Gracie the Beagle's Story...
Is anyone able to open their home for a senior female Beagle....she just needs a place to call home for whatever little time she may have left!! With her age and medical conditions, there is no adoption fee for this sweetie....just a loving home to let her peacefully live out the remainder of her golden years is all this girl needs. ...If you are willing to open up your home for Gracie, please contact Jean Lazzaro at 9-dogs@sbcglobal.net or call 219-678-6123.

Gracie is a senior girl who has a long list of medical ailments. She has been diagnosed as high-positive for heartworm, she has fluid in her lungs, she has a lump on one of her breasts, she has an ulceration on one of her eyes, she has a hernia and has a mouth full of bad teeth :(

Sadly, because she is an older girl of at least 10 years old and is not a healthy dog, the 2 veternarians that Jean has taken her to see do not think that she would survive a surgery for anyone of her ailments. Both of the doctors recommended not pursuing any of the expensive surgeries that may end her life. They don't believe that she is suffering and suggested giving her a monthly heartworm preventative to try to help with the heartworm that she already has in lieu of putting her through a risky heartworm treatment that she would probably not survive. They also put her on a diuretic which they hope will help lessen the fluid in her lungs and allow her to breathe a little easier.

Gracie is such an extremely sweet and well-behaved little lady. She is very friendly with everyone that she meets and has plenty of affection for everyone. She is very mild mannered and spends most of her time climbing in her crate to take a nap. She is a very petite girl and only weighs about 20 pounds. She also does extremely well with other dogs and is even a very good girl with cats. She has received all of her necessary vaccinations as well.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gracie the Beagle, 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.
