Meet The Arlington 16: Scout nka Skittles

Scout is one of the Arlington 16 puppies found in a box near a dumpster back in November. She was always the most timid and fearful of the bunch. It is this fear that seems to keep her from enjoying life like a puppy should. Scout is a gorgeous girl. She LOVES other dogs; in fact she will need another confident dog to make her more comfortable. She developed junvenile cataracts but has had surgery and while she has some medications that she must use for a while, she is now able to see. She often barks or growls at new people from her hiding place with her tail between her legs. She is mostly potty trained, but every once in a while she is too scared to go outside and must be carried out. She is being fostered by a trainer, where she is challenged daily to build confidence. The ideal adopter for Miss Scout will be very patient and offer a calm, quiet and predictable environment. Scout currently seems to do best with women, but we'd love to find a home that includes a patient male influence so as to not limit her exposure. A home without young children would be best as Scout really just needs to be allowed to come out of her shell on her own terms. We need a patient female to give this baby love and time to discover that life does not have to be so scary. Once she starts to feel comfortable in her surroundings, she shows a super playful, bouncy dog. Her smile is contagious, you just have to help her get there.
