At first I was looking for a Xolo [a Mexican hairless dog], but when there were none around and a prior adoption didn't go as planned, I hit Petfinder. After looking for dogs that are good with my allergies, I came upon Scottie. His tubby little figure caught my eye, and so I read his story, finding he was a quiet and happy little man, eager to please. So I gave a call and, the very second I got a call back, I ran to my car and burned rubber over to the rescue which was an hour away. When I got there, the rescue owner told me he wouldn't be outside because he was a shy dog, but wouldn't you know it, Scottie was outside looking right out at me on the patio where they were kept! It's like he knew I was there for him! Since then we haven't been separated, and because of his good demeanor, I've decided to train him to be my Psychiatric Service Dog, and he's such a good little pup. Stubborn as his breed is, he still likes to cuddle up and nap all day but, when it's time to go with me to the store or school, he's up for the task! I love my little Scottie and I don't know where I'd be without him!
