NEW - 12 JUNE 2018: Jackson and Jacob are 2-year-old neutered male beagle bassets. They are a bonded pair who were owner give ups to the Rockingham-Harrisonburg SPCA in Virginia. Jackson and Jacob were surrendered by their owners because they were moving. They are siblings that were purchased together. They are both very stubborn on the leash but one will keep up with the other once he gets a little forward momentum going. They will stop together for an hour to smell a blade of grass. They’re very much in sync with each other. They both met other dogs and got along fine. Appropriate greeting, sniffed and let the other sniff and return, then did puppy bows and play pops. They love playing with toys and wrestling with each other. Their basic personality can be described in just a couple words (friendly/playful, laid back, timid . . .) Stubborn, inquisitive, clueless, sniffy, cautious. They became really playful with each other when we threw a squeaky toy in the mix. They’re confident and friendly when they’re together, but they are anxious and unsure when apart. Don’t be in a hurry when walking them.
The previous owner said that Jackson and Jacob have not been around young children or cats, but they did live with some rabbits, who were kept in a cage. They have never tried to bite anyone. They are house trained and crate trained but may need a refresher in a new home. The previous owner also mentioned that the boys can be a little noisy at times.
Jackson and Jacob will be available soon.
