About Scout

Adoption Fee: $50
German Shepherd mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

$50 Adoption fee! Scout is a shy sweet pup who needs to build a little trust in humans before being friends. He was a victim of abuse in the orchard he was found in, and witnessed one of his dog friends being severely hurt by a human. He will warm up and become cuddly and loving, but definitely needs a gentle hand and kind voice from his adoptive humans. He has shown no signs of aggression when scared, just cowers down or runs and hides. The perfect home for Scout would be one on the quieter side, with a few humans that like to cuddle.
