Beckett Steele: Notes on a foster dog

Beckett is a timid hound we pulled from Newport Animal Control. He’s been there since April. He was quite frightened by everything. Lee, a member of the N.A.C. staff worked diligently with Beckett to help him get over his fears. I will build upon Lee’s work and get Beckett trained and ready to be adopted.

Known Issues & Progress

Other than never having been trained in good behavior, Beckett doesn’t seem to have any major issues. He’s timid around strangers, but open and loving (even devoted) when he gets to know you just a little. I’m working on that training and socialization. Commands he knows:

  • Come
  • In Your Room

Beckett is definitely a hound dog! (vid)

Becket was neutered today. He is a VERY unhappy boy!

Beckett is one pitiful fellow.
