Laurie Maki: To help with Myrtle’s medical expenses. Christina Patterson: Saw this sweet pup shared on Twitter and I wish I could donate more.

Myrtle was a sad, skinny stray when she arrived at Midwest BREW. Now, with lots of TLC, nourishing food, and much-needed medical care, she has blossomed – she’s a beautiful chocolate tri-colored beagle, with lovely amber eyes. We think she’s about four years old, and she weighs 21 pounds.

She gets along fine with our resident beagle. They share the couch and walk together well. We don’t have cats, so we can't say how she'd do with them. She doesn’t live with children, but she’s interacted calmly with the children she’s met at a friend’s home and at the park. When it’s time for a car ride, Myrtle is a good passenger.

Myrtle is extremely food motivated! She uses a slow feeder bowl so she doesn’t eat too quickly. She's also happy to try to eat our resident beagle's food and any people food within her reach. We've been helping her learn that this is not ideal behavior, and her forever people will have to continue to work with her on this.

Myrtle likes people, but she's a bit independent, too. She enjoys hanging out in the kitchen during meal prep and snuggling on the couch. She's learning how to play with toys, but she's equally happy to snooze in her crate. She'd really like to sleep on the human bed, but we've encouraged her to sleep in her crate instead. She's happy in the crate at night, as well as when we're away. She’ll also go into her crate when she just wants some alone time.

If we head outside to the yard or for a walk, she's delighted to join us. She loves to explore the neighborhood, and she's happy to lay in the sunshine. Surprisingly, she's a very quiet beagle; she's only barked once since she's been with us. She does talk sometimes – cute little whimpers, snuffles, and vocal yawns – especially when she's ready to get up in the morning.

She walks nicely on a leash, but being a typical beagle, she likes to stop and sniff a good bit. Loud noises or unexpected movements startle her, so her new family will need to be mindful of this. She’s also super interested in squirrels and would love to take off after those critters – so walking her on a harness with a firm grip on her leash is a must.
We've been teaching her to sit on command – especially before she gets her meals – and she's doing well with that. She's done well with potty training, and she’s starting to go to the door to let us know when she needs to go out.

Myrtle is a calm, chill, happy dog. She greets us with a wagging tail in the morning, ready for whatever adventures are coming her way. She'll make a delightful addition to some lucky family!
