Minnie * Popular Good with DogsGood with CatsPotties on a leashHousetrainedCrate TrainedNot good in apartmentsLikes to ride in the car
Gender: Female Age: 12 years - AARB Status: Available

Minnie came to us recently after her owner died. She had been well cared for except for being allowed to overeat, which resulted in excess weight! She initially weighed 54 lbs, but her diet is going well, and she is down to 46 lbs after 5 weeks. She still needs to lose about 15 or so lbs for her size. We would like her to be at her ideal weight before adoption, but this is flexible depending on adopter experience with beagle obesity. She also has Cushing's disease, which is manageable with a daily medication that she eats in a pill pocket with her breakfast! 

She has a sweet and loving personality and has been getting along in her foster home famously. She knows a few commands, like sit, come, go lie down and no, and is very well behaved. She loves to play fetch, actually LOVES to play fetch, with any kind of ball, also loves squeaky floppy toys and she plays with my beagle Baxter.  They take turns trying to entice the other one to play and will chase each other around the house.

Minnie loves to go for walks and is great on a leash. She is completely housebroken! Has never had an accident in the house. She is fine with and ignores the cat, loves to ride in the car and is not nervous at the vet's office.  Also very friendly with people (not shy). Overall she is one super beagle that will make a family very happy when they have her join them.

At her previous home she did have a beagle sister and she gets along with her 2 foster brothers really well, so it is recommended that she not be an only dog. Also no apartments as she is a bit of a guard girl - she barks at loud or strange noises, and has a deep masculine voice. We will miss her a lot. 

NOTE: Dog may be located in any of our six volunteer states (WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, MI).
