Age: 1.5 years old
6/10: Blueberry is a really sweet and easy going dog. Immediately upon arriving at his foster home yesterday he was giving us little kisses. He easily blended with the rest of the pack and in no time was playing chase. Blueberry is not at all shy and loves getting pets. He has been a bit uncertain about some house things – live the TV and stairs. But he also seems to quickly get comfortable with new experiences – he even figured the doggy door out by himself. He doesn’t inhale his food and gently takes treats. Blueberry didn’t get upset when a couple of his foster sibling took part of his cookie (he broke the cookies up into pieces).
Blueberry has a nice energy level. He is great at playing and running around the yard, but also settles down easily. But with all this playing we’ve only heard him bark once!
He spent his first night in a kennel and did not fuss at all. Blueberry also seems to understand that he should do his business outside. There have been no accidents or marking.
He is smaller than a basset hound size weighing in at about 45 pounds. He doesn’t have the heavy boned limbs of a basset or the long ears, but the basset in him is clear. The result is very cute. I’ve included a picture of him next to my basset for comparison (my basset isn’t big – he is about 55 pounds). And as can be seen in his pictures, his coloring in beautiful.
Blueberry is a 1.5 yrs old (approx) neutered beagle/basset boy. He's super friendly and playful with other dogs. He was an owner give-up at the Louisa Co. Animal Shelter but little information was given with him.
