    Story

    Woof! My name is Oscar and I’m the cutest boy in the whole wide world!

    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 love all the hoomans because the hoomans rescued me. 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 love 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!

    Due to the nerve damage sustained I may potty inside by accident but keeping me on a schedule helps with this. I’m hoping my adoptive family will understand that this is something beyond my control. My 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 hold myself up much more than I used to and have become much more independent!

    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. When it comes to accepting ‘friend requests’ from other doggos, I prefer to take my time and check out their profiles first. Are they a give-and-take kinda pup? Do they display good sportsmanship in tug games? Are they going to hoard the treats or share them? Do they know what it means when I tell them I need a break? I have some high standards so it might take a little patience to win me over! I am continuing to work on my dog to dog skills and I am learning everyday with the resident dog here. This week, he’s teaching me about 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? ;)
