Oscar loves other dogs. He's already vaccinated and neutered. He is already house-trained.

Here's what Oscar's friends at My Way Home Dog Rescue think of him:

Oh Oscar! Things have been pretty bumpy since your mom passed away. He was purchased as a puppy with his sister 13 years ago. His mom passed away in early 2019. A few months after his mom passed away he was surrendered to the rescue. We think Oscar was pretty attached to his mom and was not experienced with many others caring for him. His foster home finds him delightful. He likes short walks, fluffy beds, naps, food and treats. He is an old guy who just needs a spot to call his own for the time he has left. Oscar's perfect home would be a quiet one.

Noelle will get along great with your other dogs and cats. Woofin Palooza, LLC, however, wants to place her in a home without small children. She's vaccinated and spayed. Good news: She is already house-trained.

Noelle's current caretakers say:

Noelle is the love of our rescue. She is amazing. She came to us several months ago with a huge hole in her skull from a hammer. You could feel her brain. It was nothing short of a miracle that she is alive today. The trauma has left its mark though, she has a traumatic brain injury. The symptoms of this is that her hand eye coordination is off, not real bad, she runs and plays like no ones business but you can tell her gait is off. She also has trouble with new situations, like being shown for adoption. It takes her some time to feel comfortable. She also has trouble walking on a leash, her foster has several acres so she get to run and play off leash all day, her recall is excellent. She loves sleeping right next to you on the bed and has no trouble jumping up or down from it.
