Suzette is a lively young beagle girl who is full of spunk, but who also likes to snuggle and soak up attention from people. At just over 20 pounds, we describe her as “small but mighty”!

In addition to being tiny, Suzette is also extremely quick and agile and can slip through a door opening, into another dog’s crate during feeding time, or into an open refrigerator before you even know she was there at all. And as she races through the house to go outside in the fenced yard, rather than even thinking about going *around* the furniture, she takes the straightest path which includes jumping over the back of the couch and running across the coffee table. So Suzette could still use some training in house manners, but the good news is that she is very smart and eager to learn. She also loves to lounge on the top of the back of the couch while her people are watching tv or on the computer.

Suzette gets along with the cats and other dogs in her foster home, although she really has no interest in playing with the other dogs. She is competitive around food and needs to be separated from other dogs while eating so that she won’t steal their food. Suzette really likes to be the center of attention and is expected to do well as an only dog or with other dogs who can handle a little bit of snarking if she feels like they are too much in her personal space.

Suzette came to Midwest BREW as a stray from a rural animal control. She has clearly had several litters of puppies and seems to have not lived in a house before, but she is now spayed and has adjusted wonderfully to living indoors with a family. Suzette was not house trained when she first came to her foster home, but she is a fast learner and goes potty as soon as she goes out in the fenced yard. She is crated during the work day and keeps her crate perfectly clean. She is sometimes loud in her crate (she has a very high pitched bark rather than the more traditional beagle bay), but once she is fully house trained, she would likely be fine loose in the house.

Suzette’s ideal home would be a family who will take time to continue her training, have a sense of humor about her antics (like jumping on tables), be extremely vigilant about keeping her from dashing out the door, and give her lots of snuggles and attention. In return, she will give you lots of entertainment, snuggles on the couch and in bed, and eternal loyalty and adoration.
