My Dog is My Hero Because…
Scooter is a special dog. He has some very special needs that have forced me to learn patience. Scooter was diagnosed with a type of doggy Down Syndrome. He is a very fearful dog who has trouble adapting to new people and especially new situations. But boy, does he try hard to do his best to make all of us in my family happy. We love him very much even with all his problems and are very happy we chose to adopt him!
