Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

Oscar the Dachshund mix was picked up in New York City. For unknown reasons, his back legs were paralyzed. Because it's so hard to re-home a special needs dog, he was placed on death row for dogs. Thankfully, a group named Urgent Part 2 saw Oscar's story. They posted his info to its network and NY Pet-I-Care responded by adopting the little dog, giving him a new forever home.

Because he was paralyzed, when Oscar was picked up by a shelter he was put on death row.

Lucky, a group of heroes saved him and placed him in a new home.

He is happy as can be and improves the lives of others, even as a special needs dog.

Oscar proves that even though he has special needs (and probably isn't what people imagine when they think of getting a new pet) he is a lovable, amazing part of someone's life. Don't judge a book (or dog) by its cover. Source
