Posted Breed: Beagle (medium coat). See Blazer's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Blazer! Blazer is a 9 year old tri color male beagle. Blazer comes to us from a local animal shelter after being an unfortunate victim of a hoarding case here in Jacksonville. Despite the neglect of attention and care, Blazer is in pretty good shape for his age. Blazer has had a full work up at our vet. His bloodwork and exam came back with excellent results for his age. He does have some arthrtis in his back but thats to be expected at his age. Blazer also has a slight cherry eye but it does not need to removed and does not cause him any issues. Blazer would do best with a retired couple or person. Although Blazer loves to take walks and run around in the yard, he really likes to live a laid back life in the house. Lots of lap, bed and couch time. Blazer is highly trainable and food motivated. Because of Blazers's age and arthritis in his back, he would prefer without children. Blazer gets along with dogs who are as laid back as he is. He likes his space too so a only dog home would suit him fine as well. Blazer is up to date on all vaccines.Blazer is crate and house trained. Blazer is neutered. Blazer is micro chipped.

More About Beagle Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.
