Rescue One

Our Featured Pet

Adoptable Pet List

Hey guys, I'm Scruffy. I am a male Terrier mix, and I'm 7 years old. I am very independent minded, but also the most loyal dog you will ever meet. I need to go to a home with kids 10 and above, because I don't like it when people touch around my collar area (my foster mom says that it is a typical reflex for a previously chained/abused dog), and I wouldn't want to scare anybody. My perfect day would be to go on a long walk, watch some TV, and then take a ride in your pick-up. I want to follow you everywhere! I'd be happy to ride on a Mule or Gator and then go swimming in the pond. I will never expect a bath, but after the pond I'd be happy to shower with you! I would love to sleep in your bed, or next to it on a palette. If you need some more convincing that I am your dog, just remember that I am housebroken and never tear anything up! I have free rein of the house where I stay, and that is exactly how I like it, the crate isn't my favorite. I also LOVE table scraps, and will sit up and beg for them. I promise, I'll be the best fetching forever friend you've ever had! Will you adopt me?
