MEET SCAMP!! Scamp has the appearance of a Treeing Tennessee Brindle Dog - a variety of Cur - but with a considerably larger frame and bearing. His personality is like that of a Lab. He's an gentle giant - his size and character make him a companion of substance! Scamp's tail was not medically docked, rather he seems to have been born with a 3/4 size tail!
Scamp is a true gentleman, and he's a quiet office-mate to his foster mom. In the evenings, he enjoys lying just inside the patio door to take in the sounds and smells. Although he's a rabbit-chaser, Scamp is very accepting of dogs of all sizes. He does not usually engage in play, but is a good-humored observer. The family Scamp joins will be fortunate, indeed.
Scamp was rescued from a situation where he he continued to leave in search of yummy food and doting humans. Though his tattered ears show that, at some point, he might have been left to fend for himself, but he is treasured now! Though not a prolific shedder, ScampLOVES to be brushed, and -- like many guys -- snacks and attention are the way to his (giant) heart!
Although Scamp looks and feels great, he currently takes medication for Valley Fever. Scamp is fortunate to have been brought into a rescue where he was thoroughly vetted, and his illness caught in the early stages so that he could begin treatment right away.
Questions or want to meet Scamp? Please favorite his page and watch for additions to his bio. If you believe you're a match for Scamp, please complete an adoption application.
Our fees and policies are on our home page at BetterDaysRescue.org. We encourage you to register on our site and "Favorite" the dog(s) that interest you, so that you will be notified when bio or photos are updated.
**IMPORTANT** If you are reading about this dog on a pet search site, PLEASE navigate to our animal list http://www.betterdaysrescue.org/animals/list and read this dog's entire, detailed profile, which includes important criteria that must be met in order for your application to be considered.
Dogs remain posted while we screen potential adopters. The dog's status will show "available" "pending adoption" or "adopted." As long as dog is "available" we continue to accept applications.
We are staffed by all volunteers and use an application protocol to handle all inquiries about adoptable dogs. This system enables an efficiency that allows us to save and care for more dogs. Discussion about a dog - including scheduling of a home check or other dialogue - cannot occur until we have received your completed adoption application. NO EXCEPTIONS. Thank you!
We save, care for, and rehabilitate dogs that may have some medical issues and/ or may not be easiest to place because of lack of training and socialization. Many of our dogs are taken from the euthanasia lists at the County shelters; some are found dogs with no apparent homes.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We make arrangements to meet prospective adopters. Typically, one of the executive officers will preside over the meet and greet. Usually, more than one meet and greet is required before an adoption will occur. The meet and greet is a structured and carefully planned event.
Our Adoption Process...
There is an extensive information application, a home visit is required, references are checked, and there is a contract.
