Facts about Oscar

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Dachshund Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
**Oscar is currently being fostered in Houston. His adoption will be long-distance one, meaning that meeting him in person prior to his adoption will not be possible. His adoption fee is $500USD, which covers his flight to his new home and vetting appropriate to his age. He is fully vetted and healthy. Unfortunately, because the transport and care of the dogs is expensive, the adoption fee is non-negotiable.**

Oscar came to us as so many of our dogs do, he crossed the path of one of our fosters while running alone in the streets. We were so sure that he would have a family scouring the planet looking for him, look at this face! But, sadly, nobody came for him, so it’s time to find him a forever family!
Oscar is an 3-year old Chi-Weenie mix. He is roughly 15 pounds and fully grown. He is a medium level activity boy, so he would be fine living an apartment or condo situation. Even though he is small, it is important that his adoptive family be committed to proper daily exercise and socialization.

Oscar currently lives with other dogs and does great with all of them. He loves to run and play with other dogs, but would be fine as a solo dog. He has met and done fine with cats, but does not currently live with cats so he would need a proper introduction to them.

He has also met kids and was fantastic with them, but he does not currently live with children. Given his age and general personality, we think he’d be fine being placed in a home with children who have been taught how to be respectful of animals.

Oscar has done really well learning and adapting to his foster home, but a new family will be an adjustment for him. Oscar will be best suited family for a family that understands that dogs can take time to acclimate to their new homes - which will likely include having accidents, crying in their kennel, and chewing on things they are not supposed to.

We expect our dogs to be adopted by families who plan to keep them as indoor pets and part of the family. We do not adopt to families who plan to keep dogs outside unattended for an extended period of time, for example the entire workday.

Oscar is fully vetted (vaccinations, neuter, and microchipped). He does not have any known health or allergy issues. Unfortunately, because Oscar was previously not well cared for, he is heartworm positive. He has been started on treatment and the rescue will provide the medication he needs to complete his treatment protocol. He is healthy and will have no long term health effects as long as he is given his medication on time each month.

About Reggie's Friends - San Francisco

About Our Rescue Group...

Reggie’s Friends was founded out of our love for helping dogs. Living in a city of 1.2 million homeless animals, there was rarely a day when we didn’t see a dog in need of help. Instead of just wanting to do something, we figured out how to do something! Reggie’s Friends is dedicated to the health and welfare of dogs in and around the greater Houston, TX area. We focus our attention on street dogs and shelter cases that other rescues may not have the resources for. We live and love by our motto Street Life To Sweet Life.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in our adoption process is to fill out an application. This can be done via our website at the following link: https://reggiesfriends.org/adoptables/

Our team will then review the application, contact references, perform a vet-check, and request photos of the common areas of the house and yard that serve in lieu of a home visit.

Following the completion of the application, we set up video chats either through Skype or Facetime between the foster and adoptive families.

Our adoption fee is $500USD, which includes the cost of transport and any relevant vet care appropriate to their age. Dogs flying into Canada are subject to an additional ~$125 in custom's fees. These fees are for customs and not related to the rescue or its expenses.

The application process generally takes between 5-7 days as all volunteers also have full time jobs and families.
