7 FEBRUARY 2016: Hey! Yup, speaking to my forever family, where ever you may be. My name is Tassie, and I decided it was time for me to say something about myself! I am a very happy beagle girl. I love, love, love people and other dogs. And the few times I have met kids, I love them too. I love to run around in my back yard. My only issue is that I am a bit afraid to be out of my “comfort zone”. My foster mom is trying to help me walk better on the leash. I walk ok for a bit but then want to go back home. Hopefully now that the snow has finally melted, we will be trying again. It looks like a lot of fun but I have to gain a bit more confidence.
When I came to my foster home, I was a very scared little girl, but I am going much better. Loud noises still scare me but I’m sure they would bother you too.
I enjoy my foster brothers but wish they would play more. I really would like a sibling who will play with me. But I also enjoy cuddling with my humans.
I am not food aggressive but will steal food if I can get away with it. Mom says I’m a stinker!
I am house-broken. I am a very good girl with that. I actually have run of the house when my humans work.
As much as I like it here, I really would like a forever home and a family I can love!
7 JUNE 2015: Tassie has been with us for almost 2 months. She came to us a very scared little girl. But once she got comfortable in our home and her new surroundings, she has blossomed. She is still a bit scared especially of loud noises. She is very afraid of thunderstorms. But I just hold her close and let her know all is ok.
Tassie gets along great with her foster brothers. She is not food aggressive but will steal it if given the opportunity. But that’s what beagles do. She also does not bark a lot. I think she would enjoy a home with another dog.
She was crated for the first month and kept it clean all day. I have now given her the freedom of being out of the crate while we are at work and she has not had any accidents.
She likes to cuddle on the sofa when we are watching TV. And she really likes to just roam the backyard.
We are working on her leash manners. It took a while for me to get her to go on walks. She was afraid of being out of her “comfort zone” (the house or back yard). She does pull on the leash but we are working on that.
13 DECEMBER 2014: Tassie enjoyed sitting in any lap she could find during our December adoption event!
20 MAY 2014: Tassie's vetting has been completed, and she is now available for adoption and looking for a foster home!
Original info: Tassie is a 2-year-old female who will be available for adoption after her vetting is completed. She is very friendly and smiles at you but is a little submissive. She is also good with other dogs but was a stray in Louisa County, Virginia, so her history is unknown.
