If you like big dogs, take a look at Scout. This friendly and outgoing 3-4 year-old Border Collie mix boy found himself homeless at a county dog shelter and had no luck finding a home there so made the move to Canine Lifeline so he could relax in a foster home while he continued his search for a new home. We don’t know what other breeds might in Scout’s family tree but he is quite long-legged and, at a current weight of about 68 pounds, is on the thin side. He should be about 80 pounds when he’s at his ideal weight. Although we have no history on Scout’s previous life, he has clearly had some training as he knows some commands including sit, down, and shake hands. He also can catch treats on the fly like a pro. For a big guy, Scout walks quite well on a leash and has excellent crate manners so may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. He has gotten along well with all the other dogs he’s met since he’s been with us. Scout’s going to make a great pal for some lucky big dog lover out there. His adoption fee is $250. Scout is neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly 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. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 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.
