Meet Scooter! Scooter is brand new to HDDCR. This gentle senior dog has a history of abuse and neglect that is intertwined with the kindness of others who rescued him from his situation. We know little about Scooter's early life except that he was kept in a crate with another dog in the basement of a home. At some point, he and the dog living in the crate with him were rescued, and in a strange twist of faith, it was learned his crate companion was a dog that had been stolen 7 years earlier. That dog was eventually reunited with it's original owner and the family, concerned for Scooter, decided to care for him as well. Through the efforts of a local rescue group, Scooter received some much needed medical care which included extraction of all his rotted teeth believed to be the result of neglect and poor nutrition. For the last two years Scooter has enjoyed the attention and love of his new owner, but he was released to HDDCR as his elderly caregiver is no longer able to provide for him..
Despite the abuse and neglect that he suffered, Scooter is a loveable little guy. Being toothless, his tongue sometimes hangs out of his mouth, which makes him look all the cuter. He is a very active and busy little guy, and on the go checking out everything in his foster home. He has been very quiet in his foster home and appears housetrained. Surprisingly, he willing goes into his crate to sleep at night or relax during the day.
If you are interested in meeting Scooter or have additional questions about him, please email his foster mom at
