Pet of the Week: Scout

by Sean Meehan February 2, 2016 at 1:35 pm 0

Scout is the Hill Pet of the Week! He’s a friendly lab/hound mix who was rescued earlier this year and can be adopted. Here’s his bio shared by Rural Dog Rescue at 733 8th St. SE and his current foster parents:

Scout is an approximately 2 year old lab/hound mix who came into the shelter as a stray. Scout arrived in D.C. on January 6th.

If you’re looking for a sweet, goofy buddy who is up for anything from a morning run to chilling on the couch, Scout is your boy! Scout loves to spend time with his people, and if he gets to meet other people and dogs while he’s doing it, that’s even better.

Scout gets along with everyone: cats, dogs, kids, and everyone else he meets. He’s house trained and crate trained and is learning to walk nicely on a leash (but it’s hard because there are so many exciting things to see and smell!). Scout can’t wait to find his forever family in the D.C. area!

Scout’s rescue was made possible by donations raised by Girl Scout Troop 3949 in Washington, D.C.

To adopt Scout or other pets from Rural Dog Rescue, see the Petfinder adoption site or visit Rural Dog Rescue’s website.
