Beagle mix


“Oh, Suzy Q, Oh, Suzy Q
Oh, Suzy Q, Baby I love you, Suzy Q
Well, say that you'll be mine
well, say that you'll be mine,
Well, say that you'll be mine, baby all the time, Suzy Q
Oh Suzy Q, Oh Suzy Q
Oh Suzy Q, Baby I love you, Suzy Q”

(lyrics/music from Creedence Clearwater Revival, with a slight change of spelling of Suzy!)

Looking for a smart, beautiful bundle of fun? Look no further, this 5-month old, probable beagle-aussie mix, would love to find her forever home.Suzy Q has a perfect amount of puppy energy and curiosity, but konks out nicely for naps following walks or playtime. She met grandchildren and she was very gentle with little people who appear to exhibit the same joy for life that she does! She’s learned very fast to potty outdoors, following her foster dog siblings after having only a couple early-on accidents. She runs to her crate on command (with a treat!) at bedtime and when we leave for a bit! She’s sometimes nervous about new noises and reacts with a scared/protective bark but responds well to reassurance that everything is okay. Cars passing us on the roads in the neighborhood as we walk to the park are a bit scary also, but each walk is a fun adventure for her! She loves carrying random sticks she finds!

Plenty of fun toys bring out the delightfulness of this gorgeous girl. She loves, LOVES her toys, playing tug of war with her foster parents or with her foster beagle brothers, fetching toys (though the returning is a work in progress!), and searching for squeaky squirrels in the stuffed squirrel nest toy! She entertains herself often, with toys and sometimes chasing her own tail or barking at herself in the mirror! Though she has some obvious puppy teeth, we’ve had minimal chewing issues with her. Antlers for chew toys are available and enjoyed periodically. Suzy Q loves running and playing with her foster brothers, especially the younger one who loves playtime too! She’s met other dogs, with a little tentativeness, but becomes friends pretty fast. Her foster brothers have shown her the ropes and helped her gain confidence on walks and going in and out the door to the backyard. She could certainly benefit having a canine sibling to play with but should thrive well in an environment where she gets lots of praise and attention. Most evenings she enjoys cuddling next to us on the couch following an evening walk or playtime.

Suzy Q appears to be a very smart little pup and with positive training (and treats!) and assurance, she should turn out to be an awesome member of a forever family.

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

Please read our Standards for Adoption and the information about beagles and puppies before you submit an adoption application. Remember that owning a puppy is a full time commitment and you must have the time to commit to a dog that will be with you for 12-17 years. Beagle puppies are cute - but they are very challenging. Puppies may eat your apartment (no refund of security deposit); people who are gone for more than 5 hours at a time will need to make dog walker, neighbor or doggie daycare arrangements. We discourage the adoption of puppies to families with children under the age of six, since puppies will chew toys, shoes, blankets, hands, feet and other important parts of your child's anatomy.
