Video: Oscar The Three-Legged Pooch Caught Stealing Dog Food From Store

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A crafty three-legged dog has become a star in New Zealand after being filmed stealing pet food from a shop. The 10 year-old German short-haired pointer, named Oscar, was caught in the act by the store`s security camera."


USA Today

Oscar`s family is on vacation and they left him in the care of relatives, but the smart three-legged pooch escaped and started a life of crime.

Oscar is temporarily being kept at the pound, but he will be returned to his owners when they return from vacation.

Oscar didn`t diddly-daddle around the store; once he had the roll of sausage in his mouth he made a beeline for the exit.

Oscar has become a huge star in New Zealand, and I wouldn`t be surprised if he becomes a spokespooch for a dog food company.

Oscar is an inspiration for disabled canines and humans; he hasn`t let his disability slow him down at all.
