********************************************************************************************************
Name: Scout
Age: 9 months as of 12/9/18
Activity Level: Medium/High
Things I do in my free time: Chew on toys, run around, play with foster dog siblings, go on walks
Things I know: Sit, crate trained, takes treats gently, leave it/drop it
Things I am learning: Off/not jumping on people/furniture, potty training
Kids: Overall he is pretty gentle in regards to treats, etc. and isn’t overly nippy, but he does like to jump still so definitely recommend guidance and supervision as he can get very excited
Dogs: Pretty good with proper intros
Cats: Out of state foster said he chases/plays with cats with no intent of hurting them
Size: ~35 pounds
Car rides: Does fine in the backseat, but does try to get up front; otherwise rides well in a crate

Additional Info from foster parent: Scout is a short, stocky little man with adorable ears that stick up straight. He can be a big ball of energy, except when he’s ready to snuggle. He loves to play with toys and his foster doggie siblings. He is still learning how to read their body language though when they do not want to play. Sometimes he will bark at them trying to get them to play which isn’t always appreciated. However, when it is play time he does just fine, and he has no issues while walking past other dogs on walks. He does super well in his crate with a bed and blanket. He just curls up or sprawls out and sleeps. He can make it overnight and during the day without a peep or needing a potty break. He has had a few potty accidents in the house as he is still learning how to let us know he needs to go out, but he is very good about not going in his crate and knows to go while he’s outside. We are still working on solidifying some basic obedience manners, but he is definitely food motivated which is helping with that. He is not a fan of the hair dryer when foster mom is drying her hair in the morning, so we are working on not barking at it. So far it seems Scout really feeds on the energy in the house and responds more to a calming correction when he gets overly excited to bring him back down, i.e. have your hands on him gently instead of trying to block him as he might get mouthy otherwise. Overall, Scout just wants to be loved and with the proper structure will continue to thrive and make a wonderful companion.
