Meet Scooby! A sweet pup who had a rough go in life. He was found on the streets of Mexico, living alone in a cardboard box next to a fruit stand. The fruit stand owners ensured he had food and water, but they couldn’t do anything else for him. Scooby had a sister who was always with him, but sadly, she was hit by a car. It was only a matter of time before he was hit by a car too.


Despite losing his sister and living conditions, Scooby was always loving and affectionate. The stray pup needed a home where he could flourish. A rescue group found out about Scooby and took him in. He was then flown to the States. That’s when Ari walked into his life.


Ari, who lives in Salt Lake City, adopted Scooby. The pooch went from the year-round summer streets of Mexico to a beautiful snow-covered playland. Scooby didn’t just adjust to the cold winters– he LOVES the snow. Scooby has found his happily ever after! He’s loved and cherished! Ari says in the video, “I can’t imagine life without him.”

Thank you to Scooby’s rescuers and Ari for giving the precious dog a second chance at life! We are elated to see the once-homeless pup thriving in his new digs. Check him out in the video below!
