Minnie, fun-loving!'s Story...
Minnie is a fun-loving, active beagle girl who is 5 years old, 14" tall, and weighs 25 lbs.

She was turned in to a shelter by her family because they "had too many dogs." SIGH. She was quite overweight at 35 lbs and was put on a diet by her foster family, so that she is now a svelte 25 lbs! Her foster dad took one look at her when she first arrived at the home, and decided to call her "Mini-Chunk." Even though she is no longer a chunk, the name was cute (and so is she) so it has stuck with her!

Mini-Chunk is funny, silly, happy, energetic, and yes, a bit ornery at times like most beagles can be! She loves to try to snatch food from unsuspecting hands, so it would be best if she goes to a home without very young children. She does adore the grandchildren (ages 7, 10 and 12) who come to visit the foster home from time to time, and loves attention from them. In fact, she is very confident and loves everyone she meets! She will sit on a lap for awhile, but she has a lot to accomplish in a day so she can't sit for long.

Her favorite things are walks on leash, rides in the car, treats and attention. She is good with the other 2 beagles in the household but she would not mind being an "only" dog as long as she has her favorite things. Minnie is house-trained, crate-trained, leash-trained and doggie door-trained. She sits for treats and is not much of a barker except when she welcomes the family as they come home (and she does definitely give a vocal greeting at that time!). She behaves well in the house when left alone and does not get into things that don't belong to her.

If you are interested in meeting Minnie or any of our other adoptable beagles, the first step in the process is to go to our website and follow the instructions on filling out an application to adopt, then someone will contact you with the details.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Minnie, fun-loving!, a Houston Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle for sale in Houston, or seeking a Beagle dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Beagle breeders who help with Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
