Scout is a tall and lanky, extremely sweet and gentle, 11-month-old, 53-pound, tan and white Collie/Boxer/Shepherd-mix with gorgeous warm brown eyes looking for a loving guardian. This sweet boy looks right into your eyes and heart. He came from a home where he lived with another dog, a cat and a four-year-old boy. The family was in turmoil and had to let go of their latest canine acquisition. Scout is perfectly housebroken. He is typically well-behaved in the home and loves to cuddle up in a soft bed. He loves going on walks, always looking up into my eyes for praise and reassurance. He lived in a home with a lot of loud voices and abuse, so a raised voice or hand makes him nervous. He's a very loving and sensitive guy. Scout is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, fecal and heartworm-tested. He is being fostered in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Petraits.
