Oscar [ADOPTED JULY 16] is a 3-4 year old, chocolate merle who came to us from an inner city shelter. What a handsome boy he is! At first glance we did not notice that Oscar had something seriously wrong with one eye. He had a severe ulcer. We treated it while waiting for his appointment with the ophthalmologist. He was in tremendous pain but never once did he snap or growl. He was just a little trooper. He is extremely thin which leaves us to believe he had not had the best of care. The ophthalmologist could not save Oscarís eye. The infection had gone all the way into the socket. The eye was removed so Oscar could be pain free. We soon learned that Oscar had a mischievous side and having one eye did not slow him down a bit. Oscar is housetrained.
