UPDATE - 14 MARCH 2017: Jayla has been with us for approximately a month. She is the sweetest little beagle girl and just melts your heart when she looks up at you with those beagle eyes. She does have a hard time trusting. But once you have earned her trust, she will be your best buddy. She is a bit skittish but I think in time, as she gains more confidence that will improve. Jayla loves to play with her foster sister and they will run around the yard enjoying each other’s company. She also likes to play with the dog toys.
While I am cautious stating that a beagle is housebroken, I can say that she has been doing all her potty business outside and has kept her crate clean for 7+ hours. She does not signal at the door but if I watch for the signs, like pacing, I can get her out and she does potty.
Jayla does like her food and I have to stand guard that she does not try to share some of her foster sibling’s food. She also loves her treats.
I do believe Jayla will do much better in a home with another, non-alpha dog. She would definitely be more comfortable with a buddy to pal around with.
Original info: Jayla is a 2-year-old, 22-pound, spayed female who was a great mom to her beagle mix puppies and is now ready for her new life. She was crate trained while raising her babies but was moved to the kennels when the puppies needed more space, so she may be out of practice. She's super sweet but submissive with strangers and very playful with other dogs. She was pregnant and abandoned at the Cumberland Animal Shelter so her history is unknown. Jayla is available for fostering or adoption. (Note: the cherry eye seen in Jayla's photos older has been corrected.)
