Scooter is a three-year-old Wheaten Terrier mix adopted from Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption earlier this year. He was extremely timid when he first came home (he would even urinate out of fear when strangers tried to approach him), but his wonderful family took the time and patience to work with him, and he has emerged from his shell a perfect gentleman! He’s ridiculously laid back and can go to work with his dad where he lies quietly under the desk. At home he’s still very calm and pretty much never barks, but has a playful streak and a complete repertoire of tricks he does for treats.

For his session he came right up to me (a testament to all the work his new family has done!), then proceeded to pose like he was in a furniture commercial in every room of his beautiful home. He loves to nap under chairs and the coffee table, and likes to sprawl out on the bed for a belly rub or a good chew with his favorite toy. It’s unfathomable to think someone could discard a dog like this (or any dog, really), and he is such a poster boy for all the amazing dogs out there in rescues!
