From the Foster:
Oh Mr. Barry… He is as close to a perfect dog as I have met – and volunteering for a rescue I have met quite a few dogs. He has a sad looking face and a pathetic whine but don’t let that fool you, he is so happy with a tail that is constantly wagging.
Things he loves: He loves people, other dogs, and big fluffy dog beds. He also loves to chew on fuzzy toys, tennis balls, and doggy bones. He is a hound which means no matter where he is he needs to sniff all the things. Give him a good butt scratch and he’ll be your best friend forever!
Things he does not like: He HATES getting his nails trimmed and getting ear drops. He’s also not a fan of baths, but he tolerates them. Other than that I have not found much he doesn’t like… At first he did whine a little when my spouse and I were in different rooms - I think he likes to keep tabs on all of his people, but he stopped after about a month with us. He will also whine when his people leave, he has an itch he can’t reach, he needs to go out, he’s hungry, or when he gets in his kennel (but he does settle in OK). Basically he’s big whiney butt and will whine when he needs anything, shared walls would not be ideal for him.
Things I love about him: Where do I begin… he is completely potty trained – he hasn’t even tried to mark anything inside. He doesn’t make a peep all night. He’s gotten along with every dog he’s met from a little 9lb spazzy dachshund to a 60lb linebacker pit bull. He even met Quasi the Great and he’s “Quasi Approved”. He’s also really great with our cat (although he does need to be kept away from the litter box). He’s adjusted really well to his foster home so I know he will adjust just as well to his forever home.
Things to know: Barry is a typical Beagle which means he can be stubborn and on alert. He will bark at cars/people he sees on the road from the house – he’s just alerting us what is going outside. Once anyone gets to the door though he welcomes them into the home – no issues with visitors. If he has a high value toy like a bone he will growl if dogs or people get too close. Although, he does let us take it away if we do it carefully. His nose also can get the better of him and he will be so focused on sniffing that he will not listen. He’ll need to be monitored whenever he’s outside and anything he can reach he’ll get into. He also has allergies that are being treated with diet and meds. And like all the floppy ear breeds, he is prone to ear infections.
Barry is so funny and cute with a giant personality. I am already jealous of the lucky person/family that adopts him!
