Lamont is a little beagle that I adopted in July 2019 from the Potsdam Humane Society in northern New York. I found him through an ad on After mourning Gordon, my previous beagle who died a few months earlier at 15, I was looking at beagles within 100 km of Ottawa and fell in love with his photo. He's a happy guy, but was not without his problems. I didn't have a valid passport and emailed a request for information and started the process to obtain a passport. The shelter advised me that he was a lovable guy, with some behaviour problems that led to him to be rehomed multiple times and returned. According to the records that the shelter sent me, it seems like he spent more than half his life up to when I got him in and out of the shelter. The first thing that I did was sign him up for training at PetSmart and he went through three courses over six months with two different trainers. He still has seperation anxiety; he still has a few accidents in the house and he still tries to steal food from the fridge, but he is doing well. He makes me crazy at times, but I'm glad that he's in my life. He's not Gordon, just different.
