Happy Tails: Scooby Tells His Story

Happy Tails: Scooby Tells His Story

Hello – my name is Scooby!

I am 1 year and 7 months old.  I was adopted by Evan Roberts on July 16, 2016 at the Clark County Humane Society.  My original home was the Oktibbeha County Humane Society, but I was transferred up to Wisconsin to the Clark County Humane Society to find my forever home.

Life in Wisconsin definitely different from life in Mississippi, but I’m loving life outside the shelter.

As soon as I got ‘dopted, I quickly learned that I loved the water.  This was my first afternoon at my new home and I found the perfect spot to rest in.  Whenever I see water, I run for it! I also learned that my favorite food is Cheerios–they’re delicious!

I have had to adapt to the Wisconsin winter.  Evan bought this nice sweater for me to wear in the cold weather.  It helps keep me nice and cozy!

This picture is one of Evan and I.  Evan says that I am much better behaved than I was when he initially adopted me.  I used to bark and bark and bark all the time – but do not do that anymore. Evan helped me feel so comfortable in my new home, that I don’t need to bark any more!

Evan and I love going for walks together and riding on the 4-wheeler to check out the woods.  My spot is sitting on the back rack, but I also like to just follow him around when he rides. I like spending time with Evan.  My life is very good in Wisconsin. 

When Evan first saw me at the Humane Society, there was an immediate connection.  I reminded him of a previous dog he had.  We went outside for a while and when we came back in I immediately plopped down on Evan’s lap.  We really hit it off from there. 

I am very lucky to have found a good family, and I hope you’ll adopt some of my friends, who are still waiting to find their forever homes!
