Arrival Story:
I found Oscar! He was a full-grown stray wandering the USC campus (Los Angeles) looking for food.

Oscar was starving, dehydrated, tick-infested... not in good shape... and many signs of abuse and neglect. However, Oscar overcame all his past difficulties and is now a healthy, happy, well-adjusted dog. Oscar is affectionate, fiercely loyal, intelligent and inherently calm & gentle. I am forever grateful!

Forums Motto:
I am not a pig.

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis

Oscar is my 1st dog and I found him as a full-grown stray. I was not a "dog person, " had no special training, and did not even know he was a pitbull! It was astounding that this intelligent, loving, gentle dog was the same breed so continuously maligned and persecuted by media and discriminatory laws and practices. So much untrue sensationalism -- forging ignorance, fear-mongering, and harmful stereotypes. It breaks my heart to think of all the other "Oscars" out there who do not get a chance.

Stem Cell Therapy

Oscar is scheduled for stem cell therapy on May 6, 2009. He is 12 y/o now and has severe arthritis in his elbows, knees and hips. We are very hopeful as there's been a lot of positive press and outcomes reported w. this therapy -- high success rate, no side effects, long lasting, and of course, would negate (or reduce) the chronic use of NSAIDs or other drugs. Of course, we are also anxious as we do not know anyone who has done this relatively new procedure for dogs.

We searched through Dogster, but could not find any first hand accounts! Hopefully, we will be a success story. So, if anyone is considering this procedure for their own dog and would like a first hand account, I would be happy to impart any helpful info I can. We reside in Orange County, Southern California.

Oscar has just been choosen for the 2008, "Good Dogs," Anti-BSL Calendar -- he's the cover dog for the large sized edition! I certainly don't mind plugging these great calendars because it is my understanding that a percentage of the proceeds will directly benefit the anti-BSL cause!

Sold at CafePress:

Good Anti-BSL Organization

For a wonderful and dedicated anti-BSL organization, please check out:


They are the ones behind the annual, multi-city, LUV-A-BULLY Marches promoting positive breed image and fighting against BSL.

Started by local (Brea, CA) veterinarian, Paula Terifaj, Roverlution is a completely grass roots movement made up of dog owners who are against discriminatory laws and practices.
