  • Beagle Dog For Adoption in Eden Prairie, MN, USA

    Myles D17088...

    Breed: Beagle
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Adoption Fee: 250. Name: Myles Age: 10 years Gender: Male Breed: Beagle Weight: 27 lbs Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: Yes, a bit unsure of them Kid friendly: Yes House Trained: In progress Crate Trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: From a shelter in Kentucky Adoption Fee: $250 From the Foster: Myles is a sweet old boy. We is pretty low key except when it comes to his nose; then he gets all excited and the excitable Beagle comes out. Yes, he's a little overweight because of his nose and his desire to eat. He does well on a leash and enjoys leisurely walks. Myles does well in crate but prefers to be left out. He is doing pretty well with potty training, every once in awhile he will still have the occasional accident. He is fine with dogs. A bit unsure and afraid of the cats, but getting better at being in the same space- it's mostly at the cats if you hear him bark. Fine with kids and all people. He's not an in your face kind of guy, but definitely likes his chin and ears rubbed and hanging out by his people. He can startle with quick movement, especially on walks.

    Breed: Labrador Retriever
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 300. Name: Akoya Age: Approximate DOB 11/18/14 Gender: Female Breed: Labrador Retriever Weight: 60 pounds Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Average History: Came to rescue pregnant and injured Adoption Fee: $300 From the Foster: This black beauty is Akoya, or Koya for short. She came into rescue with Secondhand Hounds two years ago now, pregnant, and with a broken leg from being hit by a car. Where she was before that, we aren't sure, and she has some emotional scars that she carries around, but she is a GOOD dog. After she was a good mama and raised her puppies, they went off to their forever homes, and she has been reflecting and making self improvements. Akoya is the sweetest girl with people she knows. She loves laying on the couch with her foster family, watching squirrels, and romping through the snow. She loves to sleep on the end of the bed, watching over her favorite people. When new people come over, she has had the tendency to bark and growl because she is unsure, and she just wants to keep her family safe. However, she has been doing MUCH better with this, with practice! Akoya loves going on walks, but she does pull excitedly on a leash, so she does best on a Gentle Leader. She tends to get nervous meeting new dogs on walks, and will bark and growl at them also, but again, she is working on redirecting and doing better! She DOES get along with dogs that she has been properly introduced to - she has historically done better with male dogs, or dogs that are submissive and playful. She has also done well with puppies. Akoya is 100% potty trained, and will tell you when she needs to go out. She does well being left loose in the house when you are gone, and she isn't destructive (yay, older dog with training!!) She has made great strides with training, and would continue to do so with an assertive owner. She already knows a lot of commands - she is VERY smart, and loves to please you!! This girl is loyal to a fault, and just wants to be the BEST puppy you could ever have. She just needs someone to say YES, Akoya, we believe in you!

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. Name: Jackson Age: DOB Approx. 1/21/15 Gender: Male Breed: Pitty Weight: 55 Dog friendly: Yes, with proper intros (not a fan of small dogs) Cat friendly: no Kid friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes, but seems to do well left out, too Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an animal control Adoption Fee: $300.00 From the Foster: Jackson is a mellow, sweet and attentive boy who just wants to be near his people, snuggle and play with his ball. He listens well, is easy to redirect and knows basic commands. When I’m home he stays nearby either laying right at my feet or on the couch next to me. He is a cuddle monster in the morning and would love someone that let him sleep with them at night. True to the pitty standard, Jackson loves his people and would want nothing more than to cuddle with them all day if he could. When you’re not home though, he’s ok just hanging out by himself on the couch – no crate needed for this kid! He is so eager to please and follows his people around all day long just to be by them. He lives in an apartment now and provided you are able to get him out and exercise him appropriately he has no issues with that lifestyle. As perfect as he sounds, he does have his quirks (Who doesn’t, right?!?) He is working on some leash aggression issues with other dogs and people – he barks and lunges when on a leash, and with his size and appearance that can be quite intimidating. He’s in training for it and doing really well, but will need someone ok with that, and with working with him on it. He is dog friendly, and plays well with other dogs but for play time - doggy daycares work better for him than dog parks typically since he needs a little extra monitoring. He is a bit less fond of smaller dogs so monitoring and playing with the right dogs is important. In his forever home he would love a dog friend to play with though – providing they are about his size and on the tolerant side of things (Jackson can be a little demanding of his play friends!). If you have a little experience with dogs and are willing to take on a guy that needs a little bit more precise handling to be perfect – Jackson is your man! He might have a few quirks to him but once you learn his needs he really is a great friend.

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
    Sex: Male Male

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Adoption Fee: 350.00. Name: Freddy Age: DOB Approx. 7/18/08 Gender: Male Breed: Pitty Weight: 60 Dog friendly: TBD Cat friendly: TBD Kid friendly: Yes but doesn't live with any House Trained: Yes Crate Trained: Does better left out Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an animal control Adoption Fee: $250.00 From the Foster: Freddy is a fantastic dog full of love and enthusiasm! He does great with people as long as they are respectful and is a perfect cuddle buddy. If he wants something from you (attention, potty breaks, etc.) he will gently put both paws up on you from a sitting position and look directly into your soul. He sleeps on the bed with us, usually right in the crook of my knee or on the pillow between our heads, so personal space isn't really a thing once he decides he really loves you. He's really good at "sit" and "down", and we're working on "stay/wait", "shake", "off", and "give me a kiss". He is flawlessly potty trained and can go up to 8 hours without a potty break, but does get a little anxious after 4-6 hours alone. He also doesn't do very well in a crate, but as long as the space is cleaned up (no dirty dishes or takeout boxes) he does well when left alone in the bedroom. When we do come home, h e will greet us and new visitors to the house with barks and wiggles, but other than that he is pretty quiet when in the house. On walks Freddy does very well with a gentle leader and wears a muzzle as a precaution because he doesn't do well with other dogs on leash. He loves destroying cute little stuffed toys and staying busy with chewing or puzzle toys like Kongs, bully sticks, and his Qwizl. He needs to eat his food in a slow feeder bowl, or better yet a bob-a-lot, because he inhales it like a hoover. Right now, we are working with Freddy on basic obedience to build confidence so that we can start to socialize him. He doesn't do well with other dogs and needs a lot of work in order to be comfortable in an environment with other dogs. He gets very intensely focused on things like hearing dogs in the hall of my apartment building and watching my geckos climb in their cage, so we would like to practice how to redirect his attention to break that intensity. Freddy would be great in a home who just wants a big cuddle bug. He doesn't have the energy of a young pup anymore, although don't get me wrong, he still gets the zoomies every once in a while and enjoys a good walk. He has so much potential to be someone's best friend in a single animal home and would thrive with someone who is willing to commit to his training to bring out the best version of him.

Name: Bruno Age: DOB appox. 3/19/14 Gender: Male Breed: Pitty Weight: 57 Dog friendly: No Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Older due to mouthy behavior House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from a local animal shelter Adoption Fee: $300.00 From the Foster: Bruno is very much a people dog. He loves his people. He is high energy so would do well with an active family. He is fully potty trained and crate trained. He does well in his crate while we are active work. He would love nothing more than to be spoiled with treats and run around outside. He does need a special diet because of his allergies and we also give him over the counter allergy meds....but he is such a good boy for those. Everyday he takes them nicely and easily. I would recommend no other pets at this time and older children as he is rambunctious and doesn't realize he isn't a small doggie. Bruno is very much a lover. He loves his scratches too and if you get him in a couple spots his legs just starts going with it......cutest thing ever!!!! He has his own fb page bruno fka jazzy johnny where I update with pics as well.

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Adoption Fee: 30.00. Name: Sweet Pea Age: DOB Approx. 12/12/14 Gender: Female Breed: Pitty / Boxer Weight: 45 Dog friendly: No Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an animal control with her 6 babies Adoption Fee: $300.00 From the Foster: Sweet Pea is a young pup that lives up to her name, in that she loves snuggling, playing, and loving her humans! Unfortunately, we've concluded that she would do best in a home without other animals, as she is quite reactive to other dogs, cats, and other small furry creatures. This little girl has a lot of playful energy left in her, so an active home, or one with a large fenced yard would probably suit her best to get some wiggles out!. She's quickly learned how fetch works, happily chasing down sticks or balls, and loves to run. She's super smart, and loves to learn new tricks. When she's feeling silly, she'll chase her tail or run and jump around like a goofball. When walking Sweet Pea, using a gentle leader works the best - it helps her not pull as much, and since she is reactive when seeing other dogs it helps keep her concentrated on you and not those pesky dogs! She usually does better towards the end after she's expended some of her energy. She's gotten better at tolerating her crate, and does fine in it but I would say she wont be happy in a home that needs to crate her for 8 hours every day. She'd prefer a home where she can snuggle with her humans at night instead of being crated. Sweet Pea is a very good dog, and if you're ready to play with her, and love her, and are ok with her needing to be your one and only best fur friend - she will pay you back ten fold with love!

    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 350.00. Name: Squooshy Date of Birth: 07/20/2014 Gender: Female Breed: Shepherd x Weight: 65 Dog friendly: Yes, needs companion dog in the home Cat friendly: Yes Kid friendly: Yes, but older due to being skittish House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Local Stray Adoption Fee: $350 From the Foster: Squooshy is a sweetheart of a dog, with introverted tendencies. She took a bit of time to warm up to her foster family, but now follows around her foster mom and girlfriends, as she just wants to be ‘one of the girls’. She loves to be outside walking or hiking, playing fetch, chasing with her pup friends, or just being an overall goofball. While very sweet and loving, Squooshy can be quite shy at first, warming up more quickly to women. She is fearful of men and does best if they ignore her. She loves all dogs and would do really well with another dog (or cat) in the house that can help teach her some confidence. Since she does have some fears that she will need to continue to work on, she will do best with a quiet & soothing household. Squooshy does get startled easily, so she would do best in a home no kids or kids 16+. If you would like to get to know me, fill out an app today

    Sex: Male Male

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. Name: Norway Date of Birth: Approx. 09/20/2014 Gender: Male Breed: Pitty / Lab Weight: 55 Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: TBD Kid friendly: Older preferred House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an animal shelter Adoption Fee: $300 From the Foster: Norway is a gorgeous boy with captivating golden eyes. He proudly accepts many compliments on them. His personality is a mix of Gonzo and Romeo, silly and sweet. His goal in life is to make you proud of him, he is very smart, and he responds very well to training. He is a huge fan of food, which is another training perk! He drools sometimes – especially if he knows you have a treat. Norway is a trickster, and could do great with further training - In addition to sit and stay, he has also learned paw, back it up, let’s go to the right/left, wait, and roll over. He is very proud of himself, especially for paw, which he likes to show off. He is definitely a Velcro dog, and he loves to follow me around the house. He has come a long way since being rescued – he was terrified of doing anything himself having not had his basic needs met when he was young. He has his quirks, and he makes mistakes, but he is a GOOD boy who needs someone to see through to his heart and love him for all of it. He loves other dogs, and loves to play with them, but also to cuddle and give them kisses. Norway probably isn't a dog park dog, and needs to meet dogs more one on one. He has a tendency to jump up and be mouthy to get attention, and we are working very hard at breaking this habit. Older children are required because Norway's jumping, wappy tail, and arousal/anxiety stuff. He also gets a bit upset when new people come to the front door, which we are also working on, and he is making great progress. He does great meeting new people out and about on walks, etc. He is pretty good on a leash, but does get excited for SQUIRRELS and other fun stuff outside. He isn’t destructive with furniture or anything, but he does have a closet shoe fetish… Either a fenced yard and another playful dog, or an active person who wants to go on a lot of walks and adventures would be ideal for him. He is a morning dude, and loves nothing more than to share your bed and get REALLY CLOSE just so you know he’s thinking about you all night long. However, he WILL kennel at night if you don’t want him in bed. He isn’t a perfect dog, but if you could only see how far he’s come, you’d see what I see…the most beautiful, grateful, loyal heart, and the silliest goof all in one. A gem. A diamond in the ruff.

I have had a rough start to life and had a few health challenges but I’m all healed up and ready to find my forever family!! My favorite thing in the world is to be next to my humans, I love snuggling and sitting with them and making sure they know I’m right there for anything they need. My second favorite thing is peanut butter frozen bones and de-stuffing any sort of stuffed animal. I love those! I’m pretty food oriented (but I’m grain free!) and will do just about anything for a treat. I’m housebroken but not crate trained. I do well without a crate and just lie on the couch and protect the neighborhood when I’m left alone & I’m not overly vocal says my foster family. I love car rides, baths and even love going to the vet (They love me there)….not many dogs can say that. I also put up with my foster family putting hats and clothes on me, I secretly love my jammies! I get so so so excited to see my humans my little body just wiggles and wiggles! My forever home shouldn’t be a chaotic one, I prefer it just to be chill….I like walks and playing outside, but am still learning this whole family dog business, so I will need a person/family that is willing to work on this with me and probably without small humans running around, the older ones I can handle. So far I love it! If you’re wanting a Velcro fur friend and are willing to spoil me rotten- I mean, train me- then I’m your dog! Can’t wait to meet you. – Princess Tomato

Energy level: Moderate History: From a shelter in Oklahoma Adoption Fee: $250 *NOT SUITABLE IN AN APARTMENT OR SHARED WALLS* From the Foster: Hello! My name is Atticus! I have been in the rescue for a long time, but don't let that deter you - I am a fun-loving little guy who cannot wait to find a forever family. My biggest challenge is that I would LOVE a stay at home parent. I have been used to having my foster dad around all day, and it suits me very well. I like playing with other dogs, and cuddling with me foster brother, too! I met a Great Dane the other day and thought she was the best! I have met kitties I am good with, but should only be with dog savvy kitty friends. I have never met a person I did not adore! I am goofy and let my foster mom dress me up in clothes and hats. I know sit and down and am very smart. I do bark when I am excited or anxious, so apartments would not be the best fit for me. Hopefully after reading all about me, you are still interested, and will fill out an application. I can't wait to be with my forever family! I promise I will be a good boy.
