Adoptable Dog of the Week – Scooter

Tiny but mighty, this cute little doggo will have you falling head over heels! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Scooter, a 6 years old Maltese mix from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, and ready to be pampered by his new family. He is good with other dogs but hasn’t been tested around cats. Due to his petite size (Scooter only weighs 18 pounds!) it might be best that he goes to a family without kids or with older kids.

Scooter’s Tale

This handsome fella is not just a looker – he has a great personality, too! If you want an adorable, sweet pocket pooch to be your best friend and companion, Scooter is your guy. Don’t let his small stature fool you, though. Scooter is one active little pooch and he loves to play and run around, which is why a home with a fenced big yard would be ideal for him. He’d have space to explore and play safely within his own “kingdom”. After all that running and playing, Scooter will gladly sit with you and enjoy some quality cuddle-time. He is a sweet and affectionate pooch that will melt your heart!

A charmer that he is, Scooter makes fast friends, even with other dogs, so he could be a match even if you already share your home with a canine. He hasn’t been tested around cats, so the jury is still out on that – a testing period or a meet and greet would be best if you have a feline friend in the family.

In case you are interested in learning more about Scooter and how you could be the one to give him a furever home, contact Dakota Dachshund Rescue for more information. Fingers crossed – anyone would be lucky to have Scooter in their family!
