About Scotch

In order to alleviate the need to bring an animal into the shelter environment, The Anti-Cruelty Society has developed the new Home-to-Home Shelter Bypass service to help people find new accommodations for their pets privately. THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.

Scotch has been a part of our family for about 8 years. He is an extremely sweet tempered and loyal dog who loves belly rubs. He does exceptionally well with other dogs, both large and small. He has been in our home with another medium sized dog and, although he made it clear that he was the alpha dog (being first in the home), all interactions with our second dog are playful and respectful. He has spent time at doggie daycare and dog parks. When around other dogs he spends most of the time sniffing other dogs or their markings instead of playing or interacting. He is very aggressive towards cats and other small fluffy animals. Scotch does have phases of separation anxiety.
We have two small children and have never had an issue with Scotch interacting with the children. He is protective of them. They have played with his ears, tail, and skin, tugging and pulling, and there has never been an issue. He is very sensitive towards his nails being touched and that is the only thing that may trigger a negative reaction from him (growling).
In our care, Scotch has always been a healthy dog with no need to take medication. We got him from the West Suburban Humane Society, where he received obedience training. He is house trained, crate trained, and walks reasonably well on a leash (loves to sniff with a bit of pulling).
While Scotch and Teq have lived together many years, I would not say that they have to be adopted together. They get along well, but are not in an emotionally bonded state.
Scotch has been a well loved companion to our family for about 8 years. We unexpectedly found out that we are having a 3rd child. When the child is born we will have 3 kids, 3 and under. Our time is going to grow very short, shorter than it already is. We are having to sell our house and relocate to a smaller one. We do not want to have the dogs live with us in a situation where they barely get exercise or attention. It is truly unfair to them. We are looking to find a new family for them that can devote the time, attention, and financial assistance that we can no longer provide.
