Description: 
See Little O's Homepage Please contact Doug or Diane for more information about this pet. Little O aka Oscar is a delightful young man. When he was a puppy his owners severely broke his back legs. The vet put permanent pins in his legs so he could walk, he doesn't walk normally but he can walk, sometimes even runs by bunny hopping with his back legs. A wonderful man took Oscar in and raised him. Un fortunately this wonderful man died in July. His nieces tried to give Oscar a safe home but one home has two big dogs and Oscar did not like them, another home had four small children and lots of stairs so was not a good place for a dog with pins in his legs. The family is trusting DDR to find a good safe home for Oscar, he just wants another man to love him and care for him as his previous owner did. Can you be that special someone to keep Oscar safe and well loved? Oscar cannot do stairs, we carry him up and down, we've tried a ramp but he is not steady enough on it, when he goes up the ramp his back legs drag somewhat since he can't bend his legs when he walks. He insists on sleeping at the end of the bed and most of the time wants to sit on the couch next to Doug.
