Surely you remember Oscar who was being fed by Lynn (UK) who contacted AWL for help because she noticed Oscar was an older gentleman and his eyes looked grey. Mia took him to an eye specialist who is from Napoli, but working at a clinic in Roma. Different examinations were made and to see if there was an infection behind the cornea, a yet more advanced examination had to be made.

Oscar couldn’t be put out on the street again. As an older gentleman we wouldn’t know when or if he would become blind. Trina became his foster mother and she has made beautiful adoption fliers . We wanted to do the eye examination that could tell us more about his sight — and future.

I talked with and made an appointment with Dr Alexandria and Trina brought him there. She is the one taking these lovely pictures, like the one above of Oscar kissing Dr Alexandria.

Ahhhh, lovely drugs kicking in!

Top team Dr Alexandria and Dr Longo always provide excellent treatment. AWL thanks them for helping the strays — giving them a second chance. Trina, you are amazing, working hard to help Oscar to find “the home” and I know you paid for his vaccination and microchip, and driving him to the vet clinic. Lynn for sponsoring with 1/3 for the eye examinations and AWL paid 2/3.

You are wonderful helping the strays and for understanding that with team work we can do magic!

Oscar the "It"


Animals Without Limits is not laying on the sofa, eating Bon-Bons! This morning at 06.30 Oscar’s foster mother Gordana dropped him off at Ylva’s place, and his playmate Wilma.

At 09.00 I escorted him to the vet clinic for castration.

Our happy Amore goof is becoming “it”, just like many of us.

Where are you, Owner?


Day and night we have tried to locate “Oscar” in the system (read about him further down.) His micro-chip number seems to be a big question mark. Since he has the micro-chip, no vet facilities can perform the necessary procedures without approval from his owner. If we can’t find the owner, we can’t get him back to health quickly.

“Oscar” is skin and bones and very weak, which is somewhat strange, considering all the garbage laying around, and many people feeding the strays. He may have a more serious problem, but we can’t even have the diagnosis done without his owner’s approval.

Oscar is a mystery, help me find the owner, so we can start treating him more at the veterinarian.

Give Oscar hope Amore!

Let’s Hope


After many days of working with rescuing strays I promised my dogs that today would be their day. Trooper, our beige Labrador and I need to bond so I thought why not go with me for a walk on the beach?

Trooper is a one year-old loving goof with a lot of energy; and with blue sky and sunshine, a babysitter to Max we went down to the beach.

We had just walked 30 meters when Trooper stops and indicates there is something along a nearby fence.

Of course, I walk over!

It was a terrible view, my hands started to shake. There, half buried in the sand with his head stuck under the fence, was the skinniest Dalmatian I have ever seen. It was just skin and bones! The pictures don’t even begin to show how horrible he looked, wedged under the fence and too exhausted to get free. He was shaking so much and looking at me with his beautiful eyes, begging for kindness.

I could count his ribs, his back hip bones were standing up, he couldn’t walk — that’s how weak he was. I thought that maybe he had his back bones broken?
I called Angie, a Scottish volunteer for Animals Without Limits, and she agreed to meet me for help. I passed Antionetta, the dog-store lady, while I was on my way to drop poor Trooper off at home–so much for our bonding.

Antionetta had a bottom of a cage that we brought with us, and we returned to the beach. Thanks to my wonderful helpers we were able to lift him up on the steel plate with blankets and carry him back to the SUV. Even if the Dalmatian was a skin and bone 20kg, it was heavy walking in the sand. Five men glared at us but no one approached to help.

Off to LegaProAnimale and in the warm SUV and one hour of rest he was able to walk barely, but what a sight! Oscar –working name–so sweet and wanted to cuddle up to me the whole time, his closed mouth was sniffing in my hair. He is the most fantastic, gentle, loving, thankful dog I have met in a long time.

He had an American microchip…..maybe tomorrow we will know more about “Oscar.”

Lets Hope for Amore solution, and Amore recovery!
