​​​Hope Anger Management, LLC.

Hi! My name is Hope A. Scott. I’m a precious, tiny and independent doggie. They say that I march to my own little drum and have nicknamed me “cutie” because of my cute prancing/hopping walk. I like my bed and rest in it throughout the day and sleep there peacefully in my office.  I’m a lap dog, but I am a very sweet girl and a nice companion for my mommy's clients.
