UPDATE: 29 JANUARY 2018: It's getting harder and harder for me (Arthur's foster mom) to understand why adopters aren't falling all over each other for this adorable, wonderful little guy. He loves all people and dogs. He seems to have a total lack of interest in the cat. After getting through transitioning to our schedule, he's the easiest dog ever. He loves to play with his foster siblings and then just curl up in his chair, on the sofa with his foster siblings, or with me. He is the perfect dog for anyone looking for a playmate for their resident dog. He also loves little kids. Let's find this pup the perfect home now!
UPDATE - 11 JANUARY 2018: Arthur is jumping for joy that the weather has finally warmed up a bit. Although he adjusted better than his foster siblings to going out in the cold, he much prefers playing outside at daycare than being stuck inside. A month after arriving here, he has gotten into a routine that makes him the perfect houseguest (don’t tell him he’s only a houseguest please). He plays well with both my dobe and BREW beagle. (Yes, he did aggravate the dobe when they were both asleep on the sofa and he tried to climb over the dobe). He loves people so much that he will be in his glory if he goes to a family with a lot of activity including kids of all ages. Any adopter should remember that he’s young and rambunctious and still has puppy energy and some lack of good judgment. Even in those moments (such as thinking it’s a good idea to climb over the dobe), he’s a happy fellow just loving life.
UPDATE - 26 DECEMBER 2017: Arthur thoroughly enjoyed lounging and playing with his foster siblings over the Christmas weekend while foster mom binge-watched Netflix. He still loves to be with other dogs (doggie daycare can put him in with any group) and then cuddle with foster mom by night.
UPDATE - 8 DECEMBER 2017 (from Arthur's foster mom): This young happy-go-lucky boy has been with me for just under a week. He loves exploring every inch of the yard, most of the time full speed ahead. He also though loves to cuddle and make himself at home on the comfy sofa. He loves all dogs and people. He is not keen on crating but needs some confinement at his young age to help with the housetraining and to keep him out of trouble. He has adjusted though to crating overnight after a very busy day at doggie daycare with additional walks and yard time. He's got the perfect temperament and tells me all the time that he's working on his house manners.
INITIAL IMPRESSIONS: Arthur is a 2-year-old neutered beagle who is fully vetted and available for adoption. He's friendly, good with other dogs but was a stray at the Louisa County (Virginia) Animal Shelter, so his history is unknown. Stay tuned as we get to know Arthur better!
