For those of you not on Facebook:
Once again, our military personnel are in need of assistance. Scouts human is set to enter the services in a month and sadly there is no place for Scout to go. While Scouts Grandma and Grandpa love him dearly, they too are going through some difficult times and find themselves relocating as a result.
THIS DOG NEEDS OUR HELP ASAP (while it SEEMS like we have time to work with, we all know time moves too quickly in these situations)
Please contact: [script removed]
Please consider this ready to go home dog that has already been through so much.
Information as requested from Grandma:
Scout is just a big baby that loves to give & receive attention....He would be a great companion--even possibly a "recovery" animal for a returning troubled veteran! He does not like being alone & thinks he should be with me or my husband--even in the bathroom!! LOL
Is he crate trained? NOT THAT I KNOW (WE DON'T HAVE A CRATE) HE DOES SLEEP ON A FOAM EXERCISE MAT & GOES THERE ON COMMAND.
Is he social with other dogs? YES--HE'D SLEEP & SNUGGLE WITH OUR AMERICAN ESKIMO--BUT SHE'S "NOT INTO SNUGGLING"
Does he like cats? NO--HE HAS CHASED SEVERAL CATS OUT OF OUR YARD
Does he like children? YES--BUT I WOULD SUGGEST OLDER CHILDREN DUE TO HIS SIZE
Here is a list of his vacines, etc. all performed on 11/10/2009
Annual Canine Physical
Rabies Vac. (1 yr)
My son rescued a 3 legged-full blooded-German Shorthair Pointer that was due to be put down.
This poor boy has had a very rough life--herniated umbilical cord, herniated testess & was shot by a drunk hunter at 5 1/2 mos. old. He is now 2 years old.
I am in the process of posting flyers at the vets, pet supply stores, feed stores, etc.
As I indicated to Jennifer at AdoptAPet, Scout did get a courtesy posting from the texasgsp organization.
He is an incredibly loving & intelligent dog. He is now an indoor dog for the most part. However, he has no problem running, fetching, etc. He knows his commands (sit, stay, drop, etc.), but "heal" & walking on a leash are a bit of a challenge---but only due to the momentum required to walk on only 3 legs.
He thinks he is a lap dog & loves to snuggle on the couch & warm your feet.
He gets along great with other dogs, but does not appear to care for cats. Our neurotic, spoiled rotten 11 yr. old American Eskimo has adapted to her new friend quiet well. Scout (the GSP) would snuggle with her if she would allow it!!! LOL
He would do well with older children or would make a great companion to someone.
