Meet Scotty, our pet of the week!

Mass Appeal

Scotty is a very sweet-natured Lhasa Apso/poodle mix who came to Dakin a few weeks ago in need of some care.  He had bladder stones (Dakin performed surgery to remove them) and other issues that have healed, but he does have a skin infection.  Scotty’s on skin medication and will probably need to have medicated baths on occasion (they’re easy to give at home, or you can ask your vet or groomer to do this).  Fortunately, Scotty’s got a terrific disposition which makes caring for him super easy.  He’s calm and quiet, and would be a loving, affectionate pet.  Come meet this handsome fellow at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
