Dewey is a happy, easygoing and well mannered gentleman who is ready for his forever home!
Dewey would thrive in a laid back home where he will be loved and spoiled. His favorite thing is being outside with us exploring the yard, rolling around in a patch of grass in the sun, lounging under a tree and chasing a favorite ball or stick (or squirrel!). When he's ready for a rest, he likes to cuddle on the couch with his favorite person or a a bone. At the end of a long day, he would be very happy to sleep with you under the blankets. Although if that's not your thing, he does sleep quietly all night next to the bed.
Dewey is a smart guy! He knows basic commands, including how to shake! He loves people and jumps out of excitement when meeting someone new or when we come home. We don't have many visitors so he doesn't get a lot of opportunity to practice not jumping. He would love to continue his obedience training with his forever family
Dewey has perfect house manners. He has free reign of the house when we're gone and rarely gets into mischief. I hear that beagles are vocal but Dewey is generally a quiet guy. He does occasionally bark at dogs that pass the house and will whine by the door if it's a beautiful day and he wants to go outside to play. He'll cry/howl if he knows we're outside and he's not out there.
Dewey has demonstrated allergies during the spring. He likely experiences seasonal allergies, however we don't know at this time if he has year-round allergies. He will need life-long maintenance (either seasonal or year-round) to prevent recurrences and flare ups of allergic itching.
Dewey needs a fully, and securely fenced yard for safety.
Dewey is fearful of children so he'll need a home with teens and older. If children visit your home, he may still be a good fit but you will need to commit to keeping them separated. If you have young visitors, I encourage you to apply and we can talk more about this.
Dewey is cautious around other dogs so he wants to be your one and only doggy friend. We are working on leash manners when he passes other dogs. He was with a temp foster who said he did fantastic with her!
Dewey is a true gem of a dog! He will be an amazing addition to a family!
