found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Scrappy gets along with his foster sibling dachshunds. He also entertains himself well by playing with toys and chewing on cow hooves. He loves the Bobo stuffed toys -- fortunately dogs are color-blind so Scrappy's not aware that his favorite Bobo is *PINK*! (Don't tell him, please!!) He's a good watchdog, alerting the family to strange sounds and people approaching, but he doesn't bark unless there's something to bark at. Scrappy likes to explore his foster family's back yard and is quite interested in their koi pond. He frequently stands at the edge of the pond to watch the fish swimming.
In the evenings, Scrappy likes to relax on the couch and watch TV with his foster family. Scrappy sleeps through the night in his crate with no fuss. He's a good eater, and is learning to "sit" for treats.
He was abandoned by his original owner, who purchased him as a tiny puppy for her 4 year old daughter. She told the vet "I can't handle a puppy, a 4 year old and a baby". Unfortunately, like many people, she failed to think ahead to the long term responsibilities of pet ownership and when the care of the dog required effort, she got rid of him. Thankfully, a wonderful vet tech at the clinic took Scrappy Doo in to her home, and made sure he got all his shots, and other needed vet care along with neutering. Then she contacted us for help. We were glad to take this darling little dog, and so appreciate the vet tech's outstanding care for him. He will have some minimal vet work to finish up, and will be microchipped. Scrappy Doo will be ready for his new home around May 18th. Because of his high energy level, he will require owners who have had past experience in owning dachshunds or other small breeds of dogs.
