When being introduced to the two dogs in our household, he was polite and playful, even when our male dog was a little grumpy with him. After about 12 hours, all of the dogs decided they were going to be friends. Beau has shown no resource guarding behaviors and absolutely no aggression toward anyone.

Beau is not yet neutered, so he has been marking, but that has largely subsided since he has settled in. Hes not officially housebroken but only had one accident the first day; it helps that our resident dogs are showing him how to go outside AND come back inside (he was a bit confused by that!). We have a chain link fence and hes had fun exploring the yard, with no attempts at escape.

Beau LOVES our kids (who are 10, 13, and 15) and would probably do well with younger children as well. We have cats in the house, but if hes noticed them he hasnt let us know!

He needs training, but has quickly picked up sit and come, and will recall with a whistle as well. He responds well to correction and redirection, such as when he jumps on people or gets ahold of something not appropriate for dogs (like socks!). We have not needed to kennel him, but he has gone into the kennel on his own at at times and seems comfortable there. He is also not much of a barker, although will bark if other dogs do so, or when hes trying to play. Hes been great on car rides too!All this AND hes very, very handsome, snuggly, and loving. Hes going to be an amazing addition to someones family!
*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person! If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called cute as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!
Completion of an Adoption Application via our website is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is the first step in our adoption process.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
