Scout is a housetrained 7 year old Golden Lab mix. His family say's he's as faithful and as fun for the kids as O' Yeller. He's grown up as a companion to children 4 - 10 years old and he's been involved in all of their activities ... even jumping on the trampoline. We've been told these are "tough, country kids" that enjoy a powerful, goofy companion so we should explain that Scout might be a bit too much fun for some small children. The only thing Scout enjoys more than tagging along with the kids is romping with other dogs. He is super friendly all of the time, except with cats and bad guys. Scout will bark when strangers approach but welcomes them warmly when introduced. Like O' Yeller, Scout is the kind of dog someone will be telling their grandchildren about someday.
