“Sebastian,” a beagle/rat terrier mix puppy, is the newest addition to the household of Gary Palmer, assistant vice president of community affairs at Replacements, Ltd. “When my coworker, Margaret Elliot, brought Sebastian to work looking for a home for him, I immediately fell in love with him,” Gary said.
Although he is only five months old, Sebastian is very smart and learns rapidly. “I’ve had him for just one week, but he has already learned to sleep through the night without having to be taken out,” Gary said. Sebastian loves to play in Gary’s fenced backyard, and already knows how to fetch a ball. “When home, he loves it when my housemate’s dog, Aresia, will play with him,” Gary said. According to Gary, Sebastian also loves squeak toys – “He can make a lot of racket with them!” Gary said.
Sebastian and Gary’s cat, “Frosty,” are still learning how to get along. “While they haven’t become best friends, they do both sleep in the bed with me, one on each side,” Gary said, and added, “Sebastian snores!”
Sebastian has already made lots of human friends at Replacements and everyone who meets him immediately falls in love with him – Gary has no problem finding people to take care of him when he’s in meetings! When asked about Replacements’ pet-friendly policy, Gary said, “Bringing Sebastian to work has been great for me – it forces me to take breaks to take him out for his walk!”
