Buddy is a seven year old tri colour male, who needs a new home with a very secure garden which will thwart his regular escape attempts. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Buddy walks nicely on his lead, but can occasionally pull. While he has been let off lead in the past, he has started disappearing off to enjoy adventures by himself, so he has been kept on lead more recently. Buddy is a friendly soul who has never shown aggression to another person or dog, although he is wary of large, darker coloured dogs after he was attacked by one as a puppy. He travels very nicely in the car.
At home, Buddy is house trained but has never used a crate. He can be left on his own for four hours at the most. He is not destructive, and will happily give back stolen items. While he is well behaved in the house, Buddy is a highly skilled escapologist, and has got out of his garden several times, so his new home must be one with a very secure garden.
Buddy has never lived with a cat, but has been part of a family with teenage children, so would have no trouble being part of a family with older children, or adults only. He’s a typical food orientated hound, with a bit of a stubborn streak, so a family with prior beagle experience would be ideal for him, but not mandatory. Buddy is a very intelligent free spirit, and will do really well in the right home.
