My story

Meet Scout, a handsome Hound currently looking for a forever home, or a foster-to-adopt situation.

Scout is a young, happy, energetic and playful pup, estimated to be about 18 months old, weighing about 48 lbs. He loves to spend his days running and playing in the yard. Scout is learning basic commands….and has made a great deal of progress.

Scout is a dominant male and would not do well with another male dog in the home (unless possibly a very submissive senior male). This loveable pup would be best as an only dog in an all-adult (humans) home. However a submissive female would be ok; he has done well in a foster home with a submissive female. Scout would not do well with cats or other small animals.

An ideal home for Scout is one knowledgeable of and experienced with the personality of Hounds as well as their temperament and habits. A secure, fenced yard is ideal for Scout. He absolutely loves to run and play, all very typical behaviors for a young boy like Scout! He likely would do fine with children over the age of 12 years old, but he would be too energetic and strong for younger children. As with all of our dogs, we are looking for adopters with a solid and consistent vet history for current and/or past dogs

Scout is fully vetted, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on year-round heartworm prevention, neutered and microchipped.

Why adoption is a great option

Scout, a Barrington Hills Hound (Unknown Type)/Mixed Breed (Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Mixed Breed (Medium) for sale in Barrington Hills, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Mixed Breed (Medium) dog from a breeder in Barrington Hills.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barrington Hills already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Barrington Hills breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Hound (Unknown Type)/Mixed Breed (Medium) breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type)/Mixed Breed (Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington Hills paves the way for another one to be saved.
