Brief description: Scooby is named such, because he is the biggest goof you’ve ever met! He gets himself into all kinds of predicaments! His two foster siblings are English bulldogs, and he follows them through their little doggy door!! Not to minimize his size in the least--He is Dane tall, Mastiff smart and Frenchie cute! He loves everyone he meets. He will meet strangers with a scary bark, then almost knock them over with his leaning love on them. He loves to play with other dogs, and most critters really.

Likes: DOGS, PEOPLE, SNUGGLES, FOOD, BONES….

Dislikes: Being kept isolated

Favorite activities: EATING, WRESTLING WITH DOGGY FRIENDS, BONES

Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)? yes

Crate trained: So-so but does not like to be isolated.

Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)?  Physical fence

Walks well on a leash?  Yes, unless something he wants to sniff shows up.

Any Medical issues?  Finishing up his heartworm treatment. He will need to be kept as sedentary and calm as possible until the end of June.
