Handsome, affectionate, well-behaved and rocking perfect scores on his behavior evaluation…is Beacker a dog or a dream come true?!! Really he’s whatever you want him to be; soft and snuggly, playful and full of fun, keen to make new friends and so thrilled by it all he actually suffered a case of ‘happy tail’ from too much indoor wagging. Yet even a boo-boo bandage can’t distract from his gorgeousness, it only adds an adorable quirk and touching vulnerability to those picture-perfect good looks. Beacker walks well on leash, seems very house trained, happily greets other dogs (though he can be a bit shy in group play) and of course he already knows how to come, sit and take treats with a gentle mouth. An open-hearted guy who simply loves everyone and everything he sees, there was a visiting group of volunteers waiting in the yard and Beacker immediately made a beeline to their side for petting and praise. If you’re looking for a pet you can take anywhere and trust to get along with anyone then this is your boy. I can’t imagine a dog this wonderful will be with us long so put on your sneakers and run, don’t walk, to our Manhattan Care Center–the amazing Beacker awaits!
Another volunteer writes: Gorgeous, sultry bedroom eyes………it’s impossible to look at Beacker and not want to cuddle with him…and, he’s a happy boy when you offer him your lap! So quiet in his kennel, he gets up easily ready for a walk to go potty and then some off leash play and snuggle time. He loves playing with toys and a ball, amusing himself as he tosses the toy around pouncing cutely after it. Sitting with me as I took some notes, Beacker appreciates the quiet time as well, happy to simply be close to his person, showing off his sit, taking his reward treat gently. He poses for photos like a super model taking this modeling thing very seriously. He’s an awesome dog and although he can sometimes get a bit mouthy in play, he’s smart, happy and with a bit of positive reinforcement training will learn what’s appropriate.
The Foster Writes: This pup is the total package! He’s gentle, silly, super charming and remarkably composed for such a young dog. He’s a velvety soft cuddle bunny and snores like a giant monster. He loves people with great intensity and that feeling seems universally mutual.
Beacker deserves, and will be best appreciated by, an owner with some dog experience who will be able to support a smart adolescent dog. It is an important time in his life to give him stability and exercise, and to support his exceptionally beautiful temperament with positive reinforcement training.
He is a playful pup, but not hyper or high strung. Beacker has been a couch potato indoors who just wants to be cuddled up near his person and given the occasional chew toy, but he is active outside and enjoys walks and playing in a yard.
To know Beaker is to love him. He’s very affectionate but not at all needy. He has a special lovability about him that people gravitate to. Beacker is a very very good boy and has been a pleasure to get to know.
Beaker is housebroken and wonderful without any behavioral issues that I’ve seen. He is inexperienced on leash and maybe feels a little vulnerable in strange environments. When startled by a loud noise, he had a habit of biting the leash which is the only training need I’ve found him to have. He received professional training walks and impressed everyone with his immediate improvement. His owner will likely want to continue that work so he can improve his confidence outside/on leash. He does walk beautifully on leash without pulling.
He is highly treat motivated and eager to please. He seems to enjoy quiet peaceful environments best.
