Valerie

Gender: Female
Breed: Beagle
Secondary Breed: Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog)
Status: Adoptable

AN ACTIVE AND PRETTY GIRL:  5 years old / Approx. 40 lbs.  Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm.  Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week.  I’m a nice dog whose whole-body wiggles when it’s time for me to go for a walk or spend time with the volunteers.  Once I know you, I love snuggling & being with you & I’ve met some great dogs at the MM shelter that I love playing with, so if you have a playful dog at home, let’s meet. I did get into a scuffle with a dog when I went home with a volunteer for the weekend, so I should meet any dogs that will be living in my forever home to make sure our personalities mesh.  I also shouldn’t live with a, toy breed dog as I see them as prey.  I’ve had my teeth cleaned, so my mouth is fresh, but not the talking back kind of fresh.  LOL  I don’t always show well at adoptions as I get scared & tend to stay toward the back of my kennel, so please ask one of the experienced trainers or counselors to take me into a meet & greet room so that we can get to know each other. That way I’ll be able to relax more & show you my true happy & loving personality!  I can be timid or a little fearful in new surroundings, so please be patient & give me time to adjust to my new home. My potty manners have been very good on the shelter schedule, & I also had excellent potty manners in my temp. foster home.  I’m gentle when taking treats, though I value toys and food a bit too much & have shown some aggression regarding them.  There have been a few bites related to this as well as when someone stuck their finger in my crate as it’s my safe spot & I think I felt fearful.  The guarding my space & resources is very manageable, so please talk to the head trainers or head counselors about my training – they have so many wonderful tips to help me be successful in a loving home!  One tip is to use treats when you would like me to do something as I’ll do just about anything for a treat!  I’m curious, lovable & friendly, & can’t wait to find my new family!  Speaking of training, I’m a proud graduate of the Mostly Mutts University training program! I have mastered ALL of the MMU commands, which include: ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘lie down’, ‘come’, 'drop it', ‘leave it’, 'go to your place', & loose leash walking. I've also learned to wait patiently at doorways before walking through them on command, & to accept nice strangers without jumping.  I shouldn’t live in a home with cats or birds, as I met a cat & bird at MM’s & was a little too interested in him. A home with no kids is best for me due to the behavior listed above & please feed me separate from other dogs as well as having separate toy spaces.  You’ll probably notice that I sit to one side, the vet thinks it’s an old ligament injury.  I take Glucosamine to help with it, & it doesn't slow me down at all.  I love to get out & go for walks & easily enjoy a several mile walk a day, so grab my leash & let's go!  Energy level: 5-7.  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed & my adoption fee is $299.00 which also includes an engraved name tag, Martingale collar & leash.
