More on Scooby From Abington

Hello all,

Just wanted to update you on my FIRST Foster, Scooby. I pulled him at 2:45 pm on Wednesday from the Montgomery County SPCA in the snow! His owner was dying, so her family dropped him off with 2 other dogs. He came with no paperwork, but he is making monumental progress!!!

He is eating his new food (grain free Blue Buffalo), snoozes (or should I say snores) on my couch most of the time. He sleeps in his bed at night (crate was NOT something he is comfortable with at all - would howl endlessly). He is so sweet and gives lots of Boston kisses! He's been a dream come true (so I hear) for a foster. He doesn't like being alone, though, so we are working on that. He barks a lot when I first leave. I have left for 30 minutes at a time and when i get back he is still barking :-(


Since he is not OK with a crate, I "penned" him in my kitchen while I went to family for Thanksgiving dinner. I came home to a CLEAN KITCHEN!!!!! No messes!!!! and he was sleeping in his bed!!!! No barking!!! I felt TERRIBLE leaving him since he is so new, but I have to get him to learn it's OK to be home alone and that I will be coming back.

He goes to the vet on Monday for his wellness check and once we get blood work back, he will be getting neutered. Honestly, I think he could be totally adoptable after his adjustment with me. He's such a sweet boy, has very low energy, but listens pretty good, good on a leash, but with some more training, should be able to know simple commands. (Haven't tested this yet as I wanted to let him settle for a week.)

Enjoy the pictures! He loves getting his ears scratched! Working on getting the video of him playing off my phone. File size issues... UGH!
