Ricky's Story...
Age: 12 years


Hi, I’m Ricky and don’t let my white face fool you! I may be 13 on paper but I’ve got a lot of love to give yet. I found myself all alone in the shelter after my family’s situation changed and they could no longer keep me. I still don’t understand what happened because I am a gentle, easy-going mellow fellow and all I want is someone to love me back. My one goal in life is to be with or near my people! I follow foster mom around the house and lie on the bathroom rug while she gets ready every morning. When she’s on the computer, I park myself on the nearest floor mat where I can see her at all times. I don’t ask for much, don’t demand attention or petting, but I do enjoy it when you have a moment. A funny quirk - I prefer flat mats to fluffy dog beds, but I will admit to preferring to sleep on the bed with you if possible. I understand if you have to leave for work every day and am reliable loose in the house while you’re gone. Although I was previously an only dog, I enjoy being around other dogs and get along great with my foster dog siblings. There are no cats here but my notes say I didn’t show any interest in them previously and it makes sense because I don’t seem to care about squirrels or other critters in the yard. I am great on a leash, easy to walk and absolutely a dream in the car, just sitting nicely watching the world go by. I am healthy for a senior and not on any medications. My hearing isn’t perfect any more but I am always alert and don’t miss a beat. Oh, by the way, I’m pretty proud of my surprisingly soft fur. Trust me – pet me once and you won’t want to stop, I’m that soft! I’ve been very quiet, except a couple of times when foster mom started to play with me and I pounced and barked at her to keep her going, like I was a pup! Won’t you give me another chance for a fur-ever home? I promise to make you fall in love with me quickly, I’m really good at that!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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