Bio at the Time of Adoption

Hi! My name is Ferris! I'm a very sweet & affectionate 8-year old male beagle. I want to be with my person so much, that I will press up against them! I'm good with other dogs! I tend to be very submissive with them. I'm already neutered. I'm also housetrained. However, I am terribly frightened of everything - including going outside. So this creates difficulty with housetraining, even though I have the idea that I should go outside. It is difficult to get me outside because I'm so afraid. But I am incredibly food motivated and it's possible to lure me outside with treats. However, that takes time, and so I need someone who has the time & patience to work with me on my fears. (I'm also afraid of loud sounds). I have been raised with other dogs & I'm great with them. I'm very submissive with other dogs. If another dog snaps at me (because maybe I get too close to their food), I will run away from the dog. I've also been raised with children. However, due to my fears, a quiet home without children would be best. I don't play - I'm too afraid. I want to sleep in bed with my person at night, & be next to them on the couch. I do mark in the house, so my person will need to work with me on that. We don't know if Ferris is cratetrained. A crate may help him feel secure. On the other hand, if he doesn't like the crate, it is critical he not be put in one. We will have more pictures of Ferris soon! If you are right for Ferris, please think about giving him a lifetime, loving home!
