9/3: Yahoo is an energetic dog. He loves running around the yard. And running. And running. He is a great playmate for the other dogs in the house – he is usually leading a game of chase. Yahoo also loves to wrestle. If no one is available for play, he will toss toys around by himself. And sometimes Yahoo will play fetch. Given his energy, Yahoo should have a fenced yard where he can play and explore.
Yahoo does settle down nicely. He loves to cuddle. A favorite place for him is on the back of the chair with his head resting on my shoulder. Yahoo also gives nice little kisses. Yahoo has been good with the kids he has met.
Yahoo also likes to check stuff out. He will collect things and drag them around the house. But he hasn’t destroyed anything more than magazines and newspapers.
Yahoo can be a bit shy around strangers, but he opens up quickly. A couple of treats or pets and you’ll have a friend for life.
As far as beagles go, Yahoo isn’t a big barker. Yahoo will bark at the wildlife and neighbor dogs, but isn’t noisy inside unless he is very excited (like when my husband was singing badly!).
He is house trained and knows how to use the doggy door. In typical beagle fashion, he is a fast eater and loves his treats. Yahoo is a nice size – about 15 inches at the shoulder and 35 pounds. And the pictures speak for how gorgeous he is.[youtube=http://youtu.be/0ZSgwcMA7es&w=580]
