MEET SCAMP!! Scamp has the appearance of a Treeing Tennessee Brindle Dog - a variety of Cur - but with a larger frame and bearing. His personality is like that of a Lab. He's a gentle giant - his size and character make him a companion of substance! Scamp's tail was not medically docked, rather he seems to have been born with a 3/4 size tail.
Scamp is a true gentleman, a quiet office-mate, and in the evenings, he enjoys lying just inside the patio door to take in the sounds and smells. Although he's a rabbit-chaser, Scamp accepts polite dogs of all sizes. However, he does not understand play or engage in it. Scamp is a gem and would be extremely pleased to be the only dog, and the family he joins will be fortunate, indeed.
Scamp was rescued from a situation where he continued to leave home in search of yummy food and doting humans. He was adopted for eight months but has just returned to our rescue through now fault of his own -- the adopters had a change of circumstance and are unable to keep him.
Scamp's tattered ears show that, at some point, he may have been left to fend for himself. He is treasured now and is living in a foster home where he's enjoying daily walks and has made a lovely friend in his foster sister, a "senior dog" who is quite a bit older than Scamp!
Though not a prolific shedder, Scamp LOVES to be brushed, and -- like many guys -- snacks and attention are the way to his (giant) heart!
Although Scamp looks and feels great, he's completing what we hope will be a final course of medication for Valley Fever. Scamp is fortunate to have been brought into a rescue where he was thoroughly vetted, and his illness caught in the early stages so that he could begin treatment right away.
