|Notes from Lacey's foster carer, Kirstie.....
Lacey is the most lovable beagle and the perfect age – still a
puppy but not too mischievous. She knows how to have fun and
will play with the resident dogs for hours on end. Sometimes she
doesn’t know when they’ve finished playing and won’t take no for
an answer until they give her a little nip. She would like to
think of herself as a dominant beagle and sometimes forgets her
little size. Although fully grown, she’s petite coming in just
under 10 kilos. She is not as vocal as most of the beagles we
know but she will let you know if someone is walking past the
Perhaps the most appealing part of Lacey is her cuddles. She
is incredibly affectionate and adores snuggling up to her
humans. She does not like to see an empty lap and will be
content in your arms for as long as you’ll have her!
Lacey has recently been learning how to walk on a lead. She
has improved a lot in the area however her new forever family
will need to continue this training so that her behaviour is
positive long-term. She has been walking on a harness and is a
lot more settled, however will slip back into her “silly ways”
if not reminded regularly. She is still learning not to pull too
hard and to sit before we cross the road.
Lacey has not spent a lot of time around children or cats.
She is curious about the resident cat but I’m sure would love to
play with her if given half a chance! Lacey is used to living
outside and would prefer to cuddle up with the resident beagles
on a big cushion to sleep than on the big doggy bed.
