Facts about Scooter

  • Breed: Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Silver & Tan (Yorkie Colors)
  • Age: Adult

  • ID#: 9736878

Scooter was pampered and loved by his human dad. But his world turned upside down when his daddy had to go into the hospital with a terminal illness and could no longer care for him. Apparently, there were no family members able or willing to adopt him. So sad! Scooter is looking for a loving family to give him a secure, forever, happy home again.

Scooter likes to go outside and play with dog friends, and he's good with cats too. Scooter prefers adults, young children make him nervous and he will growl and snap at them. He is shy with new people at first meeting  and will cling to his foster mom, as if he is afraid he is going to be taken away. That must be from his memory of being separated from his owner. He follows his foster mom everywhere and loves to sit with her to be petted and cuddled. Scooter just needs a patient dog lover to give him a chance.

Estimated birthdate: February 2013

Approximate weight: 9 lbs

Our Adoption Process...

1. Application
An adoption application is required, providing information about your family, as well as past and current pets.
2. Vet check
You give us permission to contact your veterinarian regarding current and/or past pets. You must have a good vet history, showing that you are a responsible pet owner.
3. Home visit
A home visit will be scheduled.
• To adopt a dog, you must have a fenced area. We will check it to make sure there are no escape routes. We will not leave a dog with you unless problem areas are fixed.
• To adopt a cat, the home environment must be safe for the cat. There needs to be a place where the cat can be isolated for several days until the new cat & current pets can get used to each other.
4. Trial run
There will be a minimum of a one week trial at your home, to make sure that the pet you have chosen is a good match with your family. If the pet does not work out, for whatever reason, we will take the pet back.
5. Adoption finalization
When we all agree that the pet is a good match with your family, the adoption can be finalized. An adoption contract is signed. You must promise to be a responsible and loving pet owner for the entire life of your new pet.
6. Adoption fees
• Dogs - $150
• Cats - $100
This fee helps defray the cost of vetting but by no means covers all the money already spent on your new pet. All rescues are completely vetted: all shots up-to-date, spayed/neutered and parasite free. (Dogs) are micro-chipped, heartworm negative and currently taking a heart worm preventative. (Cats) are tested and negative for FIV and FELV. Other health issues may also have been treated and you will get a history of anything that’s been done.
