Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Curtis. He is a tiny Beagle/Pekingese mix, He weighs 19 lbs and has a short hair coat. Curtis is 3 years old and was found as a stray. We believe he is no more than 2 based on his personality and characteristics. Barks and Meows Rescued Curtis from a high kill shelter. He was almost feral when he arrived in foster care. He hadn't been abused but it was obvious he had never experienced human touch or living indoors. After 1 1/2 months of conditioning, he now loves being held by his foster family. He evens sleeps on his foster parent's bed at night. Curtis has a great appetite and will bay when one is preparing his dinner. He is very food motivated so it has helped to get him to trust people. He is a good boy in the bath as he freezes when frightened. Curtis rides well in the vehicle as long as he travels on an empty stomach. He loves being with other dogs but we believe he would chase kitties. Curtis will need to learn how to walk on a body harness and leash. He is typical of his breed in that if he got loose, he would follow his nose and be gone. No access to the front door for this little guy. He is quick as a whip and would be gone in seconds once it was opened. He is very good with children though young ones who are squealing and running around would frighten him at least at the onset. This fellow came to us crate trained, though is not crated in his foster home. He is both housebroken and paper trained. He would require a lot of toys and stimuli when his family is out of the house. He enjoys being cuddled and is very quiet unless he wants dinner or is playing with the other dogs and they have something he wants. He plays well with all sizes of dogs. The ideal home for Curtis is one with another resident dog and no cat. He is typical of his breed in that he would suffer from separation anxiety if left alone without another dog. The family will have to have patience as it will take some time for him to learn to trust his new family and their routines. Curtis is neutered, up to date with vaccines, heartworm tested negative, dewormed and microchipped.
