|Notes from Buddy's foster
carer, Kim .....
Buddy is a very gentle and placid
beagle; probably the easiest, lowest maintenance foster I have
cared for. He gets on well with everyone; including small
children, other dogs and our pet bird.
Like all Beagles, he needs to be on lead when out on the
street but he doesn't run off quickly and can be called back
(unusual!). He's a very enthusiastic walker but doesn't pull
much and can be controlled quite readily with voice command or a
gentle tug on the lead.
In his recent past he was the constant companion of an
elderly lady so he is used to company during the day. He does
cry for a short time when we leave him at home but neighbours
report no noise so I suspect he accepts his fate and settles in
for a nap or a bit of pet bird watching.
He is well behaved around the house; fully house trained
(using a doggy door to access yard) and I can leave him alone
inside unsupervised without returning to scenes of destruction
(excepting food left out).
He likes to be nearby his people at all times but he is
content to sleep in his bed just outside my bedroom and I
haven't lost a wink of sleep due to him being unsettled at
night. He likes his food (currently trying to drop body weight
by a kg or 2) but he is not used to human food (suspect his food
in previous home was inexpensive dog food) and I recommend
feeding him good quality dog food to avoid any stomach upsets.
He really deserves a loving, forever home after being
re-homed at least once previously (he was adopted by recent
owner from Blacktown Pound in 2015 after being picked up by a
passer-by from some menacing kids on the street).
All enquiries welcome and I'm happy to introduce you so you
can get to know him better.
