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. I go out potty with the other dogs in my home, then I eat breakfast. At breakfast I have medication because I had a couple seizures back when I lived in Texas, but I've been seizure free for 4 months now. (We aren't really certain that Ace needs seizure medication daily but sine we have no back history, making changes needs to be discussed with his doctor). 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 a little more activity than a walk each day.
Personal goals: Beagles are notorious for finding weak areas in an enclosure, so I need to be really supervised outside until I can be trusted. Now that I have been here a while 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 free roam with other dogs when my family is away a shorter time (couple hours) but they crate me on longer absences as I seem to pee when I am upset (potty trained otherwise). I can hold it so my family thinks this is just mild separation anxiety. I've been ok with being crated as needed as I am used to it. 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 of anything.
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!
