Meet Scooter! Scooter is a beautiful male nine-month-old chocolate Labrador Retriever that loves to have a good time! Scooter was surrendered to WCLRR because his senior owners felt they could not give him the level of activity he needed.
Scooter loves people and other dogs. He lives with four labs, and they all get along very well. His foster has taken him to many public places, including shops, restaurants, and parks, and Scooter was a star! He loves to greet people and is friendly to dogs that he meets.
Scooter is a high-activity dog that needs playtime and training. He enjoys a good game of fetch and playing with stuffed toys. Scooter’s energy level would make him great hiking or running companion! Scooter is young, though, and is still mastering his house manners. His new family will need to reinforce to him that playtime is for outside, and he needs to be calm in the home. Scooter’s foster does report that once he’s had some playtime, he will settle down nicely. Scooter is also a big snuggler who likes curling up with his people!
Scooter is house-trained and hasn’t had any accidents in his foster home. His adopters should take him outside frequently until he is used to his new home. Scooter is an intelligent boy and understands “sit,” “stay,” “shake,” and “down.” His foster is working with him on “come.”
Scooter sleeps quietly through the night on a dog bed in his foster’s bedroom. Then, he gets up early and asks to go outside for a potty break.
Scooter’s ideal home would be with an active individual or couple or a family with older children. However, he is young and has lots of energy. Scooter will do best in a home with people who will take the time to give him the exercise and training he needs. Also, a home with other dogs that like to play would provide him with companionship and playmates to use up some of that energy!
Scooter is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.
