Scooter's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Scooter's Story...
Scooter came to rescue along with his friend Charlie. They had lived in a pen in a garage that was never cleaned so their coats were in bad shape and of course they were not neutered so the housebreaking is a little more challenging, but is going pretty good.

Scooter is just a happy-go-lucky little guy. He weighs 15 pounds and gets along with all the other dogs in his foster home and even the cats. Scooter has been neutered, vaccinated and tested for heartworms.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scooter, a Columbus Shih Tzu/Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Maltese for sale in Columbus, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Maltese dog from a breeder in Columbus.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Columbus 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 Columbus 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 Shih Tzu/Maltese breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Columbus paves the way for another one to be saved.
