All about Scout
Today’s domestic dog is still closely related to the wolf. Like all wolves living in a pack, dogs must be part of a stable family and feel safe. Most domestic behavioral problems occur when the dog is confused about how to act/behave in different situations such as your home or out on a walk.
It is recommended that you keep Fido confined no matter his age for at least the first month in your home. This will allow him to settle in more comfortably and adapt to your lifestyle. At the same time, confinement will reduce such misbehaviors as chewing and separation anxiety.
Here are a few general rules to help you to prevent misbehaviors when you bring Fido home:
- Susan McConnell

Scout came from an animal shelter in Vancouver, B,C, He was 9 months old when I got him. He is quite a shy dog but very obedient. He appears to understand English. His list of commands is quite lengthy. His most endearing quality is the way he comes over and lays his head down on your lap. His biggest fear is wind. He doesn't like strangers, or children which is unusual for this kind of dog.
Unfortunately I have recently found out he has bone cancer. There is a tumor pushing on the back of his nose causing him to have nose bleeds. The lump is starting to appear on the top of his head by his eye. I have had Scout for 6 years and will miss him dearly. I have recently moved onto an orchard, which is slightly remote. He makes me feel safe. I am waiting for signs like him being unable to sleep because of his nose, then I have to put him to sleep.
I have a small puppy now. She is a Shepherd/Lassie cross. I am hoping she will pick up on his great behaivior . Her name is Gypsy (see Gypsy). Scout doesn't have much patience for her, but she is very cute.
