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, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Henry is 2 years old, very active and needs LOTS of undivided attention from his owner. He is up-to-date on all his vaccinations, and is currently on a heart-worm preventative. He does suffer seizures in the extreme heat, but they are not an issue as long as he stays in air conditioning during the summer and does not expend alot of energy (ie: long walks) in the heat. It's been more than 2 months since his last seizure. His most recent vet visit was in August 2005. We will be happy to supply Henry's current vet records to his new owner.
Henry is crate trained (he sleeps in his crate at night, and is kept in the crate for short periods during the day when I run errands). He is also house broken. Henry has attended obedience classes, but like any beagle, needs constant reinforcement to "remember" what he learned. He will NOT do well in a home with small children because he does not know his own strength and tends to jump on children when he is excited. He means no harm -- but it's best if children were not in the picture. He also acts out (ie: steals items, chews up the trash) when he feels you are not paying attention to him. The only time he growls is when you play ball with him -- he doesn't give up the ball easily. He is very good with other dogs -- I used to take him to the dog park regularly and he liked to interact off-leash with the other dogs there.
Unfortunately, circumstances have changed in our home and Henry is not as happy as he once was. I just had a baby in May, and he has not adjusted well. I also do not have the time anymore to devote to long walks, trips to the dog park, or provide the constant (and consistent) attention he needs. While he has not harmed the baby -- in fact, he's been very, very gentle with our child -- his jealousy has increased in spite of our efforts to make the adjustment easier and he is acting out more and more.
Henry has been well-loved in our home, and it is important to us that this continue in his new home.
