Meet Scotti Met Biscotti ..aka Scotti. he is 2 year old, rather small compared to most shepherd mixes. He came to the shelter at only 38 lbs but is now at a beautiful 50 heathy lbs. He looks more like an Spitz/Shepherd mix. This beautiful boy had a chemical burn to his back but it healed nicely. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and house broken. Walks good on a leash, loves playing in water, crate trained, loves car rides, knows sit, down and paw. Highly intelligent! Biscotti is super sweet but is currently in training for guarding issues. Once he bonds he is protective of his home and family. He would do best with a home with low traffic but one that likes to take walks, hikes etc. scotti has a lot of puppy like energy and needs to burn off some of that energy. Homes within a hour of Knoxville preferred. Currently only Considering Homes without children. A fence in yard would be recommended but not required.
