#12064 Scott

Small-size, Male, Adult Shepherd,
Energy Level 4

Energy Level 4 - Needs 1 hour of a mixture of off-leash playtime and or mental stimulation every day.

Hi, my name is Scott, I came to OPH on the Desert Animal transport on 8/5. I'm guessed to be a sweet 1 1/2-year-old terrier mix, weighing about 28lbs.
I am a friendly, happy pup looking for someone to love and be with furever
I will be your faithful companion, loyal, and caring
Crate trained
House trained
Have not chased the kittens but did catch a chicken but let go when foster mom said to
Get alone with other dogs, I prefer smaller or the same size
I am playful, would be very happy if you have a fenced yard for me to zoom in
I will jump for joy when you come home or just back in the same room as me, working on not jumping on people
I LOVE laying in the sun and if I get warm/hot I can come back in thru the doggie door or lay in the shade
I like to garden too, if you are weeding, I will help you get to the root
I like to just lay close to you but I'm good if you need your space
I am very food motivated, foster mom said I'm doing great being 'gentle' when taking treats
I am also learning basic commands like sit (no problem), down (well still working on), off, stay/wait (trying but I get so excited)
If you are looking for an active, playful, loving companion I would love to meet you
My foster mom said I'm 'a diamond in the ruff', just take a chance to meet me and I'll show you how I can sparkle
I made my way North to find my family oasis in the desert. Is that with you? If so, apply now I won't be available for long.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

Scott is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Scott is currently being fostered in Point Of Rocks, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
