Unfortunately, Scotch seems to have had a rough start. He came to us as a shelter stray that was in pretty bad shape - BUT with a thyroid test, Thyrozine twice a day and lots of TLC that is all behind him. He is now a handsome boy and all his hair has filled back in. We do not know any of his past. He can be shy to start but comes around. He keeps to himself a lot, BUT loves meal time. He dances around in delight while his meals are prepared. He is fine with the other small dogs in his foster home but really does not have a lot of patients for the big dogs. He has met the kitty’s but really cannot be trusted with them.
Scotch is an extra special boy who deserves that extra special home. Once he trusts you, you will have a friend FUREVER!
