Mandy has been housebroken from the start. She learned to use the dog door quickly and will sit and wait for you to close the “big” door so she can go out her own door! She only goes out to take care of business 2-3 times a day, so may have been kenneled for long periods of time. She rarely gets into anything that does not belong to the pack to play with. She is content to find a comfy place on the couch to watch the action of the pack.
She has slowly been feeling more confident around the other beagles. She will wrestle with a couple of them and is showing interest in joining the chase when a squirrel has been spotted!
She would do well in a home that has a mellow canine companion that can show her how good life can be with a family of her own.
It has taken Mandy a month to trust that I will give her love and protection from the big, bad world. She comes up to sleep on the big bed and loves to snuggle. Just mention tummy rubs and watch her roll over on her back! If one of the other beagles frightens her at bedtime she will go sleep on the couch, but she always sneaks back in during the night! She has so much love to give. Mandy needs someone who will give her time to blossom into the sweet girl she was meant to be.
