Hello everyone. My name is Joe, and I am looking for my forever home. I was brought into Midwest BREW with my sister, after living mostly outdoors, and with a family for 12 years! So, as you can see, everything is a little new and a little different for me now. Foster mom guesses I didn’t have a lot of human contact or loving at my former home, as I’m still a little skittish about being handled or held.Things are getting better as I learn to trust though; I no longer flinch when someone walks by or waves an arm around. I am shy at first, and take a little time to warm up to the people I meet but once I get used to things, I am very loving- and fun! My foster mom gets a kick out of all the funny noises I make, but hey! I’m just stretching, or my nose itches, or something else important I need to talk about!

I do like my naps, but I also like to play. Another dog in the house, one who is on the gentler side would be great for me. I absolutely love being outside! A fenced yard would be great, or lots of outdoor time in the form of walks, dog parks, or just sitting in the sun is exactly what I need. I do howl when squirrels invade the yard, or I’m ready to come inside, or when I need some attention from you, so apartment life or close neighbors is probably not a good fit.

I am still working on potty training, but I am getting much better. For now, I sleep in my crate at night so I don’t have accidents in the house. I like my crate, and often take naps in there too! I like to take walks, and sniff every single thing in the world, but I could use some more practice on not pulling and getting used to the leash. I do love car rides too! And I’m gentle and patient when around the kids that I have met.

Don’t let that age thing fool you, I still have lots of love left to give, and I’m waiting patiently for the right match to come along; one that is a quieter home, with time for exploring and sniffing, and maybe a new friend to play with. Are you a match? Talk to your Midwest BREW Adoption Counselor and come get me soon!

Love and Beagle kisses,
