I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Hello everyone! My name is Bee! I know the first question you have is how did I get the name Bee?? Well I was brought to a county shelter in Southern Illinois with another male beagle friend of mine. They decided we would be named Bee and Gee after “The Bee Gees”. I can only guess they named us this because we looked like rock stars! We were in the shelter a long time and arrangements were made for us to be rescued by Midwest BREW. When we heard this good news we couldn’t stop singing “Stayin’ Alive”!! Thank you Midwest BREW!
I currently am getting out of that old, rough rock’n roll lifestyle (which really was puppy mill life for me) and I am living in a foster home with my foster mom, dad and a beagle foster brother. My foster mom has taken to calling me “Mr. B”. The accommodations here are five star rated! I love sleeping in a cozy dog bed, the human bed or the couch. I am pretty much an independent boy and don’t bother the resident beagle boy too much.
At first my foster mom was crating me but it was evident that I was starting to dislike my crate. Foster mom thinks I have spent too many years in a crate or pen and once I have had a taste of the dog bed I don’t really want to go back to the crate, it’s boring! Foster mom is working on getting me to see the positives of the crate.For example I often get my meals in the crate. So you see? We are working on different things.
I am just a little guy and only weigh about 20 pounds. A few extra pounds will do me good! Because I have lived confined in my previous life, my foster mom thinks a secure fenced yard is best for me because I could be an escape artist. She doesn’t really know as she has a privacy fence but better safe than sorry. I am a true rescue dog and I have to ask for patience. I do love my foster parents and I wish they could be around all day because this is the first taste I have had of love and care. I am a happy fella and my tail never stops wagging. I never meet a stranger. I like to be petted, loved on and to be close to my human. It is pretty nice of me to still love you guys after some humans weren’t too kind to me.
I walk well on a leash although I love to stop and sniff along the way. I don’t bark much. I am very food motivated like most beagles and foster mom has taught me to sit for a treat. I like to counter surf but since I’m such a little guy I can’t reach anything and foster parents are working with me to learn not to do it. It’s just that I love food so much that I want what’s up there. I’m smart so I’ll get it.
It is taking me a bit to get the whole house training thing but I am doing much better. I know how to use the doggie door and I’ve not had an accident in a couple weeks now. I will probably still need some guidance upon my move to my forever home.
I hope you will give me a chance to steal your heart. I may need a little extra time and patience but the love of a rescue dog like me is unconditional. I would love to be your best friend! As The Bee Gees once sang “How deep is your love…?” Arrroooo!!
