7 years ago I got a call to get these dogs who were living outside. Turns out they were purchased for thousands of dollars and made to live outside for 5 years. Based on their demeanor and body language, they were likely yelled at often and possibly hit. One of the dogs even had a muzzle scar. We found the the dogs were able to be separated and both flourished with love. Scrappy was a loving dog who was a bit scared. He found a family that was perfect for him. Unfortunately 7 years later, he ended up with cancer that ended up taking him from us. We are so sorry to his family for their loss but are forever grateful to them for the love they provided him all these years. Rest in Peace Scrappy.
