Tootsie is a young female Beagle mix. Her approximate date of birth is 4-14-16 and she weighs 21.4#. She has been spayed, is up-to-date on her vaccines and has tested negative to heartworms.
Tootsie is an energetic little girl and will run in circles in front of you just to show you how happy she is. She's a treat freak and will do well learning new things by receiving treats as rewards. She is smart, wants to please and settles into new routines quickly. She does like to jump on you and her foster mom is trying to correct this but she will need more work on this issue. She also needs more work on her leash training. Tootsie apparently was scolded a lot when she was little and will cower to the floor and pee when she is being leashed or picked up. She should get over this as she settles more and more in her new home and she feels loved and safe. She loves to cuddle with you and loves to please.
Tootsie never learned how to play with other dogs and likes to challenge them. So it is suggested that she be an only dog until she can learn how to get along with other dogs. Socializing in dog parks and in public should be closely monitored. She is curious of cats and will run up to them but does not hurt them. There are no children at her foster home but she probably would love children, especially older children that could play with her.
