Hello, my name is Francie and I am the perfect mix of playful and lazy – LOL!! My people say that I am a happy, funny and easy-to-have-around hound! A perfect day for me begins with snoozing near my people until they are done with their coffee, then we are off for a walk. I love to follow my nose, explore and see new things. My people love to take me on adventures, and I hope you do too! After our walk, it is time for a snooze. I would appreciate it if you have lots of comfy dog beds, even if you do, I am known for taking a snooze on a pile of laundry.
I get along with all dog friendly dogs – and I really love meeting new people. When we are out on adventure walks, I like to go up to people, big and small, for ear scratches. I have been great with dog friendly dogs I have met too. My foster family doesn’t think I need another dog in my forever home if my new people are home a lot. Although, I really would like a doggy friend to help me get on a routine and learn to socialize with my new people. If you are not home a lot, I would need another friend so I’m not worried. When my foster mom leaves for work, I do bark for a few minutes, but then I get to work on my frozen peanut butter kong and chew toys. And when my people are outside, I do like to be able to see them so will start singing (bark bark! Hee hee!). As long as I can see my people I am happy!
When I came to Underdog the vet said I needed to go on a diet. I have been on a weight loss journey for a couple months and made great progress with a healthy diet and exercise. I only have a few more pounds to go to get to the goal set by the vet. My people said my transformation has been amazing – not only did I lose weight, but my healthy kibble has made my fur look so much better and I have a lot more energy to frolic in the yard and go on adventures.
We have been working on crate training, I’m not the biggest fan and will bark. Currently I sleep on the floor in a dog bed next to my people’s bed. My people want to be sure you know that I am a potty training champion and do my business outside. Yay me! I’ve recently discovered what toys are and I love play. I’ve also begun to experiment with jumping up onto comfy looking furniture. I may have short legs, but I can get myself up onto just about any comfy spot that tickles my fancy!
Like a typical beagle, I like to follow my nose and have strong opinions. Foster mom says I snuffle like a pig when I pick up a scent, which is one of my most endearing qualities. We are working on perfecting my leash walking – sometimes I freeze on the leash if my people are going in a direction I don’t want to go. It is my way of saying “c’mon let’s go!”
I am really a delightful girl who is ready to find my forever family. One that will take me on lots of adventures, wander around the neighborhood and explore different parks – keeping my nose filled with new and exciting smells is the way to win me over! I promise to do my best to be a loyal and loving friend. All I need now is to find a patient forever family who will love me unconditionally and never give up on me! If you are looking for a happy girl then you have just met your perfect match! Love and kisses, Francie
