Dogs, especially older dogs, deserve to live the rest of their lives in peace. They deserve a safe environment full of love before they cross the rainbow bridge, writes dogfull
But not everyone feels that way. Oscar, an elderly Australian Shepherd, was found by the roadside. He suffered alone for three days, ignored as yesterday’s garbage.
No one wanted a 10-year-old mixed breed whose hind legs are collapsing behind him. Thankfully, he was rescued and taken to a vet in Long Beach, California.
He suffers from spinal stenosis, which is a common affliction among Shepherds and their mongrels.
As if abandonment wasn’t hard enough, Oscar was also banished to the shelter. “What an ugly dog,” the shelter staff heard the woman mutter as she passed Oscar.
Claudia Hoffman is campaigning tirelessly for someone to take in the poor senior. Oscar deserves a family in the final few years of his life.
“Nobody is standing in line for this sweet senior. But I’ll keep networking until that special person or special rescue comes along. Oscar is great with people BUT I DO NOT KNOW how he is with other dogs or cats.
