Oscar's Story...
This pet is a courtesy listing, meaning we cannot provide any information about this pet. We are listing this pet to help someone out. If you are interested you will need to use the contact information below in this bio.

My husband and I found this beautiful dog on Saturday, 11/12/16, wandering around in our neighborhood. We took him in because we didn't want him to get hit (we live off of a busy highway). It appeared to us that he has been out for a while (he's under weight, has fleas, dirty, etc.), so we kept him in our backyard and fed him until our vet opened on Monday.

On Monday, 11/14/16, we took him to the vet (no chip) for an exam and had him groomed. He has an eye ulcer and we purchased an antibiotic ointment for this. His shots and flea/tick/heart worm preventive (he is heart warm negative) are now up to date. The vet thinks he is between 1-2 years old (his teeth look great). Per the vet, he still needs to be neutered and he needs a small eye procedure done (for an inverted eyelid) to keep the ulcers from continuing to happen (but the eye is healing and the ointment keeps him comfortable).

Our best friends wanted to adopt him, but have since discovered that it is not going to work out. He LOVES being outside, but they don't have a lifestyle that can accommodate this. He is going to need a yard to roam and explore. He loves Porter (our Labradoodle) and they got along great, but he did not like the pit bull in the fence next door to him at our friends house. I think it's safe to say that he will probably not get along with overly territorial dogs (?). He also doesn't seem to mind cats. He is going to need practice with the harness and leash (he pulls badly when on the leash). He seems house trained as long as he has access to the yard (he didn't have any accidents in my house when he also had access to the backyard. We also have plenty of food to donate to help feed him. He is very sweet, loves attention, and his tail never stops wagging.

If interested in giving this sweet boy a home, please contact Rosie Cooper-Neary at rosiencooper@gmail.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oscar, a Bogart Boxer/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Bogart, or seeking a Boxer/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Bogart.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bogart already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bogart breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer/American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with Boxer/American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bogart paves the way for another one to be saved.
