I have had Gerty living with me for just over a month now and have loved every minute. She is a 6 year old Beagle. Gerty came from a puppy farm where she was used for breeding. For this reason she can sometimes be quite nervous and scatty when doing new or seeing new things (swans were a very scary encounter).
She is the sweetest little girl and so easy to care for! She is very easy going and loves her crate which gives her security and where she will happily relax most of the day and night. Gerty loves a fuss and especially loves belly rubs and will often flop onto her back and give you the puppy dog eyes to ask for some fuss. Whilst looking after Gerty we went on many different exciting walks from beaches to woodland walk. One of her favourite activities on a walk is to run around and find as many new and different smells as she can.
She will happily greet other dogs but if they come across too boisterous she will put them in their place. I have not let her off lead as we have not had time to work on her re-call training, however I feel like once she has established a bond with her owner off-lead walking could be a possibility for her.
Gerty is as good as gold in the house. She does not beg for food and is fully crate trained. Gerty is not fully house trained yet and will still have the odd accident, sometimes when she’s left alone she will wee in her bed. She loves treats and chews and is not a fussy eater.” She is a lovely dog and deserves her forever home.
