This is a happy, quiet boy who would love a home with someone to love on! He gives more love than he gets and would be good in a house or an apartment. He only barks at meal time or outside. He would really like to find a forever home where he could trust the kindness of a family.
11 SEPTEMBER 2014: "Hello, I am Solo. I am a red and white beagle boy who loves people. I am good with dogs my size and smaller, however, big dogs frighten me so I bark at them. I love to be with my beagle buddies here at Nana's, but my favorite place to be is where ever Nana is located. I am house broken, so I go outside to do my business. I still get in trouble for marking. Nana said that will pass after time. I do not chew inappropriately and I really don't play with toys. My favorite things are long walks (I don't pull on my leash), doing tricks for Nana and snuggling and being petted. I will walk as long as you can keep going or I will sleep the day away. I am easy going and love attention. I am flexible. I can get up early or sleep late, just let me be with you."
Solo would be good in an apartment or in a home. He would especially be good living with someone who is retired or works from home.
Original info: Solo is and older guy from Powhatan, Virginia. He has what looks like an old eye injury leaving a blue spot on the eye. His kennel caretaker says, "I have to admit I am a little surprised, even a little in awe because this guy will not poop or pee in his kennel, knows the doggy door, will poop and pee on a leash and knows "sit"!! He had been at my kennels a couple of days with no messes which I thought was unusual so I decided to take him out to see if he would go. I now walk him every evening when I get to the kennels and he goes immediately. This guy was at the end of his time!!! He came in as a stray but must have been someone's pet at one time. He in not too happy about kennel life. He still needs vetting but he is quiet and with all things considered, I think he would make a good apartment dog."
