We adopted "Chance" in 2001. He was terrified of everything and everyone, having lived in numerous.
The home before us couldn't get him to come out from under the bed. He is now Nigel and very happy. Although still timid around men, he plays well with the other 4 beagles and has adopted Daisy as his girlfriend. He has no problem slepping under the covers in the human bed and often hogs the pillows.
