Denzel's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Denzel's Story...
Denzel has arrived at CBR-East! He was retired from biomedical research studies in which he was infrequently used for non-toxic drug testing. This is very common, and we have adopted out many dogs who have been used in this way and gone on to wonderful retirements as loving pets! There are no expected side effects to this type of testing.

Denzel is absolutely adorable, and is already fascinated with balls and toys in general. He is a playful beagle who seems to love everyone. He will make a wonderful addition to a new family, especially if there is another dog around for him to play with! He is cratetrained, and continues to work on his housetraining. He loves to snuggle with someone,and will thrive in a home where he can get a lot of attention. He's just a wonderful beagle looking for a great forever family with whom he can share his retirement!

He has no history of seizures, and has been fine since it occurred. We tested abd and will re-test his blood chemistries to see what may be going on. We believe this was an isolated incident due to a possible infection he was fighting off, but we cannot say for sure at this time. We will post more when we know more!Update 2: Denzel's repeat bloodwork came back FINE!! YAY! We have reason to believe that Denzel was simply fighting off an infection and the chemical imbalance in his body caused his seizure. He is doing amazing, and really just needs a forever home.Update:**Denzel has now had 3 seizures while in foster care, so we are beginning treatment (Phenobarbital) for a seizure disorder. This is an inexpensive treatment ($10/month) which should be able to decrease Denzel's seizures. Epilepsy is extremely common in beagles, so Denzel is not an unusual case. With medication, seizures are usually decreased to few and far between. He still needs a wonderful, loving home, and deserves a chance with a great family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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