CHR Policies: We do not adopt outside the DC Metro area or to homes with children under 11 years old. No exceptions. Visit our policies page for more information. 

Scooter is a sweet Shih Tzu/Lhasa, but he is fearful of strangers.  He needs time to warm up to new people, which is not uncommon to see. CHR is asking that his new owner have experience with fearful type dogs.  While this cutie co-exists with other dogs, he can get jealous for attention, so we hope to find him a home without other dogs.  We know that it may be asking a lot to ask that, so please share his profile on your social media. 


More details on his more positive personality traits are coming soon!
