Thank's you guys. This guy is a little different than the others that we've raised from a pup. Nobody knows any background other than a car was seen dropping the dog on the side of the road and the car's plate or the dog couldn't be snagged. Can you imagine someone just dumping a dog on the side of the road? I have my own thoughts on what should happen to people like that. Karma will handle them. He must have been on the run for a while and his Heartworm Situation is critical. Damn shame. Maybe the medicine is making him go nuts.

There is no way this guy gets the run of the house like every other dog I've ever had. He's got an evil smirk on his face. It's crate a Go-Go for him.

My Vet suggested cheesies as a treat for "go pee".
I never used cheesies, but apparently dogs love them.

The rescue we have now was given up at 1 1/2 years old and ended up at Max's Pet Connection.
We've had Baxter for over a year, and he is finally starting to feel secure again.
A sensitive dog can take a long time to get over being abandoned.
Luca obviously had owners that didn't care about him at all.
I'm very happy that you are fostering him. I hope it works out for you to adopt him.

We did the routine of leaving for short times and extending gradually. Also we leave the radio on and that ended the anxiety issues.

He needs long walks several times per day. I have trained many pups and dogs, and I find exercise is the most important part of training. Most people do not want to hear that but it is true. This takes commitment and your time. I would crate him while inside. He is not housebroke if he has "accidents". If your walk him an hour for three times a day and crate him while inside, with a short walk just before bedtime, it should take 2 weeks till he is trained. Most people will cheat on the schedule because they feel sorry for the dog and those dogs are the ones that are turned back in to the shelter, or destroy the house- maybe not for good but makes for much clean up for many months. Your choice, but if you stay strong he should be good and trained in 2 weeks.

Rescue Remedy by Bach from Amazon. Three squirts on the tongue or gums and our rescued lab would chill out.

You say it is a beagle and it was abandoned.
As a breed, beagles have issues with separation. They also howl and they will run away if given an opportunity. They need a lot of exercise. They are smart, they can be trained and can be great pets.

As to separation anxiety, that might be the reason why a previous owner abandoned the dog.
