I am looking straight into the camera. I am like an open book, maybe still a little skeptical after so many changes in my life in the past few weeks.  First I ended up in a crowded shelter in South Carolina  with many dogs.  I was one of the few who were spared an early end. I travelled for two days, switching cars many times and being hugged by many of the different volunteer drivers! Calm, happy to be among friends. I travel well.  I could travel even further north!!

I am an easy going dog, no "issues" - such as trying to be boss, being possessive of "things" or food.  I fit in immediately as if I had lived here forever.  I go into my crate to sleep and to eat my food and you can leave the door open.  I know to do my business outdoors. 

So why did I end up at the shelter?  I have no idea, but it happens too often where I came from.  Maybe my owners went away for the summer.. Or moved. 

What breed I am?  A Scottish Terrier "on stelts".  Maybe a  black Schnauzer and Scottish terrier mix.  My coat is rough and thick and stays at a certain length, so no need for regular visits to Groomingdales.  I am about 2 years old. 26 lbs.  I had all that fix and "vetting" done, no heartworms, nails cut, ears cleaned, on heartworm and flea prevention and no parasites. Microchip.  Ready to show up in cyberspace.  So you can see me!

We rarely if ever place our foster dogs into families with FULLTIME children under 6. Even the most dog experienced parents of respectful small children may become concerned when a dog  growls in the presence of a child and will prefer to remove a potential risk.  Because all of our foster dogs are "second hand" dogs,  experience has taught us not to take any chances. Why not label them with the "no children" sign on the Petfinder database?   Because even potential adopters without small children may associate the "red flag"   with a "bite history"  They  may  not even have a look at a dog who could be a good match for them.
