Odie is about 10 years old, but it's a young 10- he's still very active. He is about 10 lbs. He would be OK as your one and only or with other dog/s. He was not happy at all at the shelter and his fear demonstrated itself as aggression. Once at home, he became a love bug immediately. He's territorial about his bed- in his new home he should have an area that he could call his and feel secure in- maybe a crate. As is a doxie trait, he thinks he is a giant and doesn't hesitate to act BIG with dogs many times his size. He can be nervous at first, but is affectionate with his people (as long as you don't try to take his bone!). We have found over the years that the doxies and mixes thereof either love their people more than other breeds - or demonstrate it more.....yummy~ This little cutie loves to be held and petted. Since he's so small and not yappy, he should be ok for an apartment. He's been looking for a home for over five years- come and give him a chance!

For further info on the adoption process, please visit our home page and check out the "Adopt a Dog" section where very thorough instructions await. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, micorchipped, and fully vaccinated before adoption; they have been wormed, bathed, socialized, walked daily and much loved; each adoptee leaves with a leash, collar, and all medical records.
The beauty of coming to our Apple Valley sanctuary is that you can see all 90+ dogs! No more weekend mobiles—only special events. Maybe if there are enuff appointments, we could see you in El Monte or Orange County or nearby. Email your application and ask for more details!
Beagles & Buddies must find ways to raise money so we can continue saving dogs. Your tax-deductible donation keeps our rescue kennel operating!
If you have a question about adopting, giving up a dog, boarding, or volunteering, pls visit the appropriate tabs on our home page.
