As a rescue, right now it takes Scooter some time to get used to new people, situations and dogs, but once he's comfortable, his tail will go 100 miles an hour, and he'll become affectionate the second he realizes he can trust the humans around him.
He's a well-behaved boy who knows his basic commands, and he's house trained and crate trained, and does pretty well on a leash. Scooter is a sweetheart, but he needs to join a family that will be patient with him; he's not entirely comfortable when new friends and strangers come over, and loud noises bother him. Scooter just needs some time and a secure, stable home environment and we know this adorable boy will relax into the most perfect companion and adventure buddy.
If you are looking for an active companion Scooter is your boy...he is now accepting applications at www.bigfluffydogs.com. Please follow up with an email to email@example.com Scooter is adoptable in NJ, MD, VA, WV, PA and New England.

We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.
