Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.

Hi, I’m Dusty, I am a mature 6-7 year old Beagle, I am small, only 21 lbs. (I might have a little Terrier mixed in there)! But mostly beagle! I love everybody. I’m good around kids,  and I’m OK with cats.  Dusty needs to be in a home where he is an only dog.

This is foster mom here, Dusty is a great dog, he is housebroken, loves walks and loves to go in the car. He is OK in his kennel, he sleeps with us at night and he can be left out when I’m gone. He loves to nap and would love a lap to snuggle on. He is very smart, knows sit, down, stay and has the best recall I’ve ever seen in a beagle!

Dusty has bronchitis and does some coughing. I am treating him with medication and a natural extract. The cost for that is around $30 a month. He is doing so much better with the care he has gotten. He hardly coughs at all. Has more energy.

Dusty would be good in most homes, he has been around a 6 year old and does fine with her. Because he has bronchitis, he would probably do better in a quieter home and a smoke free home.

Dusty is current on all vaccinations, HW negative, neutered, and micro chipped
