QUICK UPDATE – 28 FEBRUARY 2014: As you can see from Woody’s new photo, he is so proud to have “furniture privileges”, even if it is only when he receives permission!
Woody was adopted from BREW in 2010. Unfortunately, circumstances have him looking for a new home. Woody’s family had a baby, and Woody was jealous of the new family member and did not adjust well, so for the safety of all involved it was decided that Woody come back to BREW and we would find him a new home.
Woody has spent some time in “beagle boot camp”, both to work on weight-loss (he was a bit rotund) and his attitude. Woody likes to be the one to control who is allowed in the house, and in his opinion, nobody that doesn’t live there should be allowed. This behavior is being addressed in his current foster home with a combination of techniques, and progress is being made, but his adoptive home will need to be willing to continue working with this issue.
Woody is crate- and house-trained, and has not showed any tendencies toward chewing anything other than doggie appropriate toys. He LOVES to cuddle and gets along pretty well with other dogs, although he will give warning “snaps” if there is food or if another dog is trying to intrude on his getting attention.
Woody is epileptic, but it is well-controlled with daily medication administered with his morning and evening meal.
He will need a home that is firm as he was accustomed to having things too much his own way, and will periodically challenge his humans just to see “if they really mean it” when he is told to do something like go in his crate or move/get off the furniture.
If you’re looking for a new four-footed family member, and think you have room in your heart and your life for Woody, contact BREW and ask for more information.
