Atticus's Story...
Just look at this gorgeous fellow! Atticus is of unknown heritage but a good guess is a beagle/lab cross. He has a lovely tri-color short coat of a beagle with the size and temperament of a smaller lab. Atticus was rescued from a kill county shelter as his time was up. He is about a year and a half old, is affectionate, curious, playful, gentle, friendly and eager to learn just what you want of him. He is learning to walk better on a leash, and “sit” and “down “on command (treats helpful!). The prior owner did report that he is good with kids and other animals. Our two resident dogs enjoy their play time with him and he seems very calm around the cats. He also reported that he was “mostly” housebroken. I can report that he does “his business” on walks and not in his pen and can hold it a long time which is a good indication that with attention, he should be easy to fully housebreak. Atticus has spent several nights in a crate without complaint or accident. He should make a wonderful family pet with love and more training. Won’t you give this lovely boy and second chance in life?? Email the foster parent at or call 540-586-4691 for more information or to meet this cutie.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bedford 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 Bedford 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Beagle/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bedford paves the way for another one to be saved.
