Jake had to be returned as we couldn’t cope with him! Beagles for more than 25 years and this one had us beat...very sad! I blame the previous owner but at least hopefully, some good will come out of this. I see he’s readvertised now ’with problems’!
He needs an older owner (like us!!) but with a large garden so he can play and potter about. He can’t go for walks, he’s very insecure and get’s anxious. He doesn’t like other dogs and seems afraid of men! He also wee’d his bed every night so the poor little mite, dear knows what had happened to him in the past.
The welfare people did say I told them more about him than the original owner when he was left, but sadly this won’t help Jake. He will be hard to rehome I’m sure, they have had one chap (male beagle!) in kennels for over a year. The longer, the harder to rehome....honestly sometimes ..... people......
Now wendy can hardly walk after jumping out of our car. Will have to be the vet tomorrow....tut.....
Aaawww, poor Jake Sounds like the poor old fella had a terrible life growing up.
You are right about some people, shouldn’t be allowed to have pets, there ought to be more checking on owners when they get the pups. Not after the damage is done.
If I didn’t have Bandit, I would tempted to come and get him, but as he is not comfortable with other dogs, that would be difficult.
I hope the Rescue kennel can offer him some treatment and gentle social contact with gentle dogs.
Good luck with Wendy and you could get a doggie car seat / harness, so she can’t jump /fall out of the car again.
At least you tried with Jake, love.
