found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Scrappy is good with other dogs (his current best friend is Jasper), though he can play a little bit roughly and be a little bit dominant at times, so would do best with dogs that are comparable or even a bit larger in size and energy. He currently weighs about 20 pounds, and looks like a GIANT CHIHUAHUA, ha. Our best guess is a chihuahua minpin SOMETHING mix. He is VERY smart, but it appears he hasn't been taught anything - he is about 1 1/2 years old now - so he will want an experienced person who will enjoy the training process with him. He *is* housetrained and his kennel is always clean and tidy! Scrappy should make a great house dog.
He doesn't really understand play like fetch yet, but should pick up skills like that fairly fast; he could be an excellent candidate for agility or frisbee type training. His only real bad habit right now is that he will jump up and nip at your hands to get attention; we don't recommend him for toddlers because of that, but older children should be fine with him and should be able to help with his training. Scrappy is a very affectionate dog who just wants to be loved! He would also appreciate long walks or jogs - he is a mighty dog inside a smallish dog body, and wants lots of exercise and a companion with whom he can really bond.
If the seizure story is true, it is possible he could have more in the future... there is just no way of telling. It is obviously not a common thing right now, since it has been 5 weeks of observation without even ONE seizure... but if they do recur, it is generally a treatable condition, most commonly with daily medication (relatively inexpensive, too).
Scrappy comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.
Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $85; more gratefully accepted!)
Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
