Scout - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from K9 Lifeline Rescue Inc., Genoa City, WI.

We found Scout online while looking for our 2nd rescue dog. We had been looking for a small dog, but Scout (AKA Ricky at the time) caught our attention. He was a beautiful Chocolate Lab that had a headline of Help! He was to be put to sleep in a kill shelter if he wasn't fostered or adopted as the K9 Lifeline didn't currently have a spot for him. My 7 year old daughter read the information and began to cry ..."We need to save him" Needless to say, an email went out and we met Scout within the week. Scout was 10-15 lbs under weight and his fur was orange from being outside for his first year. He had kennel cough and we didn't care. We fell in love immediately and the love has only grown. He is the most loving dog I have ever known. We are thankful everyday for finding him on Petfinder. <3
