Scout is this week's pet of the week!

Love is one of the easiest and most satisfying emotions we can experience and that loving bond between a person and their pet is a wonderfully unique thing.  Pets show unconditional love in a way that is virtually impossible to get anywhere else.  In showing this love and loyalty, they put their ultimate trust people to take care of them and love them in return. Unfortunately, there are many pets that have been abandoned or abused or find themselves alone for a host of other reasons.  In a continuing effort to provide caring homes for deserving pets, the Heber Springs Humane Society and The Sun-Times have teamed up to showcase a featured pet. 

Our featured dog of the week is Scout.  Scout is a small border collie mix, possibly with spaniel, about 30 pounds in weight and approximately one year old. He is alert, playful, curious, and while he enjoys play, he is not hyperactive.  He is affectionate, well-behaved, highly trainable, and full of personality. He is very good with cats, other dogs, and people. He loves attention, and he wants to go home with his own family.

     The pictures taken for this column and most of the pictures on the Facebook page have been taken by Lee Wallace, who has volunteered her time and her talent in support of the Heber Springs Humane Society.  We welcome volunteers to walk and groom dogs or cuddle the cats.  Please remember to spay and neuter your pets.
