Spuds is a long legged lemon beagle/lab mix, 7 years old and 40-45 lbs. He’s got a stubbed tail – shelter thought he had some cocker spaniel in him – we don’t see it. He has developed some great friendships with other B&B dogs – might help if he was adopted with one of those companions. Very selective of his people – not good with strangers. He will only bite a stranger if they try to touch him or get too much into his personal space but once he trusts you he is completely fine, he’s a good boy- friendly, loves cuddles, mingles well with other dogs, runs around the yard, and follows his people obediently.

Does well on a leash. Here’s how he likes to learn to trust: Someone come very frequently and spend 15+ minutes with him – less in the beginning. Check in with him – go volunteer with another dog or other task – and then back to him. Repeat this often and until he is happy to see you. That is how he learned to LOVE us here. We rescue a fair number of very shy, unsocialized dogs – they can heal – if we, the people, don’t mess it up.

We use the help of a terrific trainer/dog whisperer – terristeuben.com Please find our applications and valuable information under “Adopt a dog”* on our website: *www.beaglesandbuddies.com* and email your application to [email protected].
