I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Captain (Petraits attached) is a playful nine-month-old, 32-pound, Beagle-mix looking for a loving guardian.
Found as a stray in Chicago, he had acid burns to his rear end. We can only hope that it was an accident and that people weren’t cruel to him. However, based on his fearfulness of new people, I’m afraid that it was probably an intentional act. Living in a foster home, Captain is learning to love and trust again. He is getting acclimated to new dog friends too. He is good with some dogs when introduced carefully, but he does enjoy barking at and chasing cats.
Captain had a rough start in life. He was obviously not well-socialized or trained as a pup, so he still jumps up and nips, so he’s best in a home with loving and patient dog-experienced adults and teenagers willing to help Captain with his training.
Captain loves to play fetch and play with his toys. He has learned to sit on command and takes treats very gently from your fingers. He is very food and toy-motivated, so that will help immensely in his training. He is also already housebroken and crate-trained, but will benefit from lots of continued training to boost his confidence and erase his fears.
