Elizabeth, black Labrador retriever and whippet mix
Elizabeth is a female black Labrador retriever and whippet mix being cared for at Scurvy Dog Rescue SATX.
Elizabeth gets along well with other dogs. Fear not: She's already house-trained. She is already spayed and vaccinated. Elizabeth is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
Here's what Elizabeth's friends at Scurvy Dog Rescue SATX think of her:
Elizabeth is a sweet, shy girl. She loves to play outside and loves toys. She does well with other friendly dogs and ignores cats. Once she feels secure, Elizabeth enjoys gentle human interaction. She needs an owner with a great deal of empathy and compassion to whom she can bond. Ideally, her new owner would be interested in slowly expanding Elizabeth's social experiences and building her confidence.

Scooter, border collie mix
Scooter is a sweet male border collie mix currently housed at Roxy's K-9 Rescue.
He is vaccinated and neutered. He's mastered his house-training etiquette. Scooter is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.
Notes from Scooter's caretakers:
Scooter was found very emaciated and had a broken rear leg. He has been a trooper from day one. The bone healed but it doesn't bend. That doesn't stop Scooter. He jumps on the deck, runs upstairs to his room, plays chase and gets around normally, just like the other dogs. He only barks when he is talking to you. He bounces around still like a puppy and he's just a very happy guy. He gets along with everyone.

Mouse is a little sweetheart of a dog. She walks perfectly on a leash and loves going for walks. She is great with other dogs once introduced and would do well with older children. Little Mouse is a terrific family pet and companion dog. At first meet she may seem a little shy, but give this girl 72 hours and she'll be full of kisses. When she is happy her whole body moves right along with her tail.
