Not feeling appreciated at home? Scout is the perfect dog for you! The vet guesses Scout to be a 3 year old Border Collie mix but he acts much younger. He is a medium sized dog that weighs 41 pounds. He will greet you when you come home and give you hugs. No one has broken the news to him that he can’t be a lap dog. He loves to snuggle on the couch. He will help you with your fitness goals as he loves to go for walks and play fetch. He is a perfect angel at night and would love to snuggle in bed if able to. He currently lives with cats and small dogs and does well with them. He would love a playmate but also really loves his humans. Smaller children can sometimes startle Scout, so he'd prefer a house with kids 10 and older! He uses his doggie door and does not have accidents in the house. He likes to chew so it works well to leave him bones and toys to play with. He has done well with being kenneled during part of the day. He does have a lot of energy so he would do best in a home with a fenced yard. Scout is such a loyal dog with so much love to share. Please consider letting him be your sidekick and giving him a forever home. If interested in adopting Scout apply at purple-paws.org. The adoption fee is $200- this helps cover the cost of vaccinations, spay/neuters, and preventatives.
