Cricket's Info...

I am purebred, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Cricket's Story...
Cricket is the sweetest little beagle girl, weighing 20 lbs, on a petite frame. The vets have guessed her age at approximately 5 years. She has the somewhat rare beagle coloring called "blue ticking," so-named because of the cute blue-black freckles that are on the areas which are normally plain white on a tri-colored beagle.

This little beagle was found wandering as a stray in a rural area north of Houston, and was taken to a county shelter. No one came to claim her, which was not surprising since she had apparently been very neglected in her past. At the shelter she was curled up in a little ball and looked as if she had given up, but when the beagle rescue volunteer came to rescue her, Cricket diverted from her course on the way out, to go over and give a kiss to a maintenance worker who was lying on the floor fixing a fountain! How cute was that?!

Beagle Rescue has been taking care of Cricket's medical needs and getting her all fixed up for adoption. While she was at 2 different vet clinics on separate occasions, the staff at both clinics remarked on what a well-behaved patient she was! When she goes to the Petsmart with her foster mom, people there also notice was a good dog she is! At home, she likes to curl up on a favorite chair or dog bed near to the humans. She rarely barks, and never chews up anything nor has any potty accidents! She is trained to use a doggie door, and also likes to go out on a leash to go potty. As is typical with most beagles, Cricket is always looking for an opportunity to slip out the front door, and because she is so tiny, she is pretty good at seizing the moment if it is presented! Her adopters will have to be very diligent at keeping her from dashing out.

Cricket's favorite things are leash walks, car rides, treats, and soft places for napping. She gets along well with the other beagles in the house, but does not play with other dogs. She seems to have known children in the past, because when the foster mom's grandchildren come to visit, Cricket is right in the middle of the group, wanting attention. However, because she is a quiet dog, her foster mom would not recommend her for a family with young, noisy children. If you are looking for a calm companion, Cricket is your girl!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cricket, 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.
