Scout is a handsome 3-year-old tricolor Aussie mix with a bob tail, who is sweet and affectionate with his people, both adults and kids. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccines and preventatives. He is a high energy boy who is good with other dog but not a fan of cats. He needs a fenced yard where he can run and play and another confident dog to live with. His foster thinks he has a lot of potential for agility or for other structured performance dog sports with appropriate training. He has been working on his leash skills and has improved markedly. However, he is reactive to cars and strange people he meets on walks, so a rural setting or quiet, low traffic neighborhood is a must. Scout has some anxiety issues and needs a lot of exercise to work out his energy. He is a big, strong boy and needs a strong leader who will provide structure and boundaries. Without enough consistent activity, he will channel his frustration into digging. He is housebroken and is well behaved in the house. He is not however crate trained and is anxious about jumping in the car, something his foster has been working on. His big drawback is his high prey drive. He absolutely cannot be around livestock‰'Ű| chickens, ducks, goats, sheep, etc. His adopter will need to be willing to continue the training that his foster has been working on. Scout wants to learn. His ideal adopter will have an active lifestyle and the time, patience and commitment to help Scout be all he can be. Scout is being fostered in Central Maine.
