Brief Bio: Meet Oscar! Oscar is a loyal and gentle Golden Retriever who spent a sad life on the end of a chain. The only protection from cold he got was a cardboard box that was always filthy and wet. He was forced to endure loneliness and receive virtually no attention at all. Years after living a life of neglect, Oscar’s condition deteriorated. He was matted, covered in ticks; his legs became weak from lack of exercise and years of lying on rough ground.

A kind woman in the neighborhood was shattered by Oscar’s plight, asked the owner if he’d be willing to relinquish Oscar to her for adoption. The owner gave the woman a chilling answer that she could do whatever she wanted with Oscar since he was going to get rid of him. Oscar was taken straight to the vet where he was cleaned up and examined. Poor Oscar’s skin was so traumatized due to long time bacteria trapped in his filthy matted fur resulting infections set in but left untreated. After blood tests he was also diagnosed with Ehrlichia, a tick- borne disease that required a month treatment. From there on, Oscar started his long road to recovery.

We can only imagine the physical discomfort and psychological trauma Oscar had suffered over the years before his rescue. But his friendliness towards everyone never wavered despite the hardships he’s been through. During his recuperation, he won over the hearts of the vets who treated him, volunteers who took care of him, they said he being the sweetest dog they had ever seen. Oscar is well recovery now – his skin infections cleared up, Ehrlichia treated. He is enjoying a life without a chain around his neck at the foster home. He loves all people, dogs , he even befriended every foster cat! He is so grateful for any attention he receives, his tail is always in wagging mode and a sunny smile is always on his beautiful face.

Oscar is ready for a new family. He will make the best companion for someone who will treat him with unconditional love he so deserves. Oscar is patiently waiting for a home to call his own!
