    Woof! Are you looking to win an Oscar? You’re in the right place!

    I’ve been in foster care for quite a while patiently waiting for the perfect family. Luckily for me, the loving people of AARCS saved me from a dumpster and I was initially unable to use my hind end. After a long period of rest, recovery, and rehab I’ve regained some mobility in my hind limbs! Aren’t you proud of me?!

    I know what you’re thinking! A puppy with limited mobility in his hind legs must be a lot of work. But guess what? You’re WRONG! I still have some weakness in my hind legs but I love to walk and run, I just do it differently than other pups! I scoot around on slippery floor but on carpet I love to walk. Snow? Oh I LOVE snow! I’m part bunny, don’t cha know? I loving hopping and running through the snow because I can get a good grip. Stairs? Not to worry! I’m a brave boy who will climb anything to get wherever you are! I see the snow is starting to melt and you’re thinking i’m going to drag my bum through all the puddles.. wrong! I run and splash through them instead! I’ll be just as dirty as any other pup you’re lookin at! I’ll let you in on a secret… the bath tub is too slippery for me to jump out of so you have an advantage there!

    When I’m brought into a new home, I may potty inside by accident but keeping me on a schedule helps with this. Within the last few weeks I haven’t made a single accident inside because I know my foster mom’s schedule! If you’ve been following my journey for a while and been thinking about adopting me but worried if my back legs will ever improve, i’m here to tell you that they have! Foster mom says that day by day she sees me getting stronger! Little does she know, I’ve been hitting the gym and working hard on leg days. ;) I even met a friend! Did you see the photos? He’s my new gym buddy. I hold myself up much more than I used to and have become much more independent! I even do water therapy so I can show off my walking skills for you!

    When I first met the resident dog in my foster home, I was very nervous and told him to let me sniff out the place first. Once I was able to calmly greet him, we became the best of friends. Although my best bud and I get along very well in my foster home, I still believe that I would be happiest starting out as the only pup in my furever home so I can get all of the attention!! I am continuing to work on my dog to dog skills but I improve everyday. With the resident dog that is. He’s showing me manners! I would love to find my forever family very soon and get a fresh start to a wonderful life!

    Who wouldn’t want to win an Oscar? ;)

      Oscar has limited mobility in his hind legs and can be dog reactive. He would need a home who can help him work on his social skills and/or a home with a relaxed dog
