Sol is a Beagle or Beagle mix, approximately 5-6 years old. Beagles typically have a life span of 12-15 years old. They are scent hounds that were used primarily to track rabbits, hares and foxes, so they do like to follow the trail of an interesting scent (outdoors and indoors,) and can be reluctant to come when called if they are on a good scent. Beagles are known for being good family companions, as they are generally happy and gentle with people. They are hounds, though, so they do bark some and sometimes howl.
This wonderful boy is learning to walk on a leash, as this was never required of him before. Once he masters his leash skills, he should be a great walking companion. Sol's breed is typically active, but he personally is more of a moderate activity level dog. He will need regular exercise and portion control to help him lose a little weight and maintain his proper weight, which should be about 22 - 25 lbs.
