Oscar was devastated when Dexter passed away suddenly after a serious illness. There was a huge void in his life that he wasn’t able to fill.
Oscar’s family was required to acknowledge the tangible effects of Dexter’s demise on the cat’s health. Oscar’s battle with Inflammatory Bowel Illness (IBD) returned with a revenge and his health was soon on a sharp decrease, all because he missed his doggie friend too much and was emotionally stressed at all times. Seeing Oscar’s fading will to live, his family contemplated adopting a brand-new furry companion.
That’s when they heard about Jude, a frail Pit Bull pup with juvenile bone disease. Jude was blind and had spinal deformities, so the family adopted him in hopes of giving him a better life.
Jude was a master navigator and a master of life, even though he was physically challenged. With his happy-go-lucky and always-on-the-move character, it wasn’t long before Oscar started to notice him.
While Jude was an absolute goofball with other dogs, he in some way knew the depressed little Oscar was suffering a various type of pain. He not only accepted the cat with his comforting love, but gradually enabled him to damage free from the shackles of his overwhelming grief.
As of today, Jude has been in Oscar’s life for more than 6 months, and the two have truly become each other’s sanctuary. How touching!
He has certainly inspired everybody with a rare perspective about living life to the fullest, despite all odds!
