Scooby’s family adopted him around 15 years ago when he was just a few months old. He came wandering out of their garage one day when they came back from grocery shopping, and after scanning him for a microchip and finding none, they decided to make him a member of their family. Ever since then, Scooby has been obsessed with everyone in his family and makes that known to them every day.
“He is loyal,” Brian Peter, Scooby’s dad, told The Dodo. “We spend a lot of time outside, and he is always by our side, shadowing us no matter what we are doing.”
Peter and his family live on a property that originally belonged to his great-grandparents. He, his wife, and their kids live in one house, and his parents live in another, and in order to make sure he gets to spend time with everyone, Scooby travels back and forth between the two houses almost every day. He always takes the same route — and has walked it so many times that he’s left a permanent path indented in the grass.
