Hi Everyone!  My name is Scoot and I am a 35 pound Cocker Spaniel and Golden Retriever Mix with a long, fluffy tail.  I spent the first six years of my life chained outside, unable to play and desperate for human attention.  I wasn't a happy dog then, but I sure am happy now!  This has helped to me to adjust quickly to living indoors and I am housebroken and crate trained.  I also do great living with other dogs.  The folks at OBG aren't sure about me with cats and I'm keeping them guessing.  I stayed in a house once with cats and just ignored them.

When I first arrived at OBG, I was heartworm positive which meant that for two months, I had to stay very calm while I was being treated for heartworms. My treatment is now over so I can run and play which makes me oh so happy.  My favorite game is chasing tennis balls (still working on the retrieving part), but I also love to play with toys, too.  When I am not playing, I love to give my foster parents lots of kisses or lay quietly somewhere chewing on a nylabone.  At first, I wasn't too sure about being held on a lap, but after a couple of months of watching the other dogs in the home get up on mommy's lap, I decided to give it a try and guess what?  I love being held and cuddled!  It sure beats living outside on a chain.

My foster parents think maybe someone hurt me in my past.  I have a fracture in my back that didn’t heal well and as a result, I haven’t learned how to jump.  Also, my tail has a weird bent to it that looks like it was broken and did not heal correctly.  As a result of my past, I can be head shy and I’m not too fond yet of vets or groomers (they have to muzzle me).  I have enjoyed meeting older children, but I don’t think that I would like to live with younger children because they might make me nervous, especially until I get to know them.  So, if you adopt me, I just ask that you be patient with me while I get to know you and anyone new and I'll reward you with my famous kisses!

Do you have a forever home for me?  If so please send an email to my foster family at the link below.
