“You can’t buy love, but you CAN rescue it!”
This story begins like many other love stories…
It was love at first sight when Maggie met Scotch at an adoption event. She loved his mellow personality and how he came over and licked her hand. She immediately became a pile of mush! Maggie knew at that moment that she was going to be his mom. She wanted to give him the best, most loved life possible. She called her husband, Shaun, and they went the next day to pick him up. They look back at that day and think just how lucky
they were to be able to adopt Scotch.
From what they were told, their little boy had a rough start. Once Pal Rescue LA
finally got him, he had a broken right leg and the left side of his pelvis was shattered. He was not in good shape, but thanks to Freddy and the angels at the rescue, he was able to get the surgery he needed, which was completely covered by donations. The surgery went well and after the metal plates and about a dozen screws were in place, he was put in a cast for 3 months. After that time was up, he was ready for adoption!
Scotch is such a sweet, mellow, playful pup and Maggie doesn’t think he has ever looked back to whatever horrible place he came from. He is a pup that is so busy enjoying life that he has no time to think about any of the horrific things that happened to him in his past, and thanks to Pal Rescue LA, he is a survivor!
Scotch spends his days either with his mom or dad at work, getting lots of love from everyone. He also enjoys chicken treats, Greenies, showing off his fashionable bandana’s by Coco and Pistachio and napping! He lives the life that he has always deserved.
