Kaaz & Oscar - Two Small Dogs with Big Love to Give.........
Susan Daffron talks to Ellen Lockwood from the Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas about two dogs named Kaaz and Oscar. Kaaz is available for adoption and Oscar is in permanent foster care. Although Oscar has found a home, Ellen wanted to share his story because he represents the forgiving nature of the animals you often find in rescue. His story is on the Web site and involves terrible past abuse by a prior owner, which has left him with permanent medical problems. Even after all he has been through, you can see the love in his eyes.
Although Oscar has found a permanent living situation, Kaaz is still looking for a perfect forever home. Kaaz came from a terrible living situation where the other dogs actually died from mistreatment. As the sole survivor, he came into rescue with a severe case of mange, skin infections, and giardia. Although he has been enjoying life in foster care in rescue, his compromised immune system probably also resulted in a case of kidney stones, which required surgery. However, he has been treated at the vet and now has a clean bill of health. He will need to eat a special kidney to reduce the chance of this kidney problem happening again in his future, but he's ready for his new home home. Kaaz is only about 3 years old and has many years of love left to give!
