Introducing Nicky! He is one of the handsomest beagles his foster mom has ever seen. He looks like he is wearing permanent eyeliner. He is about 4 years old and weighs about 40 pounds. Nicky has had some sort of abuse in his past and after much work and love his foster mom says he has come a million miles. Now he will come up to you to be petted and loved on once he knows he can trust you. Nicky is used to sleeping in a crate and he does great in not messing up while in the crate.   But for some reason he is not totally housebroken when loose in the house so you have to watch for his signals. However, he is smart and food as a reward is very attractive to him. His foster family has been working with him to bring him out of his shell and we know there are people or families out there that understand a dog with some fears because of their past.  He is coming a long way and we know there are experienced dog owners out there that will know how to continue to work on him and to further his journey. He is really a little goofball and will keep you laughing for years. He would be best with children 10 and older as he doesn't like to be startled.  He could be a companion dog with another already in the family.  But he doesn’t love living with lots of other dogs right now so we would suggest a home with one or two other dogs tops….or no other dogs if fine.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or

About Critter Companion Rescue- VA

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Companion Rescue give them a chance to have a life?
