Hickory's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Hickory's Story...
Hi! I’m Hickory! Are you looking for a snuggle bug? Then I’m your man! I am good for hours and hours of snuggling. Throw in a belly rub and a couple ear scratches and I am yours for life! I am a big snuggle bug though, because I have some Bassett Hound in me as well as Beagle, and weigh in at about 35 pounds.

I also like playing with my foster brothers and sisters, and would love to find a home with another furry friend. I love playing with my toys, too! Foster mom says I do need to work on my manners some more, and she is teaching me appropriate behavior. She says I am learning and improving, but still have a little ways to go.

I can get a little barky sometimes, like when I see a stranger, or another dog. I just want to let them know I’m here! I want to make friends with them. I get a little too excited I guess. Otherwise mom says I’m pretty good on a leash. I’d probably do better in a home where noise isn’t too much of an issue.

I am housetrained, and also crate trained. I’m good at both! I am also really good with kids, although it would be better if the kids were a little older and not too tiny!

I was heartworm positive when Midwest BREW picked me up, but I’ve gone through the treatment to get rid of them, and I am just fine now! I do need the preventative Heartguard once a month, but I don’t mind, because they are pretty tasty little treats! And I think every dog everywhere should be on heartworm preventative, so it’s no big deal!

All in all, I just know I would be the perfect boy for you! Pick me! Pick me! My best snuggles are waiting for you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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