Luna is a spayed 9 year old beagle with no past or present medical conditions. Owners have had Luna for 9 years and are surrendering because of time and traveling situations.
Luna has not lived with children but has been around children in varying ages. Luna is gentle and tolerant of children. Luna has also not lived with other cats or dogs. when Luna sees a dog outside she is curious and try’s to go towards them with a loose body while barking.
Luna enjoys getting bathes and isn’t bothered when the vet trims her nails. Previous owners do not know how Luna would react to getting her food bowl or bones and treats touched because they have never attempted to take away anything they’ve given her. When someone unfamiliar approaches the house Luna will bark but once they enter will greet people with a loose wiggly body.
For the new family to know
Luna was described as Friendly, affectionate and independent. Luna has a low activity level and enjoys relaxing around the house. Luna is mostly house trained and only has accidents if she goes to long without being taken for a walk outside. If Luna gets walked 3 times a day she will not have an accident in the house. When left alone in the house Luna is well behaved. Luna knows the command throw it away (she will drop what’s in her mouth).Luna enjoys slow walks on the leash but has never been walked off leash. Luna eats one meal a day in the morning and prefers Purina dry food. Through the rest of the day Luna was fed treats like carrots cabbage and other vegetables.
Behavior during intake
Luna was shy during intake and stayed by owner but allowed counselor to approach, scan and collar her. When getting Luna into the kennel she was tense with a stiff body but allowed to be picked up.
When off leash with other dogs, Luna is anxious, exhibits defensive behavior and will overcorrect when dogs are pushy in greeting
Luna continues to exhibit defensive behavior when off leash with other dogs
