likes to lay quietly right where he is. Ideally, we could see Oscar in a home that understands he needs patience, love, and a soft place to lay, in a calm and quiet environment. Oscar can't see well, probably can't hear great. He is in line for a vet exam and hopefully we will be able to get his remaining teeth cared for. We know that Oscar is at least 14 years old because he came to Rescue with a microchip that was placed 14 years ago. There was no contact information with the chip. Sadly, an owner couldn't be identified. We are hoping to give this elderly guy a gentle loving here on out home. He deserves this.

Story
I sure am cute, but I'm a ball of energy and natural instincts! I need to get my energy out and will want to play, cuddle, scratch, and dig. Puppies will naturally jump, wrestle, and want to put things in their mouth. But if you stick with me, we'll be best friends forever! What you put into me is what you'll get out!
