Leo · Adopted 2018


Bio at the Time of Adoption

Hi! My name is Leo & I'm a very handsome 7 or 8 year old male beagle. I belonged to an elderly gentleman who went into a nursing home, & he was no longer able to keep me. I've lived with children as young as 1 & 3 years old, & I am very good with them! I am an easygoing & affectionate fellow. I'm a happy & playful fellow! I am also quite active! Recently I jumped a 3.5 foot fence. In my younger days, I jumped a 5 foot fence - but it's very possible I can't jump that high anymore. I like to get on furniture with my people, & I used to sleep with my owner. I am quite strong & will pull on my leash sometimes. But other times, I am really easy to walk. I have not lived with other dogs or cats, so Nittany Beagle Rescue isn't sure how Leo is with them. Leo is housetrained. He will be neutered before he is adopted. When Nittany Beagle Rescue picked up Leo, he was quite rambunctious in a car. However, when we took him to the vet for his vaccines & check-up, he was well behaved in the car. So he may just need experience riding in a car. He was well behaved at the vet office. When Leo is loose, he will get on the scent of a bunny & go! So it's important that he be in a fenced yard where the fence is high enough to contain him or securely on a leash. Leo is living in a boarding kennel & anxious to find his forever home.
