If you are interested in Scout or any of our sweeties, please fill out our application.
Please note: we do not have a physical locaiton where the dogs are housed. They are in foster homes with families and our expectation is that you will meet the dog, once approved, in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
This handsome boy finds himself in need of a new home because his dad has a change in living arrangements which can not include Scout. We are heartbroken for Scout because we thought he finally had found his "happily ever after".
These are some things he has learned about Scout in the last year or so.
Scout is one of the move lovable canines there is! He is about 5 years old and is a 60 pound boxer / plotthound mix. Even though he was originally a southern dog, don't let that fool you because Scout loves the snow!
Scout is crate trained (using the command: ‘go to bed’). If he is left roaming the house he will help himself to the trash if left in his path. He will sometimes just crawl into
his crate, especially if there’s a thunderstorm or fireworks going off. When other dogs are around, he eats in his crate.
Scout does need an active home, or a large yard to play in but you have to be aware that he is very prey driven so a fenced in yard is best. This past winter on the days I didn’t get him out for a walk, I taught him a few new commands, most he learned within 3-5 days – he is very treat
motivated and learns the best when you have a good supply of treats nearby.
This past year, Scout has had 2 other canine companions that visited on a regular basis, a Boston Terrier and a German Sheppard. Scout is not keen on sharing his food or toys with other dogs (however will not mind sharing with his humans).
Scout loves learning new things, he’s a very
quick learner. Here are some things he knows:
Sit, Lay, and Wait. He is leash trained and walks by your side without pulling. He is just starting to learn to run by your side. He will get into his crate with the command, "go to bed" or jump on the human bed with "go to sleep." He loves to ride in the jeep and will "shake", "turn around" and lay sideways on command. He gives kisses on command, and can be quite exuberant in his greetings so he might knock over a little child with his excitement, however he is very good with kids.
Scout is too excitable with cats or small animals to live safely with them.
