Scooby - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Sullivan County SPCA, Rock Hill, NY.


My name is Scooby, but my family calls me "Loo." I was adopted from the Sullivan County SPCA back in 2006. At the time, I was one of the worst abuse cases that the shelter had ever seen, and no one wanted to adopt me because I was so scared of everybody and everything! But after about a year of my patiently waiting, the Ross family adopted me! I love my family so much and love to play with all of the other adopted dogs and cats they have!

I am especially scared of thunderstorms, rain and wind, so whenever the weather is bad my mommy takes me downstairs in the basement and turns on the TV so I can't hear anything.

I particularly love the snow, and could play in it all day. Although I am nearly 12 years old, I am still a puppy at heart. I love unconditionally and am so thankful for my family who rescued me!
