Bertie is two year old tri colour male, who is looking for a new home with a beagle experienced family who can give him the guidance he needs to overcome his anxiety.  He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.Bertie likes to go for walks, and can walk to heel if asked.  If you don’t tell him to walk to heel, he’ll assume it’s okay to pull on the lead.  He walks regularly off lead, and has good recall.  He loves to meet other dogs, and can’t wait to be part of the pack if he sees a group of dogs.  He has never shown aggression to another dog  He travels nicely in the car. At home, Bertie is house trained but has never used a crate.  He can be left alone for a few hours.  He has never tried to escape from his secure garden.  Bertie enjoys intercepting the post and stealing slippers, so it would be good if his new home has experience of a light fingered dog.  Once Bertie has stolen something, it can be difficult to get him to give it back, as he uses it as a comforter.  This is probably linked to his anxiety.Bertie’s new home must be a calm one, as in his previous busy home, he found the comings and goings of the family members a bit worrying.  His new home should be one without young children, due to Bertie’s resource guarding behaviour, and without cats.  If you can offer this anxious boy the chance to put down some firm foundations, he will reward you with lots of love and affection.
