Fostered in Wisconsin
Daily Routine: Hi, my name is Ace and I like to snuggle! I start every morning curled up next to my foster mom-right on her pillow. I go out potty with the other dogs in my home, then I eat breakfast. I seem to have a sensitive tummy so occasionally I don't want to eat. At breakfast I have medication because I had a couple seizures back when I lived in Texas but I've been seizure free for 3-4 months now. After breakfast I usually want to play with my human siblings until they go to school, then with my furry siblings. I love playing outside but I also love naps. Spending time with my family is important to me and we love going for walks together. After dinner time I take my seizure medication again, then it's time for Netflix and snooze.
What I love to do: I love snuggling, and I also love playing tug of war! I will play with dogs or people! I also love following my nose around the yard and chasing away any wildlife that does not belong! I have to be secure outside so a fence would be best for me. I could not be left outside on a tie out and need more activity than a walk each day.
Personal goals: I do like to dig a bit and really destroy toys so you have to make sure they get in the trash before I swallow them. When I first came to my foster home I broke through the fence the police chased me all over town. My foster parents quickly found any weak points in the fence and filled any holes where I might dig under. For a while I could only go out with a chaperone but I have earned my rights back and no longer look to escape. My foster mom thinks I was mostly just so excited about freedom after being on activity restriction due to heart worm treatment. Now that it is done I can run around in the yard all I want.
Favorite thing to do with my best friend: I love both dogs and people! I wrestle and play with dogs big and small. I enjoy getting belly rubs from kids and snuggling with my family when they read or nap or watch T.V. Going on walks is very fun too but sometimes I pull, other times I sniff and zig-zag.
Kind of family I want: I get along with people of all ages and so far, every dog I have met. As a beagle, I do need a bit more exercise and activity than the average basset. I also have some mild separation anxiety so I need a family that is not gone long days most of the time. I free roam with other dogs when my family is away a shorter time but they crate me on longer absences as I seem to pee when I am upset (potty trained otherwise). Furry playmates are great, but I would probably be ok without them too if the living situation was right.
Biggest fears: I haven't been particularly fearful other than not liking to be alone a whole ton.
Ideal weekend plans: I enjoy being with my people, working in the yard or taking a snooze, it doesn't matter to me. I will go where you go, or take a nap when I am tired!
