Scout is one of CBHR dog Hope’s puppies, and the first born of Hope’s litter. She had a full hour alone with her mama before her siblings arrived. She is the smallest (half the size of the largest, Atticus) but easily the most determined. She’s Most Likely To Succeed! Scout is incredibly clever and observant; the first to master the stairs, notice the ceiling fan, and to pickup eating solid food. She’s the mirror of her mama Hope, with similar markings, striking black coat, a crown on her forehead and black freckles. She’ll be small like her mama but she makes up for it with confidence and determination. Scout is the most laid back of the group; she’s not typically an instigator of puppy rumbles, but has no problem taking care of herself when she’s covered with several pups twice her size.

As an adopter, it’s important to know about mama, Hope, too She’s an absolutely strikingly beautiful dog with the most remarkable personality and loving nature. Her vet calls her super woman, given her ability to deliver 7 gorgeous healthy puppies and nurture them so lovingly and confidently among people considering the environment she was rescued from. She’s a basset mix; her feet and howl are definitively basset. But her eyes and face appear to come from a springer spaniel. She’s about 35 pounds, and short/compact for a basset mix.

Hope’s pups and their mom are living with 3 “house dogs” – a beagle mix, cocker mix, and chihuahua mix. They are being introduced to people daily and hopefully given the best opportunity to be ready for your loving care and training to help them become wonderful dogs. They are loved to the moon and back and will be missed so much when it’s time for them to graduate to their forever homes.
