Scottish Terrier
Age: Adult

Meet Angus, 7 yr old male black male Scottish Terrier. Angus came into rescue with Alex (Wheaton color Scottish Terrier, also posted for adoption) after being abandoned in the garage with a large pot belly pig. The owner had died & left his house along with the 2 scotties to his adult grandson. Animal control retrieved the scotties & placed them with the local shelter, then released into RuFF Rescue. Angus had half his body hairless with sores & skin tags (some as big as ping pong balls) - other parts of his coat were dreadlocks. He had ear & eye infection along with skin infection. He needed two scripts of antibiotics, ear & eye medication. He had multiple tests & negative for Cushing or other diseases. His skin tags were benign. Angus was depressed upon arrival into rescue-his ears were flat & his tail tucked. He refused to eat, moped & slept for long hours for the first week to 10 days. He started eating & one ear pricked- then the chatter started. He has been bathed with medicated shampoo & slowly cut his coat. As the medication started to work & his health began to improve, he chattered more- both ears became pricked & his tail went up & wagged. Angus is happy! He became more relaxed & started exploring his environment. He is nonstop chatter. His skin tags have been removed, his skin is healing & his coat is growing in. His foster family reported it was apparent he was well taken care of & loved in his earlier life before his owner died. He approaches foster parents for affection, he responds to treats & basic commands. He loves walks, playing & snuggles. He enjoys other nice dogs. He does well with potty skills. Angus is neutered, recent dental, heartworm negative & on prevention, current on vaccinations & microchipped. Suggested adoption donation is $600.
