Scout is 10 years old, about 90 pounds and appears to be a Pointer / Lab mix. I happen to think his face is ADORABLE - just look at that first picture. He was originally adopted from from Kay's Animal Shelter at the ripe old age of 6 weeks and has been owned by the same family ever since. Scout currently resides in Buffalo Grove, Illinois but his caregiver is willing to travel to the surrounding states if you are interested in adopting him. There is no fee required to adopting this great pet.
Nancy has stated that he's a loving dog, in good health and is a real 'people person' who just happens to believe he's a little lap dog. As a senior citizen Scout is lively and responsive to his people. But he has no desire to fetch a ball or chase a frisbee. He's content with a couple of good walks each day and snuggling at your side when you are relaxing. He's good with strangers and with other dogs. However he has displayed some food aggression if another dog is around. This is an issue that can be addressed, but Scout would also be happy to be your only furry child. He will bark at the sound of the doorbell but will not jump on people when you open the door. In fact this little gentleman attended training school in his youth and is quite well behaved.
If you are interested in learning more about Scout or can help in any way please contact me at AllDogsWelcome@gmx.com and I will put you in touch with his current caregiver.
UPDATE: As of 12/13/2011 Scout is still looking for a home. His caretaker reports that he has just been to the vet for a checkup where he received all his shots, had his ears cleaned, nails clipped, and dental work done. He was given a clean bill of health, had a bath and is looking even more handsome than in his picture above!
