Featured Rescue - Scooter the Dachshund

I always wonder at how many Dachshund's there are available for adoption through rescue. Petfinder alone has 4,079 listed today. Certain breeds are always flooding the doors of rescue organizations.

Today's featured rescue is Scooter. I wonder how many people choose the dog they want to adopt based on the name?? It's how I came across this guy to feature; cute name. Let that be a lesson to all rescues out there!! Use cute names.

Thanks for sharing all the great pets on your blog. A lot of babies need a place to call home. Love your enthusiasm. Scotter is so so cute.

Aw, so cute!

I always hear the excuse for people buying from petstores or BYBer or those horrid online puppymills that "there are no small dogs in shelters." All they have to do is take a peek at Petfinder or their local shelter!

I agree! Cute names are a must. At our Shelter the intake people are beyond belief in their inability to come up with names. Here are some of the "winners":

--Spot
--Brown Dog
--Mama
--This Dog (I kid you not!)
