Scout is a beagle- an eighty pound beagle. Yes, you read that right.
When scout arrived, we suspected immediately that his weight was not just caused by being over fed- he had classic symptoms of an under active thyroid.
Bloodwork reveals that he does have low thyroid- but luckily the medication is very inexpensive!
Scout is on medicine morning and night, and our vet has him on a weight loss plan and wants to see him get down to under forty pounds. We are hoping that there may be an adopter out there- maybe someone with extra time this summer- who would be able to provide scout with a lot of short, frequent walks (and while it’s super hot out, indoor activity or super early or late evening walks), and strict twice daily feedings, and maybe some green beans throughout the day as a low calorie treat.
Scout is 6 years old, very nice, was very good at the vet for his blood draw, he’s up to date on shots, and hw negative.
His adoption fee is $200- however, we will include medication and bloodwork to get his thyroid under control, and then an additional 2 months of meds after it’s controlled!
