Scout was a very sick, stray pup who was helped by a good citizen who worked to win his trust and a group of rescue volunteers who jumped in and made the rescue happen. He quickly joined the Blue Dog family by way of Austin Animal Center and started the long recovery process. Scout came to us with a severe case of demodex mange, yeast and bacterial skin and ear infections, heartworms, and malformed hip sockets in both legs due to genetics. He is making great progress and has completed treatment for demodex, heartworms, and the infections, as well as surgery on both hips to ensure good, pain free stability for the future. The last hurdle to be addressed is a persistent allergy that is causing excessive itching. Scout is now under the care of a dermatologist and has begun allergy shots to better manage this problem. Scout engages well with his foster family dogs and humans and enjoys all of their companionship, walks and playtime. He is a smart little guy who aims to please and will be a great joy to his forever family. At present, any donations to help with Scout's treatment are greatly appreciated and will be used wisely.
