Oscar was found by one of our volunteers on the streets of Turkey - he was so friendly to everyone who passed him, begging "please take me home". You could tell he was a prince of a family before and he missed his old days. He had wounds on his body that tell he was being shot at with a pellet gun on the street. Then the volunteer received threats from locals that they were going to poison Oscar or the city would bring him to shelter, both terrible fates for any Turkish street dog. That is when we heard about his story and with the help of our volunteer, transferred him to our safe and trusted boarding facility in Istanbul. He is now safe off the street and looking for a family that will never give up on him again.

Our dogs are tested with children and cats when possible. Due to location and circumstances this information it is not always available quickly. If a test is not listed on your dog of interest, we will discuss this during the adoption interview process. We cannot promise the relationship of any rescued animal with your current animals or family members.
