Hello my name is Scout. I am a three year old, 40 lb Border Collie mix. I did not do well at the shelter and I am so happy to be in a home with my humans. I am energetic and love to play with other dogs. I also do not mind cats and tend to leave them alone unless I can get them to play with me which is a fail at my house. I will bark when someone comes to the door but I will be friendly once acknowledged. I just want to be loved. I am still working on not jumping up on people. I love my humans and they make me so excited. It doesn’t matter if they are gone for hours or just a few minutes. I will still be very happy to see them. I love to follow them wherever they go. My foster parents say I should have been named Shadow. I use my doggie door when I need to go outside and have not had any accidents in the house. I can be trusted to be left in the house while my foster parents are at work, as long as they put up their shoes and leave me some chew toys or bones. I also enjoy sleeping with my foster parents and can be trusted to be left out at night. I do not enjoy being kenneled and will cry. I have been told I will settle down after awhile in the kennel but my current placement does not have to kennel me at all. Since I have a lot of energy I would do best if I could get daily walks or have a yard to play in. Once I get over my excitement I will calm down and snuggle on the couch. I know how to sit and am working on other commands. My foster parents tell me I am such a sweet dog.
