Dexter's Info...

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

Dexter's Story...
Dexter was one of four beagles pulled from a kill shelter in South Carolina. He told us (using his best Shelby Foote accent), "Aaahm real glad ya'll were able to get us outta thaya. It wuz fixin' ta git ugly on us!" You can see in the photo that his tail is wagging in appreciation.

Dexter is heartworm positive -- the scourge of the South. His treatment will take awhile, so he will not be available for adoption until the spring. In the meantime, we will gratefully accept any donations toward his veterinary bills.

When he has settled into his foster home, we'll give you a better idea of his personality. Right now, though, he hasn't even unpacked his banjo.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, 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.
