Scout is an English Setter who is almost two years old. He used to live inside with a family but prior to coming into rescue had been living outside for a couple months.
Settling in at his Foster Home.
Gender: Male (Neutered)
Age: 1.5 years
Size/Weight: 46 Pounds
Breed: English Setter
Good with Children: Yes
Good with Dogs: Yes
Good with Cats: Unknown. Our veterinarian has multiple cats walking around the office and he normally just stares at them…although he’s never been off the leash around them!
House trained: Yes.
Crate trained: Yes. He goes into the crate on command.
Sleeping: Scout sleeps in his crate at night, but sometimes he whines because he really likes sleeping in a comfortable bed with his owners.
Leash trained: Yes. He does pull sometimes when he’s excited, but does very well on a leash.
Activity Level: Scout loves to play with his ball in the yard and run at the dog park. We currently have a 4 foot fence, but I think it would be better if he had a 6 foot fence or Invisible Fence. Apparently, his previous owner trained him with an invisible fence. He loves hanging out outside watching the birds and rabbits and will try to catch them
Medical History: Neutered and currently on heart worm preventative and is up-to-date on all vaccines.
Scout is an amazing dog who needs to have a stay at home person in his life. He is very loving and would prefer to be by your side all day. If you sit down, he’s asleep with his head on your lap. If you stand up, he’s walking with you. He is very well behaved and doesn’t seem to want to chew on things….not even bones or treats. He’s just interested in playing and cuddling. He hasn’t tried to bolt out a door yet, but we’ve been making sure he’s back when we open a door. He does seem a little skittish when meeting someone for the first time, but it doesn’t take him long to become friends. Scout doesn’t travel very well. He immediately lays down in the car, but seems nervous and turns into a drool machine until the ride comes to an end. Might be best if he didn’t have to travel too far when adopted.
Scout with his very happy family and new fur-sister Nellie.
