SCOOTER is a boxer mixed with something, perhaps American Bull Dog, Pit Bull Terrier, or Boston Terrier. Only a DNA test will settle this debate. 
 
Life didn't start out so well for SCOOTER. She lived her entire life inside a crate until she was removed from her home by Animal Control and taken to the Pound where she was going to be euthanized. Lucky for her one of our trainers stepped in and saved her life. 
 
SCOOTER builds trust slowly. She is awkward meeting new people and takes time to let her guard down. Once she does, she blossoms into a most adorable and loving dog.
 
SCOOTER is not for the feint of heart. She won't be the right dog for most people, but for some very lucky person/s she will be perfect, and that is who we are looking for to adopt her.
 
SCOOTER needs an experienced owner who lives a quiet life. She enjoys car rides, snuggles, bully sticks, and moderate walks. She loves Starbucks Pupacino's!
 
She knows lots of commands - SIT, DOWN, SHAKE (both paws), STAY (although she needs work on staying for long periods of time).  Her adopter must agree to work with a trainer initially, not to teach SCOOTER commands, but to learn about her limitations and how to socialize her properly so she can live her best life ever.
 
SCOOTER is impeccably house broken and well mannered in the home. She is crate trained, but prefers to have access to the crate as opposed to being locked inside of it.
 
While SCOOTER has lived with dogs previously, she tends to be reactive when meeting new dogs, which is one of the reasons working with a trainer is mandatory. We prefer a home with no other animals for SCOOTER, but would like for her to be comfortable walking past other dogs without feeling compelled to react to them.
 
SCOOTER is 3.5 years old, fully vetted, and living in a foster home in New Milford, CT.
