Frodo needs a new home! (JHB fourways area)



*NOTE:* beagles are high maintenance dogs. They need constant attention and lots of exercise and mental stimulation. Training is essential for puppies! They are easily bored, and WILL bark and howl and disturb your neighbours. They WILL dig up your garden and chew your plants/shoes/kreepy-krawly/clothes/sprinkler system/everything they see ESPECIALLY if they are bored. PLEASE remember these factors when purchasing a puppy!! Beagles are pack animals and NEED to be part of your family. A beagle living outside, alone is a recipe for disaster.*

Please so some reading and research into the breed if you have not had a beagle before. Dog Breed Info has some valuable info as well as Wikipedia. You may find some interesting info on Burke’s Backyard too. **

Hi my name is Frodo

I am a mature Beagle gentleman. I’m 5 years old. I’m loving and kind, loves a good meal and I’m trained (I know “Sit”, “Stay”, “Out”, “NO!” and I’ll wait till you give me the go ahead to start eating. I’m very good at remembering all these instructions till you want to show me off to your friends, at which point I might suffer from a bout of amnesia).

Life can be confusing to me. I don’t like balloons – things floating around on it’s own just is not natural! I need space and attention (I know I know, someone with my looks has to fight off all the attention that just seems to come my way but don’t be fooled, I do need it). Don’t leave me alone; I take that crap very personal.

Please let me stay inside. I am a consummate feet warmer and will sit close to you on those long lonely nights.

My butlers are emigrating and they are already crying about me staying behind, so please give them some peace of mind that you are a good person, that you will love me, care for me, scratch my back and play often.

I’ve had the snip (and I thought it was just a regular damn checkup!), all my jabs, microchip and come free.

        If I had to compare myself to a flower, I would probably say,I’m a sausage.

    I’ve spoken to the owner. He is going for a trial run to his new potential home this weekend. If all works out he will soon have two new Beagles to play with.

    Hi Patti

    I am interested in adopting a Beagle and it seems like you have a 2 year old Male in Jnb who needs to be homed?

    We live in Durban and would be able to give him a loving home if he is still available.
