Meet Scout, an absolutely adorable 4-5 month-old Hound mix pup who makes fast friends wherever he goes. This very photogenic pup (he loves the camera!) came to us as a skinny puppy from an overcrowded county dog shelter. We have no history on his previous life but are pretty sure that the first few months of his life were probably pretty tough. He’s been enjoying life in a foster home for the last month or so and is now in great shape and loving life. Scout LOVES other dogs and enjoys playing chase and wrestling with his fellow foster dogs so he would really like having a canine pal or two in his new home who could handle puppy energy. He is friendly with all people that he’s met and is working on keeping all four paws on the ground when meeting new people. His enthusiasm sometimes still gets the best of him but he does know the sit command and will eagerly sit for a treat. He’s a smart boy who learns things quickly so should be fun to work with on obedience training. Scout settles down nicely in his crate after playtime is over and keeps his crate clean as long as he gets outside about every four hours or so during the day. He walks quite nicely on a leash for a kid and is looking forward to having lots of fun walks and hikes with his new family. Scout weighs about 27 pounds currently and we expect he’ll be 50+ pounds once full-grown as he’s got some big feet to grow into. His adoption fee is $350. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Scout. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
