All in the Family


Border Collie / Jack Russell Terrier
March 25, 2012

Meet my little man, Scout who is currently about 16 weeks old. He was born around Thanksgiving Day, 2011. Through an outstanding team of volunteers at Delaware Puppy Rescue, he was saved from a very unscrupulous puppy mill in South Carolina, where he and his entire litter of puppies were about to be put down since they were not purebred. One of his adorable brothers was hit by a car there and left for dead, later requiring one back leg and hip to be amputated. Not to worry, though, at only a few weeks of age he and his three handsome brothers made a long and arduous journey through five states with various transport volunteers and foster parents. They have all now found forever homes, just as Scout has a loving home with our family and plenty of room to run and play as he grows up alongside our children. As a Border Collie- Jack Russell Terrier mix, he is as smart as a whip, sweet as honey and very active and fun-loving. His favorite hobbies include hiking the rolling hills of Maryland, playing fetch, herding the kids around the backyard, and eating the cat's food. He is still a young pup, but every day he is learning how to be a good dog and fit in as part of our family. I am so happy we could give him a second chance at life and a lifetime of love and affection.

Sing your heart out, Scout! You and your siblings landed on your feet. Kudos to your humans, and all the humans involved, in making sure you ended up right where you need to be! Long may you run, darling boy. Hugs from Oliver & Henry, and their Mum, in London, Ontario.

A million thanks for adopting this precious boy, you will be rewarded with years of loyalty and devotion. I just adopted my third rescue and couldn't be happier. If only we could adopt them all!!! Kisses and bikkies to Scout and his canine siblings!!

I am so glad that you rescued Scout. I have never been able to comprehend the horrors of puppy mills, and the people (?) that run them. Loved your comment about herding the children in the backyard! May you and your family be blessed with many years of love and companionship from this sweet pup.
