Edward Ridgely's Story...
Eddie is a very calm, sweet, patient and playful beagle boy. He is a little shy in new situations and with new people, but absolutely loves when he is the center of attention. He will stay close if you wish to pet him and tell him just how wonderful he is. He is fearful of loud noises and voices and will crouch down and try to make himself very small in response to either. He is a submissive fellow and never pushes to the front of the line even if food is involved. He quietly waits in his crate for his food bowl and waits his turn when treats are handed out. He does not have an aggressive bone in his body towards people or other dogs. He loves to run and play with his siblings in the back yard. His siblings range in size from 20 pounds to 47 pounds, and he is equally gentle to each of them during play. In fact, when playing with the smallest, he often rolls on his back so she can jump on him and bite his ears. He never gets mad or aggressive during the play sessions. He just truly enjoys the company of both man and dog. Although we have not tested it out, the shelter said that Eddie was fine with cats as well. He is a happy boy and has a special spring in his step. Eddie sort of prances as he trots around the yard checking out all of his favorite places.

Eddie is crate trained and often retires to a crate during the evening to sleep. He is learning his name and will sometimes come when called. The house training is a work in progress, and he seems to be getting the idea. We have not yet started much other training, but Eddie, like most beagles is very food oriented, so should do well in training. He is not much of a barker. When his siblings run to the fence to announce to the world that a bunny, squirrel or walker with or without a dog is passing the house, Eddie just watches or runs back to the porch. He does not really dig in the yard or garden so will not cause you to turn your ankle as you stroll around your property. He is a powerful chewer, but usually seeks out a nylabone durachew toy for his chewing pleasure. He is tall enough to counter surf, but doesn’t seem to be interested in that particular sport since the first few days after his arrival here. He needs some work on leash walking. He is especially bad if he is being walked with another dog. They can work in tandem to wrap you up. He does not seem to have any issues with traveling in a car, so can accompany you on your vacations. He is really a medium energy dog that realizes the days are for active play, the evenings are for unwinding, and the nights are for sleeping. He is a great companion for both humans and dogs. I think his perfect home has a fenced yard and another non aggressive dog to play with and keep him company. He would undoubtedly love to go on walks and just be with his mom and /or dad. Eddie is looking for a loving home to care for him for the rest of his life. He will return the love he receives ten times over. If you are looking for a gentle soul to share your life, please come by and see Eddie.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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