Beckett is sitting in boarding waiting for a foster home. Beckett is a great dog with so much potential. He is a diamond in the rough. His good qualities - besides his good looks, that is:

He is smart and learns quickly.
He loves to cuddle.
He is good with other dogs and loves to play.
He is housetrained and crate trained.

As much as it pains us to admit it, Beckett does have a few flaws:

He is really crazy about food and can be a bit possessive of food and things associated with food (yes, believe it - like the dishwasher)
He doesn't like strangers, especially men poking him (ok, how does?)
He thinks cats are appetivers (sure, not everyone thinks this is a bad thing but we do)
He occasionally mistakes a small yappy dog for a cat. (see above).

With the right attitude, a little work and help from a professional trainer, Beckett can be helped to overcome his possessive guarding ways. The problem is that he can't start working with a trainer (provided by Homeward Trails) until he is placed in a foster home.

Please consider helping this good dog become a great dog. Please consider fostering Beckett.

If you can help or know someone who may, please contact

Beckett Is Waiting Still

Beckett is such a super sweet boy. He's been in boarding, awaiting a foster or adopter. He is great with kids and good with other dogs (except maybe super small ones). He pretty much is friend to everyone except those pesty cats.
Please consider fostering or adopting him. Please help Beckett find his forever home by sharing his story. Thank you!

"Driving Mr. Beckett"

Beckett loves riding in the car.
When Beckett first joined us he would look out the back window and watch it all go by. But lately he has taken to riding shotgun in the front seat on the floor. First we think he caught a scent of a treat on the floor.. maybe. But since then he kind of likes hanging out here. It gives him a front row seat to check out the humans.
It is kind of funny... no bucket seats for Beckett.
He might have gotten a little jostled around before and finds this a bit safer with our driving.

"Beckett and the Finer things in Life"

Beckett has discovered the finer things in life for a dog. The dog bed!! Oh he thinks it is sooooo great. He likes to bring his toy there, hang out, or just roll around for a back scratch. It is fuzzy and ohhhh so comfy.
We don't think Beckett had a bed before coming to the Burbs. He watched his foster friends hang out in it for about a week, and finally got the hang of it.
Boy is it nice and comfy. He hopes he will have one at his new home soon.
He also is doing really well on his potty training.
He figured out if he "pottys outside" he gets a tasty treat. Sometimes we think he is faking it just to get an extra kibble or 2. Cute Guy Beckett.
