Facts about Sonny

  • Breed: Beagle

Are you looking for a gentle, laid-back companion for relaxed walks and couch time? Sonny (who answers to Toby) would be delighted to help you with that. He’s got 14 years of experience providing companionship, company, and quality time.
Sonny loves to give and receive attention! Want to rub his head and scratch his belly while you hangout? You got it. Want some company while you do housework? He’ll be right there. When he’s had enough, Sonny likes to settle down on a soft bed (or your bed, or the couch, or a comforter on the get the picture) and take a nap. Because he enjoys attention Sonny would be happiest in a home with other dogs or with humans who are home quite a bit. He’s generally a quiet guy, but he will sing the song of his people (a fine clear bay) when you come home.
Sonny shares his foster home with a 10-year-old female beagle and four cats. He plays nicely and shares toys, beds, etc. with the resident beagle, and tends to follow her lead with regard to house manners. He’s respectful of the cats, if occasionally curious, and will back off if someone doesn’t want to be sniffed or otherwise investigated. He's happiest hanging out in the yard (bonus points if there's a sunbeam and some foliage for him to lie in) or on the couch near the other beagle or one of his people.
Sonny is not at all destructive (did we mention that he appreciates a good nap?) and he has the run of the house. Sonny is housebroken, but he needs to go out several times a day. For this reason, he would do best in a home where someone is around most of the day, or at doggy daycare, or with a daily visit from a dog walker. He uses a pee pad when he's crated.
Sonny has some discomfort in his hips, but with appropriate medication (which he takes in his food without any fuss) he is comfortable and enthusiastic about moving around. He has no trouble with stairs, climbing in and out of garden beds, or hopping onto the couch when invited.

About Midwest Beagle Rescue, Education and Welfare - Western PA

About Our Rescue Group...

Midwest Beagle Rescue, Education and Welfare, Inc is a 501(c)3 non profit, all-volunteer organization located in the Midwest, funded by donations and dedicated to rescuing beagles from high-kill shelters. Our foster homes provide loving temporary care until we are able to find them well matched, carefully screened forever homes. By working with local veterinarians, trainers, and boarding facilities we are able to give proper medical care to the beagles in our program. We also serve as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition. We adopt beagles to families within Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, western Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and have also placed beagles into loving homes in Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri.
