found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
I have been in my foster home since early September after being rescued from a shelter, so my foster mom knows me pretty well by now. I was a stray but seem to be used to living in a home since I settled in quickly. I am crateable, but would rather be out in the house. I was trustworthy enough to let me do this after the first week or so of getting used to my new home. I do enjoy sleeping in my crate at night and usually choose that over being in the bed with the people! But I have slept at the end of the bed a couple of times, so I don't take up much room!
I love to snuggle on the couch while you are relaxing, and I love hanging out with you in the yard or going on a ride to the pet store! I even tried one of their big bathtubs to get a bath and tolerated it like an expert.
I was Heartworm positive, but I handled the treatment really well. I had to spend a couple months with limited activity because of the heartworm treatment, so anytime I got to go for a walk was a huge excitement. But I have a low to medium energy level so relaxing is second nature to me and I will not be bouncing off the walls.
I have a flexible personality so could do well in many types of homes. I can see myself in a few different types of homes!! Maybe by myself, or with a couple or maybe with a family with children - older than 5-6 since I am a bit of a wiggler. I am VERY gentle, I don't jump around, but because I want to be near you a lot, I sometimes don't realize I am bumping into things like your legs (so I don't want to knock anyone down).
I need a lot of attention, so although I get along super well with my foster brother and sister, I might be fine as an only dog as long as I am getting lots of walks and outings. For example, when foster mom is petting the other beagles, I like to barge my face into the group and have it be "all about me". I am a good listener and know how to stay away from things with a simple gruff "NO!", but when I am having an "all about me" moment, it takes a little more to have me understand. (Training classes would be great - I am really smart and would do well knowing more than sit, no and come!!)
Please consider adding me to your family because I have so much love to give, and I am really cute, too! Some of the silly things I do: sock fetish - loose or in a pair (clean or dirty!), I like to steal them and run away to put them somewhere else! I don't chew on them, I just like taking them! Sometimes I chase my tail a little, and other times I do some zoomies in the yard. Another funny thing I do, is when I play like a cat, where I pick up a cow hoof or deer antler and fling it around and retrieve it before settling down to chew on it. And yes, I also play fetch!!
