My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Aberdeen Scottish Terrier Rescue is a registered 501(c)3
Web Site:

***MUST SUBMIT APPLICATION before we will respond to email or phone inquiries. Thank You for your cooperation***
Please read listings fully to the end before applying for one of our beloved rescues.

Please do not contact us to look at a dog. We will contact you once we have reviewed your completed application if we think your home might be a good fit. A reference check, phone interview, and home visit will be completed before meeting an adoptable dog.

We work quickly. Please do not submit an application until you are ready to bring a new furry family member home. Expect your references to be contacted shortly after submitting your application. We adopt out to homes around WA & OR, but require that you are present for the meet and greet in Newcastle, WA.

Our adoption fee is non-negotiable. The adoption fee is due on the day of adoption in the form of a check, Zelle or cash. We no longer accept PayPal due to their fees they charge the rescue. But if the potential adopter is willing to pay the PayPal fees & charges we will accept PayPal.

Beautiful & very sweet Morgan is so incredibly lucky to be alive. His mum who we have in the rescue & rescued from death. Aussie was pregnant in a high kill shelter in CA & was going to be euthanized heavily pregnant because no one was coming to help her. Well we did & she gave birth to 7 puppies, but unfortunately 1 went to heaven. Morgan was one of the remaining 6 babies. They were all loved & looked after in a foster home in CA & once he & is siblings were old enough they came back to WA & now Morgan is looking for a forever home & a wonderful family to love him.

UPDATE: We are absolutely devastated to say that Morgan the very loyal boy is yet again looking for his forever home. He is losing his home because he has become protective of his mum & dad in his own home & when they have guests over he has become fearful of other people & nipped at them & lunged at them while in his home. While with us in our rescue, Morgan was always a gentleman & loved everyone & was our vet’s favorite boy. Morgan is a rescue, we are looking for a forever home for him where he has a quite home now & not lots of guests. He does love other dogs.

His previous family said:
- Loves walks, puzzles, chew toys, cuddling on the couch, playing in the yard, and most of all fetch.
- Sleeps until around 7:30AM, is mellow for a few hours, then is ready for physical activity and mental stimulation. Naps multiple times a day and settles down for the night around 8:00PM.
- Eats 3 x a day - breakfast, lunch and dinner.
- Highly intelligent and very food driven. Training with treats has been very successful.
- Has learned the commands come, sit, stay, lay-down, shake, go to your bed, off and drop it.
- Prefers to be with his humans. The most time he has been left at home alone was 2.5 hours and he was not destructive.

Morgan is shy & nervous at first when he doesn’t know you but once he warms up to you, he is SUPER sweet & just wants to be near you! He just wanted me to keep petting him so he was standing up to reach my hands. Whoever adopts him will be so lucky once he warms up to them. He is so precious one our wonderful ladies at our vets said while Morgan was there getting his medical taken care of. She also said she wants to say hi to Morgan when she comes in & he gets so excited to see her & he is such a sweet boy.

Morgan is such a lovely natured little lad & compared to his other brothers who have so much energy. Of course being a puppy he is adventurous & has the curious puppy personality come out. He gets along so well with other dogs & will play with other dogs & he could be the king of his new house to if he got all the attention. He will also want to sleep in the bed with you & adores throwing himself around in comfy blankets. When he is comfortable his tail does not stop wagging. He is still a puppy & would still need to be taught his puppy manners. He also adores being close to people & so wants to be held & kissed. At our vets everyone told us how much they love Morgan & wished they could give him a forever home.
We also put Morgan into a daycare to socialize him with all different dog personalities & he has done well.
Morgan’s new forever home must have a fully fenced secured backyard for his safety. He enjoys going out into the backyard in his foster home & running around playing with his friends & siblings. In CA he also enjoyed laying out in the sun & relaxing.
Morgan has been great with his baths because he started having them with us in his loving foster home the moment he was able to so he is used to them. He loves both men & woman once he knows them.
Morgan is a big eater as he is a growing puppy. He is not shy about eating at all.
Morgan rode beautifully in the car with his foster mum & enjoys a good journey & will also once he knows & trusts his new family to. We have had him in the car a couple of times teaching him car rides are a good thing. He still needs continued work walking on his harness & leash but he is learning but still gangly when being walked. We are looking for a forever home for Morgan where someone is home during the day or he can go with his people wherever possibly he can go with them.
Morgan is looking for a forever home who will cherish him & love him as he should be loved & be patient with him & his puppy ways.

Morgan has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes & he is currently with other dogs & was fostered in CA with other dogs & does well with them & enjoys their company. A fenced backyard is mandatory for Morgan.

Morgan is roughly just 9 months old & 29 lbs & is perhaps an Australian cattle & what he is mixed with we are not sure at all. He is male, he is neutered by laser by our wonderful vets & he is microchipped. He was given flea treatment, up to date on his shots, including DHLPP, Bordatella, CIV, rabies, dewormed.

Morgan has been around cats since being in the rescue in his foster home in CA & did well with the cat in the foster home but doesn’t mean he will do well with all cats. But it’s always up to the new family to be responsible with their animals together. We have not had him around small children so we do not recommend small children nor cats & it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children.

We were not there when Morgan was conceived so we do not know who his dad is but know who his mum is & it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think his breed is.

As with all of our rescues & Morgan friends he will need work on potty training & training, so this should be something the new family would be willing to work on & commit to. Please do not submit an application if you are not willing to commit to one of our rescues care for their whole life & that includes if they need training. Please do not email us asking is Morgan potty trained or available, nor do we ship dogs anywhere as we will not respond.

We would never say anyone of our rescues are potty trained. Our rescues need homes where the people are understanding of their past & what they have been through & what they will need in their daily lives & not willing to give up on them & if they do need training in their new home will in fact take them to training & not just say they will when applying.

Please only submit an application if you are truly interested in adopting Morgan & going through our process and have read his listing fully to the end & are wanting to adopt. If you are not responsive to our calls, emails or your references do not respond we will move on & remove your application from our system. You must be willing to go through our screening process which includes your references being checked, a phone interview & a virtual home visit due to covid & followed by a meet and greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion. We will only be accepting applications for Morgan who understands her needs & that meet all the requirements for this spirited little lad.
Once we find the right home for each little soul we work fast, within days so the dogs can go to their forever homes in quite a timely manner. We do not hold onto dogs for people as our goal is to save lives & please do not submit an application if you are not ready to adopt. We also cannot respond to every application unfortunately.

We have spent so much more money on Morgan than his adoption fee even comes close to covering. Morgan has an adoption fee of $855 & is ready for his truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what he has been through.
