This butterscotch beauty, his look determined, his eyes bright, seldom stops smiling. After being struck by a car and left battered and broken, the feisty pup fought his way back from the threat of death to the promise of life and all of its possibilities. Aptly named Oakley after the solid strength of the oak, he may have lost a leg in the battle, but his spirit has remained strong as he continues to heal. In fact, nothing holds this determined little dog down or back, as he regains his footing as a regular, rowdy and roguish pup. Playful and curious, happy to chomp on a toy or a flip-flop, Oakley is comfortable with children and gets along with other calm, well-mannered dogs. Although he tires quickly after a romp or a run, his fosters are working to build up his endurance, while teaching him basic obedience, and correcting any jumpy/mouthy behavior he may display. Understandably fearful of cars, he’s slowly and patiently being taught that a car isn’t a frightening thing but a safe place to be. Then, of course, there’s cuddle time, which loving Oakley thoroughly enjoys, when he’s the center of affection and attention. And who can blame him? Soon he’ll be fit enough to find a loving, forever home, where the remarkable journey he’s on can happily continue.

Yum, I found a sandal.
Which was quickly swapped out for an appropriate chew toy.
