Scooter came our way when a young person felt they simply didn’t have the ability to care for a dog like they had hoped – they knew in their gut that Scooter deserved better then they could offer. Scooter  loves food and affection more than anything. His favorite playtime game is tug of war and he looks for any opportunity to cuddle. Scooter doesn’t mind walking by other dogs, but he doesn’t want to play with them. All Scooter wants is to just be BFFs with his people. He wants to chase cats, so he can’t share a home with them unfortunately. After spending lots of time with him, we feel he would be good with dog-savvy older kids, no toddlers as Scooter would adore a calm home. He has already had way too much change in his life so far and now clearly values routine – he is a total homebody and couch potato. He is NOT protective or territorial, he would welcome anyone into your home with a full-body tail wag. He would be great for a person, or family, seeking a companion dog to love them unconditionally.
