Ben - Adoption Pending's Story...
Meet Ben, a 5 year old Doxie/Beagle Mix, weighing 13 lbs, with a very sweet & loving personality. He LOVES people (will walk right up to strangers and sit in anyone's lap) and his favorite thing ever is to cuddle with you. He is very, very gentle with people, does great when given a bath and getting his nails clipped. Occasionally barks at squirrels in the yard and will bark when there is a knock at the door, but quiet & mellow otherwise. House trained & crate trained (but prefers to sleep next to you in bed). Can be left alone in house, as he is non-destructive, no accidents. Knows commands like come, sit, stay, lay down. Responds to a clicker, so probably clicker trained previously. Comes quickly when called. Eager to please and seems very easy to train...he is food motivated! Good on leash and LOVES going for walks. He does pull on the leash so using a harness is helpful for him. Tendency to bark like crazy when he sees another dog or squirrel - currently working on this behavior. He likes short car rides but does not care for camping (too stressful!). Seems to do great with other dogs at first, but has a history of possessiveness with his people - we have not yet seen this behavior, as he is in foster care with another family dog. Needs a home with older, respectful children over 12.
