Facts about Oscar

  • Breed: Boston Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Good with Kids: Unknown but not reactive
Good with other dogs: Once he gets acquainted, he's great!
Good with cats: Once he gets acquainted, he's great!
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Good if not left for long periods of time in a crate
Walks Nicely on a leash: Great!
Knows Basic Commands: He knows all the basics!
Energy Level: Medium
Special Needs: Oscar has minor cataracts, a very minor luxating patella that he's already seen a specialists for and they would NOT suggest surgery, just continue being on a hip and joint supplement and one ear that is permanently cocked down from a burst abscess. This did not cause any permanent damage, just needs to be cleaned regularly.

Arrival Story: Waggin' Tails found Oscar at Detroit Animal Care and Control. After meeting and playing with this young old guy, we knew we had to give him a second chance! Unfortunately, Oscar was pretty sick and underweight upon arrival, but after almost 3 months in his foster home receiving lots of care and love, we're thrilled to report he's a healthy, happy and ready for his forever home!

Approximate Age/Weight: 7-9 years / 25 lbs.

Personality: Oscar is a silly, playful and sassy (typical Boston!) bundle of brindle. He loves toys, peanut butter kongs and bully sticks! He loves longs walks, a good game of tug a war and a snuggle. Oscar is a really sweet dog that just wants to please.

Oscar really enjoys time with people (new people included!), makes great eye contact and checks in with his handler on walks. He is a leaner, and will curl into you for some pets. In his current foster home with two other dogs and cats he is not food or toy aggressive. He is bit sassy and will bark to get your attention if he feels you aren't spreadin' the love. He is good on car rides (needs to be secured or he’ll be trying to drive) and at the vet’s office. He is a great sleeper too, right at the bottom of the bed on his own dog bed, be ready for some snoring! Oscar is very treat motivated and still wants to learn.

Forever Home: Oscar would do well in many situations. He would do well as an only dog or with a companion. We would like to see him go to home where you are home more of the day than not and we think Oscar would do best in a home without young children.

About Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit rescue group. Our experienced and dedicated volunteers donate their spare time to rescue, rehabilitate, foster, and re-home all breeds of homeless dogs at risk of being euthanized or sold to research from area and rural kill shelters. We are supported solely through donations and fund-raising efforts. Our volunteers receive no monetary payment for their activities. Instead, their reward is the knowledge that a dog's life has been saved that otherwise would have been lost.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We typically show every Saturday from 12-3 p.m. (please see our website for exact location details). We often have other special events that are listed on our website, as well. Potential adopters can also schedule meetings with the individual dog's foster parent since all of our dogs are in fosters homes and we do not own a shelter.

Our Adoption Process...

We utilize an application process because we have worked hard at nurturing and working with the animals in our care. In order to ensure that these formerly abandoned, neglected and abused animals never find themselves in the shelter/rescue system again, we screen applicants so that the applicant is matched to an animal that is suited to the applicant's lifestyle.

It is our job at Waggin’ Tails not only to find new homes for our animals but to ensure these animals never have an opportunity to breed again. All of Waggin’ Tails dogs will be spayed/neutered at the time of adoption unless the dog is not of age and/or the dog has a medical condition that would prohibit sterilization at the time of adoption. Dogs under 6 months of age and dogs that cannot be sterlilized due to a medical condition will be adopted out on a spay/neuter contract which means the adopter must agree to have the dog sterilized by a specified date.

Adoption Fees
Adult Dogs: $225
Small Breed Dogs: $275
Senior Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months): $250 + $50 refundable Spay/Neuter Deposit

What does the adoption fee Include?
The adoption fees above cover all age-appropriate vaccines; heartworm/fecal test; spay/neuter (unless otherwise stated); and microchipping. When necessary, the dogs have blood panels, dentals, and professional grooming as well. In other words, we do everything necessary for the dog when they come into our care.
