Scooby's Info...

I am already neutered.

Scooby's Story...
Scooby, male 10lb, 4 years old  Poodle/Chihuahua $350. Adoption fee  

Scooby has very long legs, tightly curled hair, and a Chihuahua-looking head. He was shaved on 4/17, and still has a short coat, so may be able to go a while between grooming.

Scooby can be a very active dog.  He goes walking with about 1 ½ miles in the morning, then goes to the dog park with a couple of other dogs also in the morning—and runs around there also.  He gets along with other dogs, and goes to strangers to say hi.  He veers towards anyone when walking, just in case he can get some attention.  At home, he is a lap dog, and never voluntarily gets off—you have to stand up and dump him.  He ignores cats that don’t look nervous when they see him—my male cats are all bigger than him—but will chase a nervous cat.

I have never seen Scooby around children, but he is a little small to be around small children.  He can be nervous when I leave—or maybe he is just copying the other dogs—but once he thinks I’m gone he stops whining/barking.

In short, he is a mature dog who can be either a couch potato or a terrific hiker, and he loves being around people and other dogs.

Dogs are vaccinated, microchipped  and spayed/neutered before adoption. 
The necessary first step to inquire about any dog, is to complete the NCPR Adoption Interest Form. Once we receive the NCPR Adoption Interest Form, a volunteer will contact you promptly. We need your information to match you with the perfect companion. NorCal Poodle Rescue places dogs within northern California only.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scooby, a Walnut Creek Poodle (Miniature)/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Chihuahua for sale in Walnut Creek, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Walnut Creek.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Walnut Creek already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Walnut Creek breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Poodle (Miniature)/Chihuahua breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Walnut Creek paves the way for another one to be saved.
