A 12 year old Border Collie mix, Scooter is an adorable, good-natured happy guy who loves people. He is grateful for some back rubs and loves a big hello, just for him! His gentle soul is obvious. He also bounds around the yard with toys, feeling pleased with his new experiences!

Being a mix, Scooter is calmer in nature and enjoys relaxing when his person does, right by your side. A little ball toss or squeaky toy play is just fine or even walks to sniff and enjoy the great outdoors, and when its time to relax, he does! Scooter does well with the other rescue dogs and enjoys the activity of canine pals but could easily be a solo dog.

Scooter has done well in rescue, gaining weight and coming back into better health. His lab work is all good and he is ready for a new life. He has arthritis in his joints so is on gabapentin for nighttime comfort. He will need a single floor home making easier for him to get around. As with all rescues, he has had bloodwork, urinalysis, ultrasound and even chest xrays to be sure he is in great shape for a new person. He is close to 40 pounds.

Scooter was on the streets of North Carolina as a stray having been passed to someone through Facebook because he had trouble doing their stairs. That person then let Scooter go, for whatever reason well never know. Thankfully, he came to GH and has really blossomed back in a home where he is wanted.

Special thanks to the shelter volunteer, Melissa Monroe, who transported Scooter and one of our volunteers, Aiyana Persinger, who drove to Virginia. And, many thanks to rescuer Diane Bolten who brought him to our attention!

HEALTH CHALLENGES:
Scooter has arthritis in his hips and front knee. Pain management is key to his comfort, so Gabapentin is now being used.
