MEET SCOUT! CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO Scout is a GORGEOUS albeit goofy English Coonhound who came to the Marion Animal Shelter as a emaciated, scared dog wearing a hunting tracking collar. His life was in danger as the shelter was full - but fortunately for Scout, Bobbie from Silverwalk Hounds Sancturary stepped up just in the nick of time and took sweet Scout into rescue. With Bobbie's care and some obedience training to build his confidence, Scout has become a much more well-adjusted boy. He knows a few commands to boot - such as 'sit' and 'down.' At Bobbie's sanctuary he enjoys indoor living with a doggie door to the fenced in yard. He will never make a good hunting dog though as he is scared of loud noises and prefers the couch and watching TV to the great outdoors. Scout is now ready for his forever home - preferrably one that loves the sound of a hound baying at the moon:) Scout's ideal home will have a securely fenced in yard and be on the quiet side. Scout loves to go for walks (on leash) - but is also happy hanging out in the home with his human companions.
