If you follow me on Twitter, you might have already heard the news: I adopted a dog named Scooby! He’s a 4 -year-old hound who has a lot of energy and loves people!
I adopted him from a local rescue organization that sets up on weekends at the Petco in my town. It’s actually the same organization where I fostered/adopted my cat, Tigger! They told us that they found Scooby as a stray. They also suspected that he might’ve belonged to a hunter who let him go when the season ended (poor little guy!). His ear is even ripped (it’s healed, but split a little at the bottom) from running around in wooded areas, and he’s more on the underweight side (not on purpose, believe me-he loves food!).
Anyways, he’s so sweet! It hasn’t been long since I’ve adopted him, but he has been very clingy and loves to follow me and my roommates around the house. He’s also incredibly friendly; if he goes to sniff a dog outside, he’ll immediately go up to their owner after he sniffs the dog. Sometimes he gets too excited, so it’s currently difficult to walk him in parks where there’s lots of people.
He’s still getting house trained and tends to yank on the leash when he’s outside, but he’s learning! He also chases the cats around the house-Tigger in particular since she loves to run around. Hopefully he’ll get used to her and stop scaring her.
I’m so glad that I was able to find Scooby! I actually saw him at Petco on Saturday, then I went to my apartment with the intent to sleep on it. I arrived the next day and saw that Scooby was still there, so I couldn’t say no. Now I have a new buddy to go on adventures with, and Scooby has a new home!
Thanks for reading about Scooby! Do you have any pets? What kind?
