Argos – Adopted April 2021

About Me

Meet Argos
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 7-8 Years

Estimated Weight:  28 Pounds

UPDATE – 26 MARCH 2021 (from foster mom): Argos has been here for about a week. He’s a very easy, happy-go-lucky dog. He loves every dog and person that we meet on our walks. He’s great on the leash and is totally unfazed by the noises and action of the city. So far, he’s been fairly quiet, and only barks when playing with toys or when hearing another dog bark while outside (or on the TV). He is quiet and calm in the crate when left alone. I’d describe him as a low to medium energy dog. He’s happy to go on walks, but likes to walk slowly so he can sniff and explore. He tried to mark a couple of times inside on the first day, but since then hasn’t had any accidents. He has slept a few nights in the crate and a few out of the crate and did great in both situations-no accidents, no whining, and sleeps through the night. He is pretty independent and will entertain himself with toys. He is friendly with my own beagle, but doesn’t really care to play with her. He seems to enjoy having another dog around and will sometimes seek her out to nap close by. I’m sure he’d enjoy having doggie siblings, but he’d probably be okay as a single dog, too. Argos arrived with an itchy spot on his leg and had to wear a cone for a few days before seeing the vet. He tolerated the cone like a champ, just another example of how laid back he is. He loves to roll over on his back and wiggle around. Sometimes he’ll bark when he does this, just like he does when he gets in a playful mood with his toys. And sometimes he just falls asleep in that position, legs straight up in the air.

UPDATE – 20 MARCH 2021: Argos is now in a foster home. so stay tuned as we learn more about this beagle boy!

UPDATE – 8 MARCH 2021: Argos is now fully vetted and available for fostering/adoption.

NEW – 31 JANUARY 2021: Argos is a 7-8-year-old sweet and chunky beagle boy who weighs around 28 pounds. He’s super sweet and friendly and good with other dogs. He was a stray at the Louisa County Animal Shelter in Virginia, so his history is unknown. He will be available soon.


Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
