Do you know the character Linus from the Peanuts cartoon? You do? Well, that’s me!! Linus was a gentle soul, loving and always optimistic! He did kind of like his security blanket though, and that’s me too! Well, it’s not a blanket, but I like to be close to my people and other dogs for security, and I do like to carry a ball or a toy around to keep me company! I am 4-6 years old, and around 25 pounds. I am really skinny though, and I could put on a couple more pounds. Isn’t that great? You get to feed me lots of treats and good food!

Foster Mom says I want nothing more than to be with my people and play. I have a lot of energy, so walks and play time and dog parks or a big fenced yard are just what I need. When it comes time to rest though, I am a good sleeper too! I am not on the go all the time, but when I am, I go, go, go! I have never met a dog or a person I didn’t like, although sometimes I am a little shy. I would really like a furry brother or sister to snuggle with and play with. I ride great in the car, and I love to go wherever you go. I do have a little separation anxiety when you leave me at home. I howl and whine and scratch at the doors, so foster mom has me go in my crate with a chew or a Kong and I settle down after a couple minutes. I like to howl greetings whenever the neighbors are outside too, so apartment life is not for me.

I am doing pretty well at potty training, but still have an accident now and then (when no one is looking). We are working on it, and I am much better, but every once in a while I forget to get your attention to go out. We are also playing a game called “manners” where I am learning to sit, and not jump up on people, and not beg for your food. It’s a pretty fun game, and it involves treats! I am a champion counter surfer, so foster mom is careful not to leave any food within reach.

Foster mom says I am funny and goofy, and a little bit klutzy. I will follow you around the house and “help” with whatever you are doing. Sometimes I get so excited I trip over my own feet! When I ride in the car, I am tethered in the back seat, but I like to rest my chin on your shoulder so I can see what is going on. I just like to be close to you and close to all the action! And chase a ball! I love to chase a ball! Foster mom says it is a rare Beagle that will actually bring it back to you to throw again. But I do!

If you are looking for that sweet gentle soul that will be by your side with love and loyalty, Linus is your guy! I promise to give you snuggles and kisses, but also laughs and smiles! Tell the people at Midwest BREW that I am the guy for you!

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