The Best Places to Sit, Stay + Play with Your Pooch

Dog available for adoption in Seattle: Scotty

Available for Adoption: Scotty (Homeless for One Year)

This month’s WhyNotMePet is Scotty, who has been homeless for over one year! Scotty is available for adoption in the greater Seattle area — and what better way to add joy to your home during the holidays than by giving this sweet boy the best gift ever — a forever home!


MORE ABOUT SCOTTY Scotty is a two-year-old pitbull terrier-mix who has a smile that just won’t quit, which is remarkable considering his previous situation. Scotty was rescued after being abandoned in an apartment by his previous owner. When he was found he was emaciated and starving for attention.

He loves to go for walks, playtime with his jolly ball, and lounging in the kiddy pool. Scotty does well with other dogs, but would do best in a home with no cats or children under the age of 12 due to his 70 pounds of joyful exuberance.

Scotty has been homeless for over a year, so let’s find him his forever home in time for the holidays by sharing this post with friends and family. Or, treat yourself with a new best friend!

More About #WhynotMEpets

In partnership with Pawsitive Alliance, #WhynotMEpets is a statewide campaign that gives cats and dogs that have been homeless for more than a year a greater chance of finding their forever home as quickly as possible. These are animals that would be a wonderful and loving addition to any family, but they have just been passed over for some reason.  These are the animals asking “Why not me?”
