Scotty is a scruffy looking grizzle with tan terrier mix. He is a cute guy! He is underweight right now and will look better when he puts on more weight. Scruffy is great with other dogs and actually has been enjoying playing with any dog that will play with him. He loves to chase and be chased, tumble on the ground, run around with a toy in his mouth and bark. He does enjoy barking at other dogs but it’s all in fun. Usually he is rather a quiet guy.
Scotty was letf at a local animal shelter back in early spring. So, for seven months he was at an animal shelter waiting to be adopted which, obviously, ever happened. While waiting in the kennels he developed a dejected look about him as well as just some bad habits: he is doing much, much better!
Scotty’s routine has been from his doggy crate to the outdoor yard. We initially allowed him to be outside as much as he wanted but now we are working with him on being in his crate up to 4 hours at a time as well as nighttime. He is doing great! He has started coming into the kitchen so we can work with him on housetraining. We think he is housetrained but it’s been so long that he may need some re-training.
This is a great dog; wonderful temperment, smart, cute and does well with other animals. With some time and training he could be a perfect family pet.
A fenced in yard is desirable as is a doggy playmate.
