Tessa - exercise pal's Story...
Hi! My name is now Tessa and I am only around 1 year old. I am a healthy, happy and energetic beagle mix seeking an active forever home. I love to run and play chase in the backyard with my foster siblings (I’m really fast) so a home with another dog and fenced yard would be ideal. Though I weigh 32 pounds, all my exercise keeps me looking slender on my 16 inch frame. I could be the exercise partner for you or for your dog!

My current foster mom isn't sure how I will be around children, but with my gentle spirit and kind nature, she is thinking I would love a family with kids to run me ragged. I love playing with my toys especially the chew type (well I am still a bit of a pup), but I haven't gotten into anything not meant for me to play with. I share my toys well with others. Did I mention, I love to wrestle with my sibling pups, but for downtime I love watching out the window at all those passing by. I let them know I'm here, and for those with pups -- loudly at times. Oh and don't get me started on chasing squirrels! I settled in to my new surroundings pretty easily, needing only a few days to get used to it.

If I were a student, I'm pretty sure I would get A's because I learn fast. I got the doggie door down in just a day and since then no accidents in the house. I'm also doing well in the crate while mom is away from the house. Though when I hear her car drive in, I'm so excited I can't contain my tail. When she lets me out, I'll admit I'm just so happy to see her I'm jumping all over her to greet her (we are working on me keeping paws on the ground- but I'm a work in progress). When she is home, I have the run of the house with my siblings and I do really well. I sleep in a doggie bed in the bedroom, but admit to sneaking up on the bed whenever I can where I lie down and sleep through the night. I can walk on a leash, but often get excited and pull ahead so could probably benefit from a bit more training. I love to go for car rides and am really hoping my next trip will be with you to my forever home.

Please fill out an application to adopt on our website at, and ask to meet me. I will make you very happy that you picked me to be the newest member of your pack! Because I am a mix, my adoption fee is reduced to $150.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tessa - exercise pal, 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.
