What is NOT to love about Scout-a-Bout?
Scout aka Scout-a-Bout is a sweet young male English Pointer with long legs and lots of energy! He loves to run outside, but can be calm in the house.
Scout is a fun-loving, very friendly, happy-go-lucky boy. He gets along very well with everyone - dogs and people of all sizes. He is cat friendly as well.
He really does best in a large setting with plenty of room to run after birds, butterflies, and crawly things - and other dogs to play with. Scout very much LOVES fetching balls, his favorite game. Rarely do you see him without a ball in his mouth.
Scout is a good boy on a leash, understands basic commands, and wants to please.
This cute boy has a sweet face that you gotta love, and a fun disposition to go with it. He is ONE GREAT PUP that the whole family can enjoy, and very much loved by many that have had the privilege to know him.
Scout would love to meet someone who will appreciate his goofy nature and new skills and help him along as he grows into just an awesome Pointer!
