Scooter-ADOPTED!

Scooter is cute 3 year-old guy who looks like a mix of Border Collie and American Eskimo. He came to us from an overcrowded county dog shelter after losing his home because he was harassing chickens. Hard to believe that this gentleman would do that because he’s been so well-mannered in his chicken-free foster home but we are looking to place Scooter in a home where that temptation won’t exist. Scooter does get along well with other dogs but seems to prefer to stay on the sidelines and not join in on games of chase and wrestling. He may do fine as the only dog in the home provided his family can spend lots of time with him. Scooter walks very nicely on a leash so should make a great walking buddy for someone who wants a smaller dog. He also keeps his crate spotless and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Scooter weighs about 28 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Scooter. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
