Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Beatrice. She was one of 12 puppies born in a home to Mommy Princess in North Bay. Mommy and her litter and 19 other hounds were confiscated from their home and surrendered to the Humane Society. Barks and Meows Rescue took Mommy Princess as well as Charlotte and her sister Beatrice. Beatrice is a leader, not a follower. Beatrice is the alpha of the two sisters. She is extremely affectionate and listens quite well for a hound. She is very food-focused and motivated making positive reinforcement training easy. They have other dogs in their foster home to play with and will do so regularly. They are now housebroken but will use pee pads if the door is not available. They both love to be outdoors, playing with toys, chasing each other, and chewing on sticks. Offering them food will have them both coming running in when it's time. Beatrice is learning to climb as per her breed mix so will now sleep on her foster parent's bed at night. She loves to cuddle on the couch and chair with her family members or other dogs. She is fed three times daily, in her crate, Royal Canin Medium Breed Puppy Food. Beatrice is sweet and loving. She is about 4 pounds less than her sister and not as tall. Mommy Princess is 55lbs so we expect these girls to be medium size dogs when fully grown. They have both had all three sets of vaccines and been dewormed. Beatrice is being spayed and has had her small umbilical hernia repaired. The sisters are both on Heartworm/flea/tick prevention during the season. Both girls love to be held and cuddled. The ideal home for them is a family that has or has had hounds in the past. This breed is not for everyone as they can never be off-leash unless in a fully fenced yard with the correct height. They are pure hounds so will follow their nose. Going for hikes and walks each time will be an adventure as they will stop to smell everything. A cat-free home is mandatory as they will have a very high prey drive. A fully fenced yard (wooden, not chain-link), another resident dog, and a Veterinarian History of Compliance is mandatory to apply for darling Beatrice. They will not be adopted out together. We do not adopt to families with children under the age of 6.
