Clayton is a wonderful little beagle who came to his foster home seven weeks ago with Grayson. He and Grayson were given up together and are very similar. So much so that much of Grayson’s description also fits Clayton. Only Clayton is a bit shyer. He also loves to cuddle, but he hasn’t quite embraced it to the level that Grayson has. He also loves to cuddle with Grayson, and likes to rest his head on his back. He is still getting used to coming in from the yard on his own – if he can do it with the pack he is fine. But usually he does like his brother Grayson - crouches down near the door wagging his tail and waits for someone to get him. Today however, we have the door open and he has freely moved between the house and the yard. He also doesn’t want to eat in front of us – or around the other dogs. So he and Grayson eat in another room. While Grayson will sometime approach the food while we are leaving the room, Clayton stays away from it until we leave. But often food is left – I don’t know where the famous beagle appetite is. Maybe he knows he needs to lose about 5 pounds off of his 30 pounds.
Grayson and Clayton were given up together and I think they may have been outside a lot. The yard seems to be their comfort zone. But they both also love the bed (the people bed). So much so that they both got over their fear of moving around the house – but when making the journey he tries to avoid getting waylaid by pets.
Grayson and Clayton are really sweet boys. They are still a bit overwhelmed since coming to their foster home, but they find a lot of comfort in each other (they were given up together). These boys love wandering the yard, and love to cuddle up together on a favorite chair. And they are happy to go to the kennel at night.
Clayton is housetrained and not destructive.
Although they easily go from house to yard coming back in is still a challenge. We’re working on that and they are making progress!
Clayton is a 4-5yr old little male neutered beagle gentleman that is fully vetted and eagerly wanting to learn to be a loved companion. He's a little reserved but friendly and good with others dogs. He was an owner give up in Culpeper County but the reason is unknown.
