About Scout (Special Medical Need)

  • Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)
  • Species: Dog
  • General Color: Black with Tan, Yellow or Fawn
  • Current Age: 6 Years 2 Months (best estimate)
  • Housetrained: No
SCOUT was brought into a local shelter as a stray, and left unclaimed by her owner. After transferring to MOGS, it became very clear just how traumatic her prior life had been.

Scout has evidence of multiple head trauma via x-rays, which has caused a number of neurological deficits - including limited sight and hearing. She has a slight head tilt to the right, and also sometimes drags her right rear leg. She came to our custody with bilateral ear infections, severely underweight, and her coat in poor condition. She also appears to feel chronically, moderately anxious.

If you're looking for a gorgeous, young, trainable German Shepherd
who will love you forever,
Scout may be your ideal family member!

SCOUT'S ADOPTION FEE:   $300
This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on.

Not Good with Cats, Is Not Good with Kids

PLEASE READ THIS:

  1. We're picky about our adopters. 
  2. Are you sure you're up to having a GSD?  They're not for everyone.  They take a lot of time, effort, training.  They shed year round.  They're big.  They scare lots of people.  They "mouth" and herd.  They're usually strong-willed and stubborn.  You have to have references and a home visit.  If you're not willing or able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time or ours applying.  
  3. Will the dog be an inside family pet? We do not adopt to outdoor-only homes. All dogs must be indoor dogs.
  4. Do you leave your dog outdoors when you're not home?   We do not adopt to homes that leave their animals outside when they're gone.  You must put your dogs indoors when you're gone.  A 3 yr old adopted MOGS dog died when the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, the gate was somehow opened, and she was hit by a car.  Tragic and 100% preventable. Even privacy fences get broken into.  Gates are opened.  Thieves steal dogs. Never leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  5. What's your plan for unexpected events and major changes?  New baby? Divorce?  Moving?   How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up? 
  6. Will you make a lifetime commitment?  It's your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE.
  7.  Do you understand we expect you to keep that lifetime commitment?  It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
  8. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
