Meet Scout

Meet Scout!

We believe this 80lb handsome hunk is about 1 year old.
He is likely a Shepard and Akita mix.

Scout is good with other dogs and children; he is also ok with dog savvy cats.
Scout is crate trained – and his crate is one of the keys to meeting new people at home – but he doesn’t need to be crated when alone or at night.
He also has excellent house manners, is house trained (he hits the door knob with his nose to come in and out), Is getting better about the leash every day, and knows most of his basic commands – his foster family says he needs to keep working on "Stay."

Scout has almost no food motivation; he eats slowly at meal-times and is a bit picky about treats but when he does finally take a treat he is very gentle.

Scout LOVES toys. His favorites are his rubber ball and his braided fleece ropes. He is still learning to share toys with other dogs right now as his first home didn’t offer any doggy friends. When he really gets to playing he forgets his size and knocks people and other dogs around, so we think older (or experienced) children and dogs of similar size or energy would be best.

Scout takes a little bit to warm up to people and isn’t a fan of being on his person, but he will snuggle next to you quite happily while he naps after a good romp in the yard or a walk through the neighborhood.

Scout is quick to defend his people if someone he doesn’t know is coming in; his foster mom has got him on a working plan for this. That said he LOVES to meet new people on his daily outings. Given his feelings about strangers we feel Scout is best suited for a single family home.

Scout is fostered in Danielson, CT
