Beagle mix

Hi Beagle Lovers!  I am Giacomo, but my foster mom calls me Gio. Aren’t I cute?  That’s what I hear all day long, so it must be true!  I am a 12-week-old beagle/terrier puppy.  I came in with my 4 siblings and I was the only boy. I am your typical puppy: curious, playful, chewing, silly, learning, etc.  I love my foster mom’s shoes but Iam learning that toys are more appropriate. Luckily there are baskets full of toys in my foster home. I love all of them. 

I get along with the other dogs in my foster home, but I am still a little scared when I meet new dogs, so you should have patience with me.  Once I get to know them, I am playful but it is scary meeting for the first time.  Once I get more confidence, I am sure I will get better. Same thing with humans. Sometimes I get scared and I run away, but then I run right back to them because I so badly want to say hi.  My foster mom tells me I’ve gotten so much better with that. 

I love treats and food! I am learning how to play with the other dogs in my foster home.  They are teaching me what is appropriate and what is annoying.  Luckily, most of them love me.  I also live with a cat.  She is very interesting and I keep trying to get her to play but mostly she just sits there. My foster mom tells her to run away, but she is old and doesn’t really care.  If I were to live with a more spunky cat, I am sure the cat will tell me off.

I am looking for a home where someone will love me and teach me all about being a good dog.  Is it you?  I am ready and waiting!

NOTE: Dog 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; and for families with very small children, puppies will chew toys, shoes, blankets and hands, feet and other important parts of your child's anatomy.
