HISTORY:
Beau was found as a stray in rural NE Louisiana. When he was found, he had ear infections, was underweight, heartworm positive, and had an old eye injury leaving him blind in one eye.

ABOUT:
Beau’s foster home describes him as inquisitive, goofy, loving, and patient. Our vet has given Beau a 5/5 stars review as he is very sweet and easy to handle. Although Beau is not a high energy/hyper dog he would probably love a home who wants to take him on meandering walks where he can follow his nose. A suburban or rural home with lots of smells will be ideal for Beau. Beau is very food motivated and is doing well learning some house-pet tricks: sit, down, come etc. His memory is best when you have a treat in hand. Beau is excellent at going potty outside.

Beau is excellent with dogs out in public and meeting them on leash. We expect Beau would be comfortable going places you expect to encounter other dogs. When Beau first arrived in his foster home he had some insecurities with the other dogs walking near him while he was resting or sleeping. Beau will need some time to feel completely comfortable around any dogs that he lives with, but once he feels safe he becomes a seamless member of his pack. Beau will need to have a crate made available to him as he often chooses to sleep inside an open crate when he wants to feel safe and secure. Beau is used to being crated while no one is home.

Beau is excellent with people and is friendly and outgoing with everyone he meets inside or outside the home, but we will require that all adoptive homes have children 14 or older. Beau can be protective of food or treats that aren’t immediately chewed and swallowed with both people and pets. Visiting children should not be an issue as long as long-lasting high-value treats are not given at the time of their visit.

Beau has escaped a fenced yard in the past. He does not appear to scale the fence directly, but he will use any opportunity made available to him: Loose boards, garbage cans he can get on to assist him in getting over the fence. He is always looking. His foster home has a 6ft fence and has not had an issue with him, but he is only allowed in the yard under direct supervision. Beau cannot be left unattended in a yard.

Beau has completed treatment for heartworm. He will need a final heartworm test to confirm the treatment was successful. This test is due in August and is covered by Lulu’s Locker Rescue.
