Say hi to Scooter, a 1-year-old, male, Terrier-Mix dog. Scooter weighs 18 pounds and he will stay a small breed dog. His short, easy to care for coat is coal black with charming markings of white from his chin down his chest, on the tips of his toes and a soft brush stroke on his forehead and top of his nose. He’s smart and knows basic commands, and Scooter will be great in a variety of home settings, from an active family to being a more relaxed, lap dog with a senior couple. He’s sweet, affectionate, quiet, friendly and waiting for his good, forever home.


My name is Joe. I’m a 1-year-old, orange Tabby, male. My personality is calm, curious and affectionate. I love people and I love being held and cuddled. I hope you will come by the shelter and take me into the “get acquainted” room, so I can show you what a great companion I will be. Let’s spend a little time together. I know l will win your heart and we can have a warm and fuzzy, forever life together.
