Featured Dog

Audrey

Foster home needed

Audrey

Age: 5 years

Breed: Lab X

About me: I came from the streets of Romania before I was captured and put in a shelter there. It’s not a nice place like Oakwood. We were lucky if we even got fed every day, there were definitely no toys or treats. I would probably have died there.

Why I need a Foster Home: I have a limp and so we went to the vets. The x-rays show my left leg is badly deformed and it needs to be removed. I need a home to recuperate in after my operation and to adjust to life as a 3 legged doggy before I can be adopted.

What I’m looking for: I need someone who can care for me after my surgery and get me back on my paws and ready to find my forever home. I need a foster home with no doggies, cats or children under 13years.
