Ms Loretta can and will surprise you with her ability to jump in or out of places, we used a playpen the first couple off nights but she escaped from the playpen easily. She doesn't need it because she is not at all destructive, and she is housebroken. She prefers to have a spot next to your bed if possible. Remember she is a people girl!! Loretta also likes a room with a view outside, and if you get a spot with some sun she will be delighted.
Loretta absolutely hates crates, please don't try to force her into one, she doesn't need one. Just remember she is a Beagle so don't leave food or treats unattended on tables as she will try find a way to get them. She is agile and we think she may be younger than the shelter believed. Loretta is a very special girl that will give comfort and peace if you need it. Has all the qualities of a great therapy dog. If you are interested in meeting this very special girl please let me know. You will not be disappointed. For more information, please see our website listing for Loretta or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
