Christmas miracle: Dumpster dog now Saint Oscar
By Christen Coulon
Thanks to some hard work from animal rescue agencies and some caring individuals, a dog found near death, in abhorrent conditions is getting a crack at a new life in McNairy County.
The animal, a pure bred and spayed Miniature Schnauzer who has been given the name Saint Oscar, was starved to the point where his ribs were prominently outlined on the outside of his body. He was found in the days leading up to the Christmas weekend in Mississippi inside a plastic bag thrown into a dumpster by a man who was looking for cans that said he heard something moving inside the bag.
