Chesapeake's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Chesapeake's Story...
This aptly named senior fellow was found paddling in the bay. How would an old dog find himself alone and in deep water, you ask? He could have been on a rescue mission, out to save his owner from drowning. He might have gotten an untimely discharge from the Navy before his ship actually made it back to port. Our guess is that his owner tossed him overboard to solve the problem of an aging dog who no longer hunts, is no longer "beautiful," or, perhaps, no longer matches the draperies.

A very kind boater fished him out of the water and took him back to the marina where Chessie endured a heck of a stormy night out on his own. The boater came back the next day to find Chessie hungry, wet and frightened and then, wisely, took him to the animal shelter where he eventually came to Beagle Rescue.

As far as personality goes, he's a beagle! Except for needing some meds for arthritis and allergies, he's a low maintenance-type guy. Friendly, loving, willing to eat. He's missed a few meals along the way and he's doing his level best to make up for lost time.

He is well behaved, and someone somewhere has crate trained him. It would be lovely if Chessie could find a home where he will be loved and cared for for the rest of his life.

Adoptive Status: Will be neutered, UTD on shots, Heartworm Negative and micro-chipped within two weeks after the posted date.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Just needs love and a human to love him.

Owner Aptitude Level: Beginner.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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