Duke's Story...
Meet Duke. Duke just turned 5 and he celebrated his birthday by settling in to his retirement and learning about life outside of a laboratory.

Duke is a sweet, affectionate boy who just wants to be loved. He’s adapting well to life in a home (and having a lap to curl up in).

He keeps his crate clean and dry both during the day while his foster family is at work and at night.

Duke LOVES sitting out in the yard "people-watching" through the fence. If anybody approaches he gets very animated and will stand up on the fence "asking" to be pet or any attention.

The neighbor had a children’s party one day and Duke had the best time running up and down the fence keeping up with the kids. At one point their ball came over the fence and Duke chased it and batted it around quite happily until it was retrieved and returned to the kids.

Duke is still learning what is and isn’t "OK" to chew, so keeping an eye on him, especially when he gets too quiet is a good idea. Substituting an "approved" object for the incorrect one has been effective.

A full flight of stairs is still a challenge for him, but he handles the 4 steps from the back porch to the yard with no problem.

So far Duke has met no strangers, simple new friends – men, women, children, cats, other dogs…

Housetraining is coming along well as long as he gets outside as soon as he’s loose from his crate we’ve had no accidents, but he would rather be with a person than go outside so it is still necessary to walk him to the door.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke, 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.
