Smiling Sam's Story...
Name: Smiling Sam
Breed: Beagle
Age: Adult
Gender: Male

Smiling Sam is an adult male Beagle who was found in a ditch with a badly mangled broken leg, likely hit by a car when he was a stray. The finder thought he was snarling at her, but nope, Smiling Sam peels his lips back and gives everyone he sees a big Beagle grin, even in crazy pain. This little boy is all heart, and such a quiet, gentle dog. Likely when he gets to MN he needs his broken back leg amputated, right now it is splinted but not set, and so we will evaluate and take care of his leg when he arrives. We know this means more vet bills when we just got done begging for donations, but looking at this face and knowing his euthanasia date was near because of an over crowded shelter, we couldn't say no.

Requirements: No special requirements

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Smiling Sam, a Minneapolis Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Beagle dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
