Adopt Parker: Purrs N’ Pups Animal Rescue – Rockaway, NJ

Parker is an amazingly cute and friendly 1 year old beagle/pointer mix. He howls distinctively like a beagle and points when he catches a scent. He is almost pure white with a few black/brown spots and ‘eyeliner’ (see pictures). He is nearly full grown and weighs about 40 lbs and is in perfect health. Parker is fully trained in recall and basic commands such as sit, stay, up, down, drop it, and leave it and readily complies without hesitation. He is also crate trained and fully housebroken. He has huge amounts of energy and can run nonstop for long periods of time, making him an excellent running companion. He’s a little awkward on a leash because, as a hound, he can’t help but follow his nose. However, this is easily improved with a little patience and training. Parker loves children and currently lives with a 5 and 4 year old. He is infinitely patient with children and loves to play with and take care of groups of young neighborhood kids. He can be timid with new dogs but, he warms up very quickly and loves to play. He would even enjoy living with a dog or two who can show him the ropes. Parker has lived with a cat, but loves to chase them. Although Parker loves to cuddle, he doesn’t expect to be allowed on furniture, although he would love to if you let him. Overall, Parker is pretty much the perfect dog and a rare combination of intelligence, beauty, tenderness, and willingness do please his people.
