Vinnie's Story...
Vinnie is a wonderful dog, he is sweet and gentle and generally great to be around. Vinnie is a five year old Beagle who was loved dearly, however his owner’s health was failing and they could no longer care for Vinnie. In typical Beagle fashion, Vinnie enjoys long walks and finds every scent fascinating along the way! He is pretty “quiet” when it comes to beagles, he will certainly let you know if there is someone at the door, and may bark a bit when left alone, but other than that he doesn’t need to “announce” everything he does (like some beagles we may have known in the past). It is because of the barking that beagles are not always a great fit for apartment living. Vinnie enjoys the company of other dogs, as long as they are not too exuberant. He was a little scared of cats when he first arrived, but the friendly felines in his foster home have shown him that they are not so bad. Vinnie has been diagnosed with epilepsy, which means he may have an occasional seizure, however epilepsy is manageable with medicine and is not contagious to other pets. Come on in and meet this great dog, he is ready to find his forever home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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