Bessie is a 5 year old female Beagle. Bessie is an ex breeding Beagle who is now looking for loving home with another resident dog to help her become a much loved pet. Bessie is very very scared so will need owners who have the time and patience to help her adjust and an understanding of terrified dogs.
She knows nothing of life in a home, walking on a lead, traffic, the Hoover – the list of new experiences for her is endless and it will take time for her to overcome her fears. She will need to be homed with at least one other resident dog, who is happy to interact with her and hopefully show her the ropes. She will gain comfort from having another dog around so this really is a must. Another Beagle would be heaven for Bessie.
Bessie is not yet clean in the house but her foster is working on this with her. It will take time so please don’t apply if you are expecting a ready made dog, Bessie has quite a way to go. She is adorable though and it is so very sad to see a dog who is terrified of life. Love and understand will help her to settle. Bessie has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped and is currently on foster in Guildford Surrey.
*Update July 2015*
Bessie loves her walks and is physically in good strong heath, just lacking in the normal level of Beagle stamina which will improve. She has issues around food and feeding as whilst she loves her grub, she runs off with the food bowl (and manages to keep it upright!) to eat. However she can be hand fed in situ with the others and if you sit with her and hold the bowl down, she will just give in and come and eat.
She has emptied the kitchen bin once and attempted to make off with it once (its bigger than her so she struggled) but the latter is quite frankly just light entertainment as she is not in any way destructive. She is a nervous girl so a home without children will be best for her. She would like a new home with other dogs and preferably and if at all a possible multi dog household where she will be able to fit into the pack.
Bessie has known nothing of home life and it will take time for her to adjust. Once she comes to trust in her surroundings and her new humans she wont ever look back.
