Scrappy is a 9 year old male Yorkshire Terrier who was surrendered to ACC for being ill.
Around strangers Scrappy is friendly, outgoing and plays exuberantly with adults and children. Scrappy has lived with children ages 3 and 4, around them he is relaxed and playful. Scrappy has not spent time with other dogs or cats so it is unknown how he will react to them.
Scrappy has never bitten another person or animal and will hide when he hears loud sounds form outside. Scrappy is not bothered when people touch his food or bowl while he is eating, takes a treat/toy away , pushes/pulls him off of the furniture or holds/restrains him. Scrappy is fearful when being given a bath. Scrappy was taken to the groomers when being brushed and having his nails trimmed so it is unknown how he will react to those events. If an unfamiliar person approached Scrappy’s family or home Scrappy will smell them and walk away.
