About Smudge

Smudge is estimated to have been born around December 2020, although he has come to us with no official information about his background.  Smudge is vaccinated and microchipped.

Because Smudge has had a less than brilliant start to life, with little to no human input, he is effectively a puppy in an adult beagle’s body.  Beagle owning experience is absolutely essential for anyone interested in offering Smudge a home, as is being able to commit to the time he will need to bring him up to speed on his basic training and skills. 

It appears that Smudge has been crated for the majority of his days, being bounced from pillar to post.  He has had no continuity or stability, simply being passed on to someone else when he outstayed his welcome.  He has not been walked on a lead, so this would need to be a skill which he is taught at the earliest opportunity.  Having said that, when he escaped from one of his homes, he knew where to return to, so he is clearly intelligent, with lots of potential.

At the moment, Smudge has no boundaries, and has never been told no.  He didn’t like being told off at first.  The people who rescued him from his original home noted that he responded better to being put in his place by people who knew how to manage dogs, and respected those people better as leaders.  He will gladly throw his weight around to see what he can get away with, which might be overwhelming for people without dog owning experience.

Smudge is not suitable for a home with cats, as he has not experienced them.  As he is lacking in basic training, and is very boisterous, we would not want to risk placing him in a home with children.  He could potentially join another tolerant dog, as he has enjoyed socialising, but his excited barking and nagging might be a bit much for the average dog! Taking him on will mean committing yourself to a lot of intensive catch-up training, but it looks like he is very keen to learn, and is already showing our team what a lovely, soft natured boy he is once he trusts you.  Smudge will be a rewarding project for the right family.
