When we were contacted about MacTavish needing assistance, we couldn't possibly say no. He obviously had been neglected, had little socialization and was angry while staying in a shelter environment. Our first hours and days with him were trying, but in the end, love and kindness won. We quickly realized "Tav" had been abused. He was petrified of anything resembling a stick, such as a broom, or even the "pooper scooper". In time, he has realized he is safe and won't be hit again. Now, he eagerly sits up for a treat, and loves his time getting belly rubs on the sofa.
Tav has had a full physical exam, updated vaccinations, neutering, a dental cleaning, and a growth removal (which was benign). He needs to find a home with Scottie experience, a quiet environment and human parents that are eager to continue his socialization into the world of kindness.
All dogs adopted by Scottie Kingdom Rescue, Inc. have had a full medical exam by one of our licensed Veterinarians, which includes testing (and treatment, if necessary) for Heartworm disease, Lyme disease, Ehrlichia and Anaplasmosis, all necessary vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, dental cleaning as necessary, microchipping, registration of the microchip, and any other medical needs each particular dog may need. Copies of all available medical records are transferred to you when the adoption is finalized.
We prefer to adopt to families with past Scottie, Westie, Terrier experience, but realize this isn’t always possible. We do NOT ship our pets. If you have that special place in your heart, and in your home, for a Scottie (or any of our other available rescue dogs), please visit us in Dallas for an in person meet & greet session with our available dogs. If you have existing dogs, they should travel to Dallas with you, so we can be assured that they will be compatible with the new addition to your family.
Please contact us at Rescue@scottiekingdom.com to receive an Adoption Application or for more information on our Adoption process. Also, please take the time to visit our website www.scottiekingdom.com for additional information.
We sometimes receive several applications on the same dog. Our goal is to place the dog in the best home possible, based on his/her needs, personality and past history. Please note: Adoptions are not done on a first come, first served basis. Submitting an application does not guarantee the adoption of any dog. We are looking for the best available home for each of our rescue dogs.
