Scooter is a great little dog. He's a little chunky which puts his weight more in the medium category, about 25 pounds, but ideally he should weigh about 20 pounds. Scooter was placed in boarding when his family built a new home. Circumstances do not allow him to return home. He's so ready to get out of boarding. Scooter is completely vetted and all ready for a new home. He's about 7 years old and still fairly active. He likes to go for walks and is house trained. He's past the difficult years of puppyhood and well behaved. He is content by himself but can also live amongst other dogs. He is low maintenance and does not require much. He is a pleasant boy and his tail is always wagging, that's why it's a blur in the photos. Scooters adoption fee is $100 and helps to reimburse for his vet care. Scooter is up to date on his vaccinations and preventatives, heart worm negative and neutered. If you would like more information on Scooter, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Scooter will not be at our Petco adoption events but arrangements can be made for you to meet him with a completed online adoption application on our site (see orange link below or at the top and bottom of this page).
Note that visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Scooter on an impulse. You should take the time to carefully consider the long term commitment, expense, and passion it takes to give him the home he deserves and needs. Scooter will reward you with unbounded love and devotion, but you must be committed and serious about your decision to bring him into your life. Remember, this is an adoption, not a sale, and we’re very serious about making sure that both you and Scooter are a good match for each other.
An adoption fee applies to Scooter’s adoption, and helps to reimburse our expenses for all of the necessary vet care that has been provided to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions, rabies, micro-chipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella, grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and monthly preventative for all ages while in foster care. The adoption fee does not reimburse for all expenses and covers only a portion of most expenses involved in rehabilitating our rescues and returning them to health. Please keep this in mind when you are adopting a dog.
Please note that Scooter WILL NOT be available to be met in person at our weekly adoption showing at the West Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway, across from Target and Home Depot. This is in the same strip mall as Old Navy and Shoe Carnival. Our showing hours are from 1-4 every Saturday except major holiday weekends.

Due to time restraints, we are not able to accept phone calls but we always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs are available for a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process (local adoptions only). This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. Puppies under the age of 6 months are not available to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times. All of our foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society.
