found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Scout is an adorable blue eyed, blue nosed pittie pup who was recently transferred to NLOL Chicago from Animal Care and Control. When our intake directors laid eyes on this gorgeous gal in her cage at ACC, we knew she had to be part of our dog family! After our standard careful temperament testing and evaluation, we decided she was a winner and quickly whisked her away.
Scout was originally slated to be transfered by another area rescue, but they decided not to save her once they found out she was deaf. However, NLOL Chicago believes that every dog deserves the same treatment regardless of their special needs. With the experience of placing two deaf bullies under our belt, we knew we were uniquely suited to help this little girl, so we were happy to welcome her to the club.
Just like NLOL alums Sprout and Possum, Scout will need a dedicated person or family to help her adjust to life without sound. Scout's got lots of great puppy energy. She loves going on walks with our volunteers and is in the process of learning leash manners and how to sit at corners. Scoutie makes the funniest noises which remind us of the Star Wars character Chewbacca! Because she has no concept of her vocal range, she belts out some awfully interesting sounds. It's super cute!
While our good friends at Lucky Dog are eager to board and work with sweet Scout, our goal is to find a foster or adoptive home where she can receive some one on one attention. We'd love to find a place for Scout to go where someone can give her the opportunity to blossom into a wonderful companion. Because she is deaf, there will be many challenges to overcome, but that does not mean she cannot live the same sort of life as a dog who can hear. Scout is dog friendly and very much loves her humans. She will also be taking part in our next School For The Dogs program which begins on March 4th.
Unfortunately, deafness is not uncommon in white dogs, and especially in dogs bred by irresponsible backyard breeders. Don't worry - Scoutie doesn't know that anything's wrong with her, and we're working to make her the best pup she can be! Check out www.deafdogs.orgfor more info on living with a deaf dog.
Because of Scout's breed and hearing impairment, we would prefer an applicant who has deaf dog experience and/or bully breed experience or who is a very dog savvy person. We will not adopt Scout out to a first
time dog owner. If you or anyone you know is up for this amazingly rewarding challenge, please contact us.
