Plenty of Pets
Scottie is a four-year-old golden retriever-terrier mix who weighs about 60 pounds.
He’s friendly, excitable, smart, and eager to please. He is looking for a calm and assertive leader who will enjoy his upbeat and intelligent nature.
He enjoys snuggling, tug-o-war, getting brushed, and eating peanut butter.
Scottie loves being outside in the woods or at the beach, walking, running and meeting people. He likes to go to the dog park, mainly to meet more people. He’s good with calm dogs but doesn’t like rough housing.
He’s house trained, crate trained and leash trained, but he sometimes jumps up when he’s excited so a home where children aren’t too small would be best.
Scottie is neutered, vaccinated, and treated for parasites and micro-chipped. He comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. His adoption fee is $350.
If you’re interested in Scottie, visit Coastal K9 Rescue’s website or Facebook page or email email@example.com
