Hi again, it’s me, Oscar!
After surviving parvo and distemper, I’m back at my foster home.  I’ve definitely had my share of challenges so far, but, fingers crossed, I’m through the worst, and it’s only good stuff from now on.
Now I can start thinking about my forever family, so here’s a bit more info to help you decide if I’m the boy for you.
I’m quiet and sweet.  While I will play and romp around with my furry foster sister, I like my quiet time too.  I’m learning that human touch doesn’t always mean medical treatment.  I like cuddles and gentle pets, but I like to come to you when I would like them.  I’m a little timid when anyone tries to catch me.  That’s why I think older kids that could be patient and give me my space would be the best fit for me.  Meeting new people can also be a little stressful.  Slow introductions, and letting me approach you when I’m ready helps me a lot.
I would like to have a dog friend to play with and learn from, but I could be ok if it were just you and me.
I’m good in my crate and was a star student with house training.
In a few weeks, my medical hold will be done, and my neuter and vaccinations can be completed.
If I sound like your guy, please apply to meet me.
I’m really excited to have a happy healthy future with you!




Hi everyone,

After surviving Parvovirus, Oscar and his siblings came down with distemper. Three of the pups died. Oscar, Bruce and Maverick made it through, but distemper is insidious. Symptoms can show up anytime. In fact, Oscar looked happy and energetic, then he developed serious eye and skin lesions and ended up back at Westlock Veterinary Center for the third ( maybe fourth ) time.
Currently Oscar is doing okay. Very tired and not eating very much, but doesn’t seem to be showing any neurological symptoms.

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we may deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
