Gender: Male Age: 6 months Status: Adopted

UPDATE 8/31/21:  Just checking in with an update on Crackle.  He is now 6.5 months old and is 20lbs. Super long legs (equals f.a.s.t.) and a sweet little face. He is doing great in his foster home where he gets to play with a german shorthair pointer and a beagle mix.  They love to play chase, bitey face, share toys well and snuggle together during downtime. Crackle loves to go on walks and sniff and learn about the world. He loves people and pets and snuggles. Crackle is still figuring out the potty outside, but that will just take consistency (of which he didn't have much in his time before). He is 90% consistent and will be 100% soon. He knows how to sit for treats and learning a few other behaviors that will make him an great addition to a beagle loving home.


Crackle is a 5-month- old beagle mix who is very cuddly and loves to be in your lap. He weighs about 12 lbs, stands 14 inches tall at the shoulders and is 16 inches from top of the tail to neck.

He is very smart, loves and learns from positive treat training very well. He does bark a little but has quickly learned not to. He also has taken to his crate and will go into it upon command; he sleeps there overnight without any issues. He is housebroken for the most part but does hide poops around the house like little guys his age often do. He doesn't burst through doors or out of gates and seems to want to be home with his family. He figured out how to behave on a leash after only one training walk. If given consistent direction, he learns quickly what is expected of him.

He is very smart and with smartness can come some craftiness so his forever family will need to be sure and teach him the rules and be very consistent about it. He seems to like being the boss around other dogs but he doesn't bite or behave aggressively. He has been gentle with kids. He has not been exposed to cats. He is teething a little bit and so leaving him alone might result in some chewed up stuff but if he has chew toys he will use them. He is a small and gangly guy so he gets underfoot sometimes so he wouldn't be good in a house where tripping or falls could be serious.

Overall he'd be a loving and sweet addition to any family that was ready for a smart little guy who wants to learn the rules of your house.

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
