Augustus's Story...
Hello there! My name is Augustus and I am new to the rescue. As you can see I am a very thin boy, so the vet is doing some testing to make sure I am healthy, while my foster family is feeding me three meals a day to help me gain some weight. The vet thinks I am 6-7 years old. My foster mom says I am a sweetheart. I’m also a “flopper”…I will jump in your lap, flop over on my belly and beg for a tummy rub. For some reason this makes my foster family laugh. Although I haven’t been here in my foster home for very long, I get along with my two Basset sisters. I’m okay with those cat “things” if they give me my space. I seem to be afraid of them, so if they invade my personal space I will give a hoot and maybe even tell them to back off with my mouth. Since my foster home doesn’t have any human children, I can’t tell you how I am around them. I’ve already figured out the doggie door and my foster mom says I am potty trained even though I tend to mark things (but they tell me that will cease when I get this “neuter” thing done to me, whatever that is??). So if you are looking for a sweet, “I love a chair and a good rub” boy, I am your man!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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