Oscar arrived at NCCR as a local stray on New Year’s Eve, but was unclaimed by his owner. He is a senior Chihuahua mix, guessed to be 10-12 years old. Typical of his breed, Oscar loves to burrow into his bed and blankets for a cozy nap. He enjoys petting and can be picked up. Oscar arrived with an infection in his mouth that he had obviously had for a while, but he has been given antibiotics and will soon receive a dental cleaning and be neutered on February 14th and then ready for a home! He would prefer a home without any small children. His foster mom says he loves to be held, likes dogs and cats and sleeps quietly all night in his crate.  If you’re looking for a low-energy small dog who needs some love and attention, give Oscar a look!

If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an  Adoption Application.  *After you have completed your application, you will get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you.   If you have a question, please email your question to adoptions@caninerescue.org. It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs. Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application. Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.

Oscar is kindly sponsored by , Suzanne, Tillie Mae and Mimzie in memory of Bron Bron, Dave and Nancy Nuzzo, Lisa and Jason Weaver, Dawn Tunstall and Mark Zafuto and by Dorinda White in honor of Dan and Amy Courtine and in memory of Holly. Thank you!
