|Good on leash|
Hi! My name is Mars and I am a handsome beagle mixed puppy looking for a loving home of my very own. I am a happy, playful pup with a condition called megaesophagus (Mega-E). This might sound a little strange, but it just means that I need to eat standing up (either upright on a human’s lap, in a front carrier or in this thing called a Bailey Chair) and then I need to rest upright for about 20 minutes after I have finished my meal. My esophagus doesn’t work just right and eating upright helps my food move properly into my tummy. After I finish eating, (like a snapping turtle according to my foster mom) my paw-rents shower me with snuggles and I just LOVE this time of the day! Once I am released from the cuddles it’s play time! I love to goof around with all the doggies in my foster home – the more dogs the better. I run, play and get into mischief just like any other puppy. When I get thirsty, I have to be careful not to gulp my water; my fosters give me ice chips to help keep me hydrated and happy. I play hard and sleep hard too. At night I sleep with a snazzy blow-up ring around my neck to keep my head elevated. It might look a little funny, but it keeps me from getting sick during the night. If you think I might be the pup for you–my foster dad would love to talk to you about just how manageable my condition is.
