Favorite toy: Anything with a squeaker
Owners: Marsha & Joe
ASPCA personality Type: Busy Bee – I’m a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job’s done, I’ll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings.
Addie is almost three but I’m sure she’ll always look like a puppy. It’s nearly impossible to resist those big puppy eyes!
Friendliness (People): B
Friendliness (Dogs): B
She loves to play with other dogs but her bark doesn’t sound like it! She’s a very LOUD player but her other dog friends know this.
Special Talents: C
She’s wonderful with “leave it” which is a must when you’re constantly dropping non-dog friendly items on the floor, however, she almost never comes when called. I like to blame this on the beagle side of her not my poor training.
Begging for Food: B
Well, I rarely give in but my husband is a different story. Addie does a great job during dinner and sits on a rug in another room until we’re done eating. She really begs for snacks though!
Other important information:
Addie’s face is so expressive it’s as if you can read her mind. She gets pouty if she wants to go out but we won’t let her. When I pack my bags for a work trip she gets sad and whines so I won’t leave. And, there’s nothing like an Addie welcome when you get home, whether you’ve been away for three days or ten minutes!
Sometimes Addie just needs a snuggle and she curls up on my lap. She’s definitely a sweet puppy.
Overall Grade: B
