MSPCA hopes to find home for dog found in dumpster
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Veterinarians are hoping to find a good home for a dog that was found in a dumpster.
A Good Samaritan rescued the pup named Oscar from the trash in Barnstable.
The seven-week-old puppy had a broken jaw, which likely happened when he was thrown into the dumpster.
Despite the painful injury, he wanted to play and cuddle with the veterinarians now taking care of him.
"A Good Samaritan brought him into our Cape shelter. They did not have a foster home available to bottle feed and care for his injuries, so they called us up and I was the first one to step forward and say I would do everything for him," said Andrea Bessler, veterinary technician.
Oscar's jaw is healing well. He has been neutered and is up to date on his shots.
The Jamaica Plain MSPCA is now hoping to find a good home for the dog.
