Name:   Charlie Bastrop  
Description:   ~ 20 lbs ~ 8-10 yrs old ~ fostered in Baltimore, MD~

Charlie (red beagle) is older but has the energy of 6-7. He loves to play and go on walks and will do best in a home with other dogs. He is still shy around humans but eventually warms up and is a sweetheart. He enjoys cuddling once he knows and trusts you. He is crate trained, leash and house trained and has done very well. Not very vocal. He is not an alpha male, very much a follower. He will jump on the beds and furniture but listens well to commands and sleeps on the floor in a dog bed. Because he has no incisors, he needs to be on a soft food diet.

Charlie should DEFINITELY be in a home without cats. He would never attack a cat, but he will back one under the bed and go under after it. When the resident cat, Weezie, shows him the claws and issues death threats, he cries and squeals along with the barking. At midnight, last night, my grandson was tending to Charlie's scratched and bleeding nose. (Weezie doesn't take prisoners. Tom, the orange cat, won't come out of the basement.)
