About Scotty

Poodle / Chihuahua
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Three-year-old Scotty is smart, athletic, playful, affectionate, adorable, and up for anything you like to do. AND he doesn't shed!! His DNA test showed him to be 48% Poodle, 27% Chihuahua with some Shih Tzu, Pomeranian and Dachshund thrown in. Scotty LOVES training and sports! He graduated Level-1 Agility with flying colors and would love to find a forever family who'll continue that with him. He's also had some professional obedience training. He knows his basic commands and is already quite impressive with recall. He walks nicely on a leash with his Perfect Pace headcollar and has been a perfect gentleman on outings to Irvine Spectrum, Laguna Beach, and Dana Point Marina, dining at outdoor bistros, and shopping at Nordstrom and PetSmart (his fave!). Like many terrier types, Scotty sometimes needs time to warm up to strangers. (Hint: Fetch, squeaky toys, tug, and tricks for treats are his Love Language.) He doesn't mind the company of other dogs - but he'd really prefer to be your one and only. He enjoys an active lifestyle and would be in heaven if you happen to have a big yard where he can do zoomies. We are not recommending a home with small children due to Scotty being a bit particular about how and when he prefers to cuddle, and the inability of little humans to understand dog body language. To help Scotty get off to a great start with his forever family, he comes with a 'Smart Start' training scholarship for 3 private in-home sessions. If you are interested in meeting Scotty and can provide the kind of home he needs, please first complete the adoption application at Once your application has been received and reviewed you will be contacted to discuss if Scotty is a good fit for you. Scotty's $300 adoption donation includes his vet exam, vaccinations, neuter surgery, training program, flea treatment and microchip.
