Hello humans, Iggy here. When most people first see me, they think I’m 4 or 5 years old. My vet lady thinks I’m closer to 2 or 3 since my teeth are in great shape and I have as much energy as a puppy! I’m a beagle mix, the humans think I have some pointer in me. I’m a little on the skinny side, but that’s improving as I have found out I love food and treats! I get really excited when I hear the food in my bowl and my foster mom is making me sit nice before she gives it to me.
I get along with my foster dog quite well. Her and I will have spurts of play time and then we like to pass out next to each other. I know that she likes to be in charge, but she doesn’t mind when I try to take over every once and a while. I do get a little nervous around groups of dogs especially if they start chasing me. I think I’d do best with dogs that are laid back, but don’t mind ME starting play time. I also have this human boy that I absolutely love! I get so excited when i see him that I tend to jump and give him lots of kisses and I’m working on that. He seems to like it though, he giggles for me 🙂
One thing that I’m not fond of is that kennel thing. My humans try and put me in there when they leave for the day, but I don’t like to. They usually trick me with a treat. I’m a little sad at first, then I just nap for the day. They do leave me out over night and boy do I love that! I try to jump in bed with them, but will eventually just snuggle on the couch with my foster sister.
All in all I think I’m a great guy. I’ll be that puppy when you want me to be, but will chill out if that’s what you’re looking for. I love kids and dogs of all ages. Will you give me chance? I won’t let you down!
