Hello. My name is Scooter and I am looking for my forever family. I am almost one year old terrier/boxer mix and would like to spend my first birthday in my own bed. You see, I came to Rover Rescue a few months ago after being found as a stray in Indiana. My foster mom took me in and has a huge yard and I love to run around in and play chase with my foster friend. One day I decided to jump over the fence and when I tried to come home, I caught my back legs on the fence. Oh boy did that hurt. I had to have surgery and the Dr. fixed me up real good. I'm all better now and can run around just fine, but I do have to be careful. Sadly for me, my jumping days are over so they tell me. So if you didn't guess by now, I am a very active pup and surgery hasn't slowed me down. I know how to sit and give my paw and I am both house trained and crate trained. I love people and children so much that I get so excited and I jump up on them. I guess I'm not supposed to do that so I'll need some schooling. I promise that I am very smart and love to learn but I just can't help myself and I'll need a lot of patience from my new family. Did I mention that I will love you unconditionally? Well, I will and I will snuggle with you until I am in your lap or push you out of bed. I can't be close enough to you and I will love you forever. I will love you so much that I wouldn't want to share you with another dog. I really like to play with my foster dogs but unless I go to college and learn how to be the best dog ever, I cannot share a home with another dog and it goes the same for cats. My new family has to be very dog savvy and capable of giving me the discipline I need so that I can become the best I can be. It is very important that my new family has experience with at least one of the terrier/boxer/husky/cattle dog or other challenging dog breeds in order for us to be a good match. My foster mom says that while I can be the most gentle cuddle bug, I can also play so hard that the other dogs have a hard time understanding me. I guess that means that I'm too much for some dogs. My foster mom says that I will need to finish doggy college before being allowed to play freely or go to a dog park. I promise you that I am a great dog and I know there is a home for me, but I also know that it is going to take some time for you to find me. In the meantime, I will wait patiently as I am safe, but please share my profile with someone you know looking for a dog if you know you are not the right family for me but know someone who is. There are still other dogs waiting to take my spot. Otherwise, if you think you are my forever person/family and are ready to put me in school, (our rescue has some trainers we use and recommend) please contact my foster mom Denise at 630-439-6541. I am up to date on vaccines and neutered.
