Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). NAME: Dave BREED: Beagle APPROXIMATE AGE: 5 years WEIGHT: 20lbs ADOPTION FEE: $100 Dave came to us from a crowded shelter after being found as a stray. He is completely blind; his condition is called SARDS (sudden acquired retinal degeneration), which is not painful and does not affect other areas of his overall health. Dave is a brave boy who is already adjusting well to life in his foster home. He has a lot of energy and loves to explore inside and out. He is great with other dogs and after a brief period of barking in the general direction of the cats he encountered, he is now comfortable with them too. Dave loves attention from everyone he meets; despite being blind he is very confident and is friendly with all people. He even likes to rough-house and wrestles with his foster mom. All Dave needs to be happy and feel safe is a little time to adjust and patience while he navigates his surroundings. He is house and crate trained, walks well on a leash, rides well in the car, and is a quiet boy especially considering his breed. This little fellow is going to make a sweet and fun addition to his new family!

More About Beagle Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

    • American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Seven Valleys, PA



      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seven Valleys, PA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). It takes something special for a dog to remain sweet, loving, and good-natured when dealt one bad hand after another. Found as a stray, Bogart was underweight, infested with fleas and heartworms, and missing much of his hair. He was taken to the shelter where he remained without interest from September until January. There, he was neutered, vaccinated, and treated for his parasites- perhaps his first veterinary procedures ever. There, he showed everyone that he had forgiven the heartless humans who abandoned him. And there, he became a shelter favorite whose wonderful personality saved him from euthanasia time and again. Bogart truly is something special, but his age, breed, medical conditions, and length of stay at the shelter worked against the efforts of his friends, and he was finally out of time. Love and dedication brought him to Good Old Tails all the way from North Carolina, where he is finally safe. ​ If you're looking for a boring old couch potato, you're going to have to keep searching! Bogart has a lot of energy and strength. His exercise needs to be restricted until his heartworm treatments are complete (he can be adopted at any time during this treatment to someone willing to give him his pills, which are provided by GOT) but once he's healthy again he's going to need an active family to keep him happy. He loves toys, belly rubs, and sniffing around outside. He's also learning about couches and fluffy beds and he loves them too! ​ Bogart tested well with other dogs at the shelter, but we recommend that he goes to a home without a dominant dog. He also passed the no-contact cat test, but hasn't met a cat in "real life" yet. This guy is brand new to our rescue so please stay tuned for updates! We love him already and are hoping to get him into his forever home quickly so that he can start to live the life he deserves!

    • Beagle-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Seven Valleys, PA



      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seven Valleys, PA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Bunny is a healthy, small (23 lbs) 5-10 years old female Beagle mix. She is a quiet, gentle, playful girl and very friendly towards people and other dogs. She is well crate trained and quickly settles in for a nap. She would be a great dog for most homes, but like most Beagles she is very stubborn and energetic and will require lots of attention and exercise. Her gentle, submissive nature should make her well-suited to homes with small children and/or multiple dogs. Her attitude towards cats or other house pets is unknown. ***Bunny is heartworm positive. She will be available for adoption once she is healthy, so please fill out an application if you are interested in adopting her. If you are unable to adopt at this time, please consider making a donation toward her medical expenses.***
