The new pictures show Claire's silly side. She makes everyone laugh all the time with her tiny little self. She is surrounded by big dogs who love her and her new buddy is the cat (as you can see).
Her Maine foster mom tells us that after a few days of being skittish and worried, “She is doing WONDERFUL!!! She is happy, bouncy, and inquisitive, and she comes running for attention and no longer tries to avoid our touch. She listens pretty well for a beagle and is learning the boundaries. It does my heart good to hear her tail thumping! I am so pleased with how she's doing. She does LOVE to be outside. I wish I had a fenced yard. She's a good girl, and she really does try to please. I am pleased with her progress so far. She is learning to sit and wait while I put her food bowl down and give her the okay to eat --- that's HUGE for a beagle!!! She rarely barks. Mostly only when she's playing with Zeke. But if she is out a lot and has no other dogs, Claire may whine if crated and left alone. She also has to watch very closely for signs to go out, as sometimes they are very subtle. Claire has been great with my three cats. She is NOT a dog that can be crated or left alone in a house all day while someone is at work. This is a VERY busy little girl who is eager to please and is very sweet, but she needs a way to channel the energy. She needs an owner who is tolerant of the breed, will watch her like a hawk, and make her tow the line, because she is a typical beagle: she's smart and will listen, but she will push the boundaries and if you give her an inch, she'll take three miles. Also, anyone who might visit can’t expect her to warm up to them at the first meeting, because it takes her a couple of days. But she jumps right up into my lap and curls up and promptly goes to sleep. Once she feels safe, she is very cuddly. "
We’re so proud of sweetie Claire and how well she is doing! Here is a video of that adorable girl
Please note: We do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed. They are cared for in our wonderful network of foster homes throughout New England. Our expectation is that, after an applicant is approved throught the rescue, they will meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
