Hi, my name is Shadow! I am a 12-year-old neutered male beagle mix and I weigh 29 lbs. My mommy passed away and I ended up alone in a shelter. Midwest BREW is now fostering me and brightened up my life again.

I am housetrained and even know how to use a doggie door. I am a hearty eater with a good appetite. I LOVE treats and know how to sit for a treat! So it’s a good thing that I love my daily walks and can walk up to a mile or more each day.

My very favorite thing to do is play with my tennis ball. If you will throw it, I will chase it… over and over and over again. My foster mommy has played ball with me for over 2 hours at a time and I never tire of it. Hey, it’s not only fun, but also a great way to wear off the food and treats I love.

I adore lying outside and watching the world go by. It’d be great if you had a fenced yard. There are many times my foster mommy sees me outside lying under the shade tree or by the back door.

For the most part, I’m very healthy, my chest and head X-rays, blood work, lungs and heart checked out and all results came back perfect. I’ve had my teeth cleaned and a couple pulled. I did have a couple fatty tumors, which beagles are known to get, and all mine have been benign.

But I do have a chronic case of rhinitis (inflammation of the mucous membranes of the nose). So, I sneeze, have nasal discharge and sometimes I also have a slight cough. Don’t let my rhinitis scare you, the doctors say it can be managed with medicine for the rest of my life. I am currently on antibiotics, prednisone and Benadryl daily. I have also had pneumonia and the possibility for it to reoccur is greater with the nasal discharge. Remember otherwise I’m healthy, I’ll just need you to work closely with your vet. Recently my foster mom has been taking me to a holistic vet for acupuncture, laser, and Chinese herbs. This seems to be helping some too! Consider keeping the holistic treatments going when I become your forever boy!

Although I get along with all the other dogs in my foster home, I’m used to being an only dog and would be happier getting all the attention and ball playing time myself. I don’t care to play with the other dogs. I tolerate them as long as they don’t try to take my ball or butt in while I’m getting some loving. I enjoy car rides and would love to go with you when you go to places that are dog friendly.

My foster mom lets me have the run of the house when she is at work and I am a good boy. She’s not sure how long I can go before I have to potty because grandma comes over and lets me out at lunch.

My dog bed is in a crate close to my foster mom where I sleep at night with the door open. Would you mind letting me out to potty very early in the morning? The prednisone makes me thirsty which makes me have to go out very early.

So, if you’d like a walking and ball-playing buddy that enjoys being petted and loved, I’m your guy!

Please contact Midwest BREW today to learn how to speak to my foster mom.

Love, Shadow

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