Scooter - ID 14470 -Scooter will make a great dog for someone! He’s house-trained, well-mannered, does great on a leash and on an attachment to a bicycle, does well riding in the car, and generally gets along with other dogs (although he does have an alpha personality and will not back down if challenged). He desperately wants to be near you, and even though he will eventually give you space if you insist on it, he does so with great reservations and is constantly alert to the slightest signal from you that you have regained your senses and do, in fact, want him to: a) get in your lap, b) get in bed with you c) go into the garage, or bathroom, or closet with you. He loves to play and is extremely agile and springy---I don’t know much about training dogs for agility courses, but I get the impression that he would be an All Star! One drawback to his agility and athleticism is that they apparently make it easy for him to get out of yards. The good news is that he will immediately come back if you call him, but keeping him safely secure might be a challenge (though he’s definitely worth it!). He’s a great size---big enough to be a satisfying snuggle buddy, but light enough that even a small person can easily control him. We’ve left him free in the house for up to 8 hours with no problems (except for a couple of times when he got out of the yard after using the doggy door to go outside). He seems to truly enjoy being around children and I’ve never seen him be anything but gentle with them, but I hesitate to say that he’d be a good dog for children simply because he has a bit of a fighter’s heart (I’ve nicknamed him The Lighter---he’s a lover AND a fighter!). My family has grown very attached to this springy, feisty little guy, but I think he would be best with a person or family that has experience dealing with dominant dogs.
Unfortunately, he is heartworm positive, but it’s a light positive and we are hopeful that giving him heartworm preventative for the next 5 months will be all that’s required (we’ve had success with that in the past). If he’s still HW positive in 5 months, the GAP will fund the treatment (as long as his adopter goes through GAP’s vet). Scooter would make someone a wonderful dog, and he deserves a home where he will be considered a family member.
Scooter is probably around three years old, and will need a home with a wooden fence. He has a slender whippet face, and the look and body of a small cattle dog with light golden brown hair.
