Hi! My name is The Leaky Cauldron "Lazy Leaky." I am guessed to be a 6 year old beagle mix. I'm not that big and am easy to pick up. I currently weigh about 32lbs.
I can't tell you my experiences in life, but foster mom says I act like a dog that was used to being on my own, outside. I pretty much need to be outside, either in a nice fenced yard or on a walk. I do not need to be crated, but I will go into my crate. When indoors I usually prefer to be by myself where no one can sneak up on me. However, in the morning before I get up, I enjoy a petting session. I also like having a confident dog to pal around with. I feel so much braver when I see another dog go to mom and dad, or new people. I get excited just like other dogs and even like belly rubs and petting.
As a matter of fact, call me for a walk and I will come running to you. I like to explore, but I do not pull on a leash or chase after other animals. I don't mind meeting other dogs on my walks, but prefer to avoid crowds, well quite honestly any place that is loud. I can get a stubborn streak going if you cut my walk too short, but I will head home.
I can take short rides, but I really do not feel comfortable in the car.
I am a slender guy, and a picky eater. I will eat, but it needs to be placed away from everyone else. I especially like it when mom throws some of my foster sister's homemade food in my bowl And since I was used to getting drinks from puddles, I have to get a little extra water in my bowl. Again, if I see another dog come up to you, I feel brave and will come for a treat. Mom took me to the doctor and all my labs look great, so I am in fine shape just learning how to be fed on a regular basis.
I am good at doing my business outside since I am out there a lot of the time.
They give me lots of freedom at my foster home, as this is a big change for me getting used to a fenced yard and a house to live in.
I am not a lot of work and don't expect much. Of course, it is the unexpected things that I do that say "I am feeling brave" that will give any adopter that thrill of helping a gentle, soul such as myself make it in this big world.
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
