GENERAL INFO ABOUT PERSONALITY: Scooter is an old terrier man who can sometimes have old terrier man attitude. He comes in for love and cuddles on his terms and really enjoys going out on casual walks. Scooter will let you know when he wants to go outside by howling. He has a good singing voice. He has been good with other dogs, and in fact they tend to perk him up a little bit! He is also good to live with cats. His previous owner said he was good with kids but since he is a senior and we’ve seen him growl and be a little snappy at times. We recommend kids 12 and up who know dog’s boundaries. Scooter really doesn’t like to be groomed. He will let you know when he is uncomfortable. Scooter’s blood work came back normal, and he recently had a benign growth removed behind his ear. Other than having a little arthritis, he is still a spunky guy! Scooter is looking for a quiet and loving home where he can lay in a comfy bed and go for casual walks. If you are looking for a mellow, affectionate senior guy with a little bit of sass, Scooter is your man. Activity Level? Low. Training Needs? Low. House Trained? Yes. Leash Trained? Yes. Comfortable with kids? Supposedly, but we advise kids 12 and up. Comfortable with strangers? Mostly. History with other dogs? Good. History with cats? Good.
