Arrival Story:
Oscar is a MSIR (shibarescue.org) red shiba who we adopted in January of 2003. He had been living in a Chicago apartment and was "chewing" the walls to get out. He's our first dog together and our first rescue. He has a brother Louie, a black/ red asian mix who's also a rescue, but from Humane Society of St. Louis.

Oscar is the three-time "tallest" shiba in the mid-west and currently has had 14 foster brothers and two foster sister; all shiba inus. After an 8 month battle with mast cell tumors Oscar crossed over the bridge in Novemeber. We all miss him very much, but his spirit lives on.

Oscar lost his battle to mast cell cancer on Nov. 29, 2011.
He fought a very hard eight month battle including a surgery to remove the tumor which left him wearing a head cone for his last five months. We miss him dearly and daily see something to remember him.
His shiba sister Leia and brother Louie still miss him so.
Even the behaviors of our latest shiba Niko bring memories of Oscar to our minds.
