Meet Scout


Scout (formerly known as Shakunta) is an all-around fantastic dog. She’s mischievous, clever, playful, confident and has a lovely sense of humor. She would make an ideal companion for an outdoor enthusiast who is looking for a dog who is up for adventures of all kinds. Click the link on this page to see in action!

Scout is a good-hearted girl who is longing to join up with the right person. She is very affectionate with shelter staff and readily accepts new friends. She is remarkably attentive and eager-to-please, which makes her very easy to train, especially with the help of treats. This good girl is already an expert at the “Sit” command and walks/runs very well on leash. She enjoys long walks and hikes, playing in the water, watching the passing scenery from the car window. Could she be the perfect travel buddy?

Though she’s adaptable and good-natured, Scout will not be happy without a large yard to play in as well as plenty of daily exercise. She’s not a dog who can spend hours cooped up alone indoors. She gets along very well with other confident dogs who aren’t put off by her enthusiastic play style and might do well with the right canine companion. We don’t know her history with cats.

In short, Scout is the kind of dog who knows how to enjoy life to the full. If she sounds like your perfect match, come on down to the Ranch to meet her today!
