Scooter is an approximate 7-8 year old male dachshund that was an owner surrender to an animal shelter. No reason was given.
Scooter is a perfect little male dachshund that is just as sweet and well-behaved as he can be. He gets along with small or large dogs male and female. We have not experienced him around cats, but he probably would be good with them because he is laid back and calm… but will chase and bark at squirrels in the yard, of course!! He is not food or play aggressive. He is housetrained and learned to use our doggy door very quickly. He enjoys playing with his doxie pals and hanging out with his whole family in the backyard or watching TV and just chillin! He is the cutest little doxie lovebug!
He will lay quietly by himself or with his doxie buddies, but also would love to lay on your lap. He doesn’t mind sharing his people. He will sleep in a kennel or the people bed if allowed. He likes to stand on his back legs watching you prepare his meals. Boy does he like food!
Loves to be by his foster mom's side everywhere. Such a sweet buddy!
Scooter is so well liked by all who have come in contact with him since coming to AADR. Please contact his foster Mom, Deanna, and she will give you much greater detail and pictures.

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
