Gretchen's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Gretchen's Story...
my name is Gretchen and I am a small 3 year old little lady about 19 pounds.

I rode a long way from an Ohio Shelter to my Foster Home in Wisconsin thanks to the nice people from BREW. I was so scared that I curled up and just rode quietly all the way.

I am trying to come out of my shell so to speak, but I am still very very shy. I need a lot of reassurance to do things like go outside, come out of my crate or join the family in the living room for a movie. I like my crate and would stay in there all the time if my foster family didn't lock me out of it. I just feel so secure either in my crate or on my favorite dog bed out of the way of everyone and everything.

I am very sweet and enjoy sitting on your lap if you pet me and reassure me a lot.

I love to go outside in the fenced yard and check out all the smells. Sometimes I even get a burst of energy and run around and around the backyard really fast!

I never make messes in the house and have a great disposition: I am super gentle, and in fact I have never barked!

Because I am so shy, I don't think I would do well in a home that has small children. I need a predictable routine to follow and I sure wouldn't mind another dog or cat to hang out with.

I just know there is a perfect forever home out there for me somewhere!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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