3/2/12: Meet Sprocket! He's a mellow guy who enjoys getting belly rubs. Sprocket is a bit of a couch potato, but he gets very excited for food and treats. He learned to sit for a treat and take it gently from my hand. Although he does enjoy his food, he doesn't gobble up his food like many beagles. He also likes to chew on nylabones and deer antlers and is learning how to get food out of a kong. Sprocket hasn't had a single accident since being in my house and it's likely he was in a home before since he was already neutered when BREW picked him up at the shelter.
Sprocket is generally good on his walks. He doesn't pull going forward, but sometimes he likes to take his time and sniff all the spring buds that are popping up, as well as the usual animal smells in our neighborhood. Therefore, he sometimes he needs a little coaxing to keep that forward momentum going. He stays in the crate during the workday, but in his forever home could have run of the house as I haven't noticed him chewing on anything he shouldn't. He's doing great in the crate. I haven't heard a peep from him, except for a little whining when you first get home because he's so excited to see us! Sprocket didn't understand our stairs at first (they're very steep), but now he has no problems going up and down all on his own.
He's a sweet guy that loves getting pet or hugged. Come meet this boy if you're looking for a mellow guy who's content to snooze in his bed or chew his toys.
This is Sprocket - he's super friendly and great with other dogs. We don't know a lot about him so stay tuned here. His foster family will send us updates.
