Facts about Banjo

  • Breed: Beagle
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: LW
Banjo will be 2 years old in a couple months, but is just now learning the art of being a member of a pack. He was an only dog since he was 6 weeks old, so missed out on all those lessons that litter mates teach each other! He is a cute guy who is a standard 15 inches and weighs a slender 26 pounds.

It is hard for one so young to learn house manners when everyone works and you are alone all day in a crate. Banjo was still having accidents when he arrived as an owner surrender a couple weeks ago. The freedom of a dog door, someone to take you out at appropriate times, positive praise and observing his foster siblings corrected the problem in a couple days. He has not gotten into anything that did not belong to the pack. Someone is home most of the time in his foster home so he has been crated only at meal times.

Playtime is from the moment he wakes up until the lights go off at night. He loves to wrestle and to play chase. He has been seen using that scoop nose of his to try to get someone off the dog bed and into a game again. He is the brat of the pack! He barks when they are playing without him, barks to get someone play tug and barks the entire time he is playing chase! The boy is having FUN for the first time in his life! Given time and a canine companion in his forever home and Banjo will settle down to be a wonderful family dog.

Banjo does have a sweet nature and will give great kisses when he is taking a break for some human attention. He was doing the puppy biting of hands at first but that has stopped completely. He loves to snuggle up next to you on the bed for some TV watching in the evenings, now that he has learned that TV and wrestling do not go together! If you have an active family and lots of time and love to give, please come and visit Banjo!

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteers in the Houston, TX area who foster rescued beagles in our own private homes. We have no shelter facility. The first step in our adoption process is for interested parties to complete the on-line adoption application found on our website, www.HoustonBeagleRescue.org, and then we will contact you regarding meeting the dogs.

We also periodically hold special activities and attend Houston-area adoption events which will be listed on our "events" section of our website. Our quarterly newsletter is published on our website at www.HoustonBeagleRescue.org
