About that: his paperwork lists him as a shih tzu and he may indeed be a larger shih tzu, but some people think that the person who surrendered him didn’t know and that he might be a lhasa apso. The rest of the form was very specific about his habits and history, so it’s more likely he is a full-breed shih tzu—or whatever a breeder would claim is one. In either case, Scooby is a wonderful dog. He loves walks, gets along well with his foster siblings, (two labs and a basset hound) and is kind to his numerous feline friends.
Because of his adorable ways, he is already beloved by his foster family who thanks you for checking him out and all rescue animals. When you adopt instead of shop you save at least two lives and help put an end to an industry that creates more animals like Scooby that that often end up abandoned.
He has just endured a major surgery to remove the mass and Is recovering nicely. What this boy would love more than anything is to have a home to enjoy his golden years. As a small breed, fourteen is not that old. With proper care and love, Scooby could enjoy some quality time with a good home. He’s housebroken, easy-going, playful, active and adaptable. He loves long walks and sunsets. (Okay, he definitely loves the walks.)
Like most shih tzus, he has high self-esteem and strong opinions, but is also loyal and loving. When he was pulled out of the shelter and took his first car ride since being surrendered, he looked around and whimpered as he tried to figure out which way was home and how he might get there again. Come and meet him and show him the way. You’ll both be happier for it.
Scooby's adoption fee is $175.
