Scout (formerly named Jumper) has been doing great. Ever since I started fostering him back at the end on March, I’ve been taking him to the dog park every day after work. He loves running around with other dogs, chasing tennis balls and getting plenty of attention from the other dog owners at the park. I also take him to a much larger dog park in the suburbs on weekends where he’s able to get more space to romp around and socialize on a weekly basis with my sister’s dog Bailey (small black and white one in one of the attached photos with Scout). They are great buds! I allso attached another photo of Scout and myself at that larger dog park where another pal Riley (a wire-haired terrier) got into the picture.
We are currently enrolled in obedience classes with K9 University so we have been coming back to PAWS every Saturday for that. He is very food motivated, so that helps. He is also very smart and has been picking up the lessons/commands quickly, although I’m sure every “parent” thinks their “child” is exeptionally smart. Scout is just a doll, always looking to please people, and will do anything for attention and affection! Who can resist that face with those ears?!
He has also been getting better around his new older brother Hobbes, who is an 11 year old tan and cream colored tabby cat. Hobbes was very curious about the dog and had been discovered sprawling out in the dog’s bed early on, so Scout has followed suit and can often be found curled up trying to squeeze in to Hobbes’ bed (another attached photo).
