How is this dog on a lead?
As is normal they start off pulling but settle down.
How is this dog off the lead?
Both are usually on the lead. On previous occasions Barney has usually stuck close by as he is a fairly timid dog.
Nuisance barker or destructive.
Not currently. They will alert you to something strange.
Tolerance to being alone.
As long as they are together they are fine left alone. Barney becomes distressed when separated from Sadie.
Barney is not like your typical beagle. He is very placid and ‘‘chilled out.’’ He spends most of his day sun baking. Barney loves nothing more than cuddles, pats, scratches and will stick close by his human family. He only becomes animated when playing with Sadie. He is extremely attached to her, and loves cuddling up to her and grooming her.
Sadie likes a good game of tug of war with her owners or with Barney. She likes to play chasy with Barney too. She loves attention and pats and needs to feel part of the family. She also loves a good chest rub.
When meeting new people or dogs Barney appears reserved but warms up. Barney can find enthusiastic dogs overwhelming and will usually cower and hide.
Sadie will sometimes get ruffled with Barney when he jumps on her while she is playing with her toys but not in an aggressive manner.
Barney and Sadie are extremely attached and sleep together in the one bed. Barney would be ideal for any home. He is not a very active dog and would suit anyone. Barney loves affection and would suit a family with kids but they need to be teenagers because Sadie can get a little excited and may accidentally bump a youngster over. Sadie would benefit from a reasonable sized yard with grass as she loves to lay and roll on it in the sun. Most of all they need to be showered with attention. They must be re-homed together.
The dogs are lovely all round. Barney appears shy and timid but he is actually extremely warm, affectionate and friendly. He is very attached to Sadie and his human family. New surroundings worry him initially but he will relax in time. A reassuring cuddle can help. People say he often looks sad, but it's just his face. Once he gets to know you, he will become more animated. It;s like he has an 'old soul.'
Sadie has great hearing and will often move her head back and forth in response to unusual sounds. She knows basic commands (sit, stay, lay, paw) and she will also sit and wait until she is given the command to eat. She performs an endearing little dance while dinner is being prepared and if late, she will provide a friendly reminder. She is friendly, loyal, affectionate, playful and adores Barney.
