Mr. Hunter is a tricolor little beagle (13 inches high) with adorable floppy ears and such a sweet face.
Mr. Hunter is a sweet, energetic dog who enjoys playing, walking, and being petted. He's happy to play with toys on his own and will get even more excited if you join in. We are looking for an adopter who:
• Has another young dog to play with, so that Hunter can get his energy out.
• Has a securely fenced yard, as he is a hound, and will follow his nose when given the chance.
• For this reason we also recommend a GPS collar.
• Lives in a detached home because beagles like to bay.
• Stays home a good part of the day so he doesn't have to be crated for long periods.
Hunter quickly learned to use a doggie door and loves to run around the backyard on his own. He knows "Sit" and we are now working on "Leave it."
Mr. Hunter has only been walking on a leash for a few weeks, but he is doing well and wants to make friends with all the dogs and people he meets. He loves to play with other dogs, especially those of similar high energy.
Mr. Hunter loves to be petted all over his body and will "melt" into your hands as you massage him. He will gently takes treats from your fingers and enjoys his dry dog food. He is completely house- and crate trained. We recommend he be crated when you aren't around because he still has a puppy-like tendency to chew on things. He sleeps the night in his crate.
Hunter does not jump on furniture but does like to stand on his hind legs to try to get food left on tables. Mr. Hunter enjoys talking to other beagles on TV (see video!). He loves to be with people and sometimes whimpers when you leave.
Hunter will do well with a person or family who understands he is an energetic young dog who needs loving guidance.
Mr. Hunter is healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative.
Mr. Hunter came into IAR from a local shelter.
