PARIS — Scooby, a German shepherd mix is available for adoption at Responsible Pet Care at 9 Swallow Road.

The 2-year-old is a transfer from Responsible Pet Care’s partner shelter in Puerto Rico. He is a very active dog, loves to be in the company of children, but needs to be the only pet in the house.

He is very smart and a quick learner. Since his arrival at the shelter, Scooby has learned to walk on leash. He has also learned some basic commands and he is crate trained.

The ideal person or family for Scooby will keep him busy with outdoor activities; and be willing to continue his training.

Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills is a no-kill, nonprofit shelter and adoption center for cats and dogs, and the holding area for stray dogs for 12 towns in Oxford County.
