Lizzie (Storrs Mansfield)

Type of Animal: 
Beagle Mix

Meet Lizzie, an approxiamtely 5 year old 40 lb beagle mix who is currently being fostered in Storrs Mansfield, CT.

Lizzie loves to cuddle and will maneuver herself into your lap while you're sitting on the couch.

She loves attention but is also content to laying at your feet as long as she’s near you. (She's huge follower, and will most likely follow you around the house until she becomes fully settled, maybe forever.)

As you'll see in her video, Lizzie is good with kids. However, small children can become too much for her with their high-energy, and then she tends to go hide away in another room. For this reason we believe that older children who understand boundaries and personal space would be a better fit for Lizzie.

Lizzie knows a few commands, like, "stay" (although she could use some practice on this one), "go to your bed" and "lay down". She will come when called, even if you're calling your kids!

Lizzie loves to go for walks and walks well on a leash. She's a Beagle though, so if given the opportunity, she will take off. Therefore she must always be on a leash or in a fenced in back yard.

Lizzie does not like cats. As for other dogs, Lizzie has been selective historically with which dogs she likes. This could be because she's selective, or because she was not afforded a proper introduction. Anyone with another dog who wishes to adopt Lizzie will be need to bring their dog for a proper meet & greet.

The best home for Lizzie is probably a relatively quiet home with someone who will provide her with calm stability, basic obedience training (as she's never had that) and adequate exercise.
