Brett Young and his wife, Taylor, became dog parents to Oscar in 2011 after encountering a woman selling dogs at a gas station, as shared with PopCulture.com.
“We actually met a woman at a gas station that was selling a couple tiny, baby, 11 oz puppies and at the time, we had no idea what the breed was or anything,” he recalled. “We just knew he was adorable and that he shouldn’t be sitting in a hot car at a gas station in Los Angeles. So he’s been our little buddy for about seven and a half years now.”
