Scooter is looking for a forever home. This loving little fellow has had a rough start. After being adopted as a puppy by an older couple he was surrendered at age 3 when they could no longer care for him. He was not socialized and it appears he may have suffered some abuse. He has trust issues and is looking for his forever home with a strong, kind and patient person to be his pack leader. Although this smart little terrier received very little training initially he has made huge strides. He is doing very well on his sit and stay command and is learning, with reminders, how to walk on leash calmly as a vehicle or pedestrian/dog goes by. If you love to walk this little guy will be happy to be your partner; we are walking 4-8 km a day and now that he has been introduced to the lake, we stop several times to cool off and enjoy a swim. He is also learning to enjoy his roller ball and has started to bring it back to play. He is excellent in the house and has never had an accident or chewed anything that wasn’t given to him even when left for a few hours, on days his foster mom goes to work. He does enjoy the comforts of home and regularly an afternoon nap on the sofa.

Scooter requires an experienced, mature home where his space will be respected as you gain his trust. He resource guards food and often his toys. As he gains trust this decreases but additional training with a professional would be beneficial in this area.

This loving little guy really deserves a second chance where he can live a good and safe life with his forever person/people.
