Foster Home Feedback

                       * No Children

1/26/17: Boston is a wonderful dog and a gorgeous beagle.  He is very loyal in his home to his people.  He kennels well when we leave the house – I grab a treat and he heads for the kennel.  

  He loves to run and play ball outside.  A fenced yard is a must for Boston as he gets nervous when strangers approach while he is on a leash and will lunge.  He is definitely a Beagle and does make it known with his bark.   

  Boston also gets nervous when strangers or people he doesn’t see often come into the house so it is best for all to just plan on kenneling him when someone he hasn’t learned to trust comes in the house.  Boston’s issues with strangers have improved over time but he has a long way to go with his stranger danger.

  If you want a loyal dog and have a quiet house with a fenced yard, Boston might be the dog for you!


9/7/16: Boston is still here waiting for his permanent home.  He is an awesome guy to have around.  He loves to play ball, kennels well and is loving to his people.  He does need a fenced yard as he is very scared of strangers and will lunge at them, so I am very careful when people come to the house. Boston is just the sweetest little guy to the people in the household that he considers to be friends.  He will get used to a small amount of people and will be very loyal to his companion so a single person or a couple with not a lot of company and no children around would be ideal for him.

6/29/16: Boston is still here!  Boston is the perfect dog for someone that has a quiet household and a fenced yard.  He is so lovable.  Although he loves to play with other dogs, he might be best as an “only dog” as long as he has a person to call his own.  We enjoy having Boston.   He knows in the morning when I am ready to leave, I head for the treats and he heads for his kennel.  Boston is potty trained and his favorite pass time is playing ball.

 Boston still has issues with strangers, so I am very cautious when people come to the house.    I do have a dog of my own that Boston plays with, but Boston is easily triggered with a growl and will become aggressive, so they are not left unsupervised alone.   As Boston’s “person” I can say that Boston has never turned on me as he is very loyal to me, so once you take over my roll, he will be your best friend.

 If you have any questions about Boston, please feel free to ask.  If you do have the perfect home for this special dog, we can make sure you get to know him and can become friends before taking him home.


3/6/16: Boston has been with me for 3 months now.  He is a very loving and loyal dog to “his person”.   Boston does have a fear of strangers and needs to be kenneled or leashed to someone he trusts, when people come to the house.  His safe place is his kennel.  He kennels very well when I leave him for the day.  He knows when I reach for a handful of treats and toys, it's time and he races me to the kennel.  He has a dog companion at my house but supervision is required when they are together as Boston can get too amped up, become very rough and dominate quickly.  

He has been going to training where he is getting exposed to strangers and learning simple commands. He is very motivated with treats so stock up!  If you are interested in Boston, please make sure you are willing and have the time required to work with him.

I feel Boston will do best in a 1 or 2 adult person household without children.


2/24/16 Feedback From Kish Hilmert (dog trainer with Down Dog Studio):  Boston  is a sweet dog but because he was not exposed to many new people or situations when he was a puppy he is fearful of new people and new environments. His ideal home would be one with a quiet environment with a limited number of new people visiting and a playful doggie friend. He enjoys rambunctious play with other dogs so a canine companion would be great.  Boston 's foster has done a great job working with him to associate new people with positive things. He has come along way with general training and working on his stranger danger but he still has progress to make. His new home would need to continue working with  Boston on training and getting him comfortable with new people. 


12/1/15:  Boston is very timid and will take some time adjusting to his new people. He does get better every day and will now follow us around wherever we go and will get on the couch and sit next to us. He gets very scared and freezes when we pick him up, but that too has gotten better since the first day he was with us. Having other dogs has helped him; he follows them outside and does what they do. He would benefit from having a dog buddy to show him the ropes. His new home needs to have a fenced in yard to keep him safe since he is so timid and scared to come to people. He loves running outside in the yard and throws himself around like he's having the time of his life. He likes to play with toys and has recently started playing with our dogs. Boston is as cute as they come, but he does need plenty of patience and time to adjust to his new home.
