Introducing Oscar Wiley III

 His name was "Cotton" in the shelter, which is apropos, since he looks like a big scruffy cotton ball.
They said he was a stray, roaming the streets in a nearby city, which broke my heart.
After much pleading on my part, Mr. A agreed we could adopt him.

~ Introducing Oscar Wiley, III ~
Our 8 month old Maltese mix rescue dog!

Everyone loves him, and he loves everyone!

Even Mr. A loves him, which I knew he would.

He's very good with little girls...

...and big girls with big dogs.

He plays well with his new friends...

...and doesn't mind a bath.

We even took him shopping for mattresses, and he picked the perfect organic cotton mattress!

We wore him out!

I wonder if he realizes how lucky he is to have found a loving home.
But we're the lucky ones!
He is the perfect dog!
Pin It!

Delores, I've been waiting for an update and more photos. What a lucky little guy to be invited home with you! He is so cute and looks as if he feels right at home. I'm so happy that you found this little doggie to call your own. What will you call him? Oscar or Wiley or both. LOL
Keep the photos coming..........Sarah

Delores, I have a purebred Maltese named "Bono" cause he acted like a rock star when he was a puppy. These dogs are wonderful, and I love you for taking Cotton off the streets. He has found the most wonderful home in America from the look of it. Big huge props to you and your family!!!

AWWWW.....This story made me tear up. I had a little maltese for 14 years named Bob. He was the nicest little boy. I miss him so much and your pics reminded me of him. He is sooo lucky you found him and now looks like he is in the best place any doggie could ask for!!!

D, I think the picture of him running in the grass shows he realizes he is a very lucky pup. Love the name Wiley and I can see why you fell in love, xo Kathysue

Danelle said...

BTW..... I forgot to write that he even looks like he is smiling in the second picture. Soooo cute!

He is adorable. So fluffy. it is amazing hw they can adapt. Rescue dogs are the best. We rescued two Springer Spaniels and they have been the greatest.

Seeing how content he is when sleeping and how happy when playing I think YES, he does know how lucky he is to be adopted! That is the magic of rescue dogs... they get it! He is a love for sure. I am so happy y'all found one another to love!!

What a cutie Oscar is. I got all teary eyed reading your post, reminds me of the dogs we rescued. There are no sweeter dogs then the ones from shelters. From one dog lover to another thank you for taking him in and showering him with love. He definitely deserved a nice home like yours.

I don't know which to call "lucky" you or that adorable pup! I think you both are but I think I'm a little happier to know a little stray roaming the streets has a safe and happy home where he will feel the love!

Delores,
I'd say by the contented look on his little face, he knows how lucky he is to have been adopted by you and your family.
He's darling!

Barrett said...

The second picture brought tears to my eyes. He has the look of pure joy!

I would say everyone/dog was blessed by this decision!
God bless those that rescue! Here's to many many happy and healthy years together! (and no chewed up shoes or furniture legs!)

Victoria said...

Oscar Wiley III couldn't possibly be any cuter. You are all lucky to have each other.
XO, Victoria

Melanie said...

What an adorable fur baby! He already looks so happy and is obviously feeling perfectly at home with your family.

zooperson said...

Well, bless his little heart--and yours too. He knows he hit the doggie lottery where you win all the love and caring you could possibly need. Win win situation.
