Hello, all!

Let me introduce you to Skippy.  I really do not understand how he could have ended up in a shelter at his tender age of about 5 months. It may be that he just had too much energy for his owners to deal with.  Don't get me wrong, he's not hyper, he's just a puppy and he acts like one.

He was a bit fearful when he got here but soon settled in and decided that one of the resident beagles made a great playmate.  There are times when Resident Beagle has had enough and decides to bark at Skippy and chase him off.  When this happens he runs to me for protection.  This happens less often the longer he has been here.

One thing I noticed about Skippy was from his first night here.  Usually the first night the foster has a hard time relaxing and getting to sleep. Not Skip!  He curled right up and slept the whole night through.  He does like to be touching you when he is in bed and you shouldn't be surprised if you wake up to him wrapped around your neck or draped across the top of your head.

He is a good eater and would be happy to share whatever you are eating.  He loves playing with and annoying Resident Dog until she gets fed up with him so then he will find something to toss around and will play by himself.

He is doing fairly well with his house training. We have a doggy door he uses but when the weather is really cold or windy and the door is closed he does go to the door wanting out but if you don't see him and open the door, well, he does what he has to do.

All in all, I believe he would be a great addition to any family though maybe not so much with small children because of the puppy tendency to chew on everything including little fingers. Also, I don't think it would bother him at all to snatch food out of those little hands.

He's a good boy and just keeps getting better. If you are looking for a pup to grow up with your family, Skippy just might be the one.

NOTE: Dog 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.
