Adopting a rescue dog can be a journey into the unknown, but adopting a rescue dog born with severe visual impairment was always going to be a challenge. The questions came thick and fast – would they, could they, should they? Scout entered the lives of Tracey and Paul and turned them upside down with his own brand of charismatic charm that melted not only their hearts, but the hearts of everyone he met. At first, it was definitely a case of the blind leading the blind, but with his indomitable spirit and a never-ending supply of enthusiasm, Scout was soon leading the way.
Discover how Scout’s carers learned to build on the unconditional trust and devotion that came from this clumsy, flat-footed, loveable Lurcher. And maybe – just maybe – this book will answer the real question. Who rescued who?

For the love of Scout by Tracey Ison

As a child, Tracey’s love for animals of all shapes and sizes was apparent to all who knew her.
As a teenager she embarked on her dream career as a veterinary nurse, qualifying in 1989, and has been working in small animal practice ever since. Tracey’s passion is her beloved dogs and her involvement with dog rescue, being both board member and trustee of a local dog rescue centre.

Tracey writes from the heart about her life with her dogs, and draws on her many years of experience, both as a veterinary nurse and as a dog owner.
