Adoptable Dogs



 Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-TAA!! PUPPY POWER!!

Scrappy is a feisty Chihuahua terrier mix (we think?) who's Wish journey started with a foster pick up from animal control on New Years Eve. He's so ready for a loving family of his own that you might hear him using his catch phrase, "Lemme at 'em! LEMME AT 'EM!!" But he's not looking for a fight, just some attention... and maybe some cheese.

Scrappy Dappy Doo/ Little Guy/ Jumping Bean
Age: 1-2 years
Sex: Male
Weight: 9 lbs of non-stop movement
Breed: Chihuahua terrier mix?

PERSONALITY: I'm pretty spoiled by my foster parents who I will run literal circles around if given the chance. I love being outside, but I detest all things wet and cold. My favorite game is keep away... or destroy the squeaky thing! A fenced in yard with no holes or gaps is a must since I am so small and still getting used to life in a home. I currently only go in the yard while leashed. I do love to be held, but quick movements make me a little nervous when I'm first getting to know you. I am also eager to please and benefit from training sessions and consistent reinforcement. I'm a fierce lover and will be extremely loyal to my people when I find them.

I excel at:
Potty Training - I don't mind going outside when it's warm and dry, but I*always* use my potty pads inside. 
Making friends with both dogs and cats... I can play rough since I'm still young, so a patient furry friend is best. I have been living with two feline and one canine foster brother.
Learning new things - I know where to go when my foster mom says "Bed" and I'm very smart and highly motivated by treats.
I can be a little stubborn about when I eat because I really want the wet yummy food, but eventually I will eat what I'm given. 

HEALTH & GROOMING: My coat is short and sheds quite a bit, but it's easy to maintain. I am up to date on all my vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. 

What’s required to make me your Valentine?!
• Love, Food & lots of toys to keep me busy!
• I want to be the best puppy I can be. A training class or private lessons with an approved trainer is a must! I love to learn.
• Patience- I'm new to humans in my world, but once I know I'm safe, my true personality will shine. I'm also still getting used to appropriate play with everyone, but I love to play.
• Someone with no personal space issues - I always need to see my people, know what's going on, and want to be in on the fun... even if the fun is relaxing on the sofa.
