Clarkson's Story...
Hi, I am a sweet 27 lb beagle which is a perfect weight for me. I love to give kisses and am very well behaved. I am housebroken and get along well with my foster brother and sister as well as the two kitties that live with us.

I have been in my foster home since early September after being rescued from a shelter, so my foster mom knows me pretty well by now. I was a stray but seem to be used to living in a home since I settled in quickly. I am crateable, but would rather be out in the house. I was trustworthy enough to let me do this after the first week or so of getting used to my new home. I do enjoy sleeping in my crate at night and usually choose that over being in the bed with the people! But I have slept at the end of the bed a couple of times, so I don't take up much room!

I love to snuggle on the couch while you are relaxing, and I love hanging out with you in the yard or going on a ride to the pet store! I even tried one of their big bathtubs to get a bath and tolerated it like an expert.

I was Heartworm positive, but I handled the treatment really well. I had to spend a couple months with limited activity because of the heartworm treatment, so anytime I got to go for a walk was a huge excitement. But I have a low to medium energy level so relaxing is second nature to me and I will not be bouncing off the walls.

I have a flexible personality so could do well in many types of homes. I can see myself in a few different types of homes!! Maybe by myself, or with a couple or maybe with a family with children - older than 5-6 since I am a bit of a wiggler. I am VERY gentle, I don't jump around, but because I want to be near you a lot, I sometimes don't realize I am bumping into things like your legs (so I don't want to knock anyone down).

I need a lot of attention, so although I get along super well with my foster brother and sister, I might be fine as an only dog as long as I am getting lots of walks and outings. For example, when foster mom is petting the other beagles, I like to barge my face into the group and have it be "all about me". I am a good listener and know how to stay away from things with a simple gruff "NO!", but when I am having an "all about me" moment, it takes a little more to have me understand. (Training classes would be great - I am really smart and would do well knowing more than sit, no and come!!)

Please consider adding me to your family because I have so much love to give, and I am really cute, too! Some of the silly things I do: sock fetish - loose or in a pair (clean or dirty!), I like to steal them and run away to put them somewhere else! I don't chew on them, I just like taking them! Sometimes I chase my tail a little, and other times I do some zoomies in the yard. Another funny thing I do, is when I play like a cat, where I pick up a cow hoof or deer antler and fling it around and retrieve it before settling down to chew on it. And yes, I also play fetch!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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