Hi, I’m Mortimer a 10 pound super happy senior (est DOB 1/8/2005) cute cuddle bug. I’m marked “Special Needs” but that just means for the right family I’ll be that special member who gives them love and wants to be with them all the time. My previous owner passed away and there was no room with the family, so I was turned over to animal control who contacted SCP to give me a second chance. I was dirty, flea-infested, confused, and tired but look at me now! I really would like a quiet, uncluttered home with someone at home most of the time to let me out and make sure I’m safe. Oh, and someone who LOVES a dog in their lap - that’s 100% me! My foster says I’m as sweet as can be, good with cats, other dogs and older children who understand my limitations and will know to keep things in their place so I won’t run into them. I’m crate trained, but my preferred place is next to my human where I know I’m safe and loved. If you’re looking for a happy, sweet lap dog that is willing to get the most out of life even if it throws you a few challenges, then I’m your guy.
If you are interested in me, please send an email to to get more information on how to fill out an application and have a great meet and greet to see if we are a match made in heaven.
