The first Scottie is in Wyoming. The post’s on Craig’s List, which will likely take it down soon as they don’t allow pet sales or even giveaways. Scottie News has reproduced it:

The second Scottie, Braveheart, is in New Jersey with the Helping Animals Rescue Team. Here’s his story:
My name is BraveHart and i was brought to a kill shelter by my own family. They didnt want me anymore. So a rescue who was at the shelter took me to get my shots up to date and test me for heartworms. Im negative by the way! I am really good in the car and i like to have my head out the window with the wind blowing in my hair. My hair was all knotted up so when i got groomed they had to shave off my Scottie cut except for my beard. But i feel much better now. My family did not brush me at all. I was very good for the groomer, even when she cleaned the goo off my face and found i had a little sore that was irritating me. I dont really like getting my legs shaved or my nails done. But i tolerate it. Im bossy with big dogs, so i curl my lip at them. But smaller dogs i sniff and hop around. I was really good for the vet and didnt bite. In fact with all the prodding and poking, shaving, bathing and examining i was so very good. I like people very much.
I was not abandoned for behavior problems. I guess my family just didnt want to feed and groom me anymore. They said i was three years old. The vet said i look closer to 5 but i could have just had a rough first three years.
I would like a home that wont abandon me.
