Linus is our newest pet of the week! We met him at the Pups & Pilsners event held September 21 in Arlington, VA. See below as his “Mom” talks about him:
This is my new puppy Linus. He is a brand new addition to the family. He is about 5 months old and a beagle/bassett mix possibly. He was staying at a pet boarding facility and needed a forever home. At first, I tried to get some friends to adopt him but I just couldn’t resist his face and he was mine after only a few hours. He came into a home with 2 dogs already and he is loving every minute of it!
As the baby of the family, he likes to rile up big brother Blue and big sister Pixie and engage them in play. They usually comply and sometimes at night it sounds like a church choir in the house. The 3 of them have been getting along pretty well so far. Occasionally Blue and Pixie put Linus in his place but he is always determined to keep up. When he is not playing with his brother and sister, he likes to hang out on the couch and cuddle. He is very laid back without a care in the world. Of course, as a beagle, he follows his nose everywhere. He was having a blast at Pups and Pilsners with all the new scents. His nose hasn’t gotten him into too much trouble yet, but it’s only a matter of time before he finds himself in hot water.
I can’t wait to see where life takes us with Linus. He has already made our house more lively (and noisy). He is such a sweet dog and has so much love to give. I’m glad we could give him all that love in return.
